The Jurassic was the beginning of the age when reptiles dominated the land, sea, and air. During this period, vegetation was greener and more lush. By the late Jurassic, great dinosaurs such as Brachiosaurus, Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and Stegosaurus, had evolved on land. Pterosaurs ruled the skies and the earliest known birds appeared.
The Jurassic Period also saw the breakup of the super-continent Pangea, which began in the Triassic, continue.
