Late Triassic

Because we are interested in dinosaurs, we will take the luxury of bypassing a mere 3.77 billion years of continental evolution and zip right up to a time when all the continents coalesced into a single landmass, now known as Pangaea (Figure 2.5). Like any large land mass, Pangaea had many great mountain ranges; however, it was at least theoretically possible to walk on land from any place to any other. Unlike today, where the faunas and floras on different continents differ, Late Triassic faunas and floras all around the world were very similar.
