The Age of the Dinosaurs

Image showing a portion of the Staircase of Time during the time when the dinosaurs lived.  Please have someone assist you with this.

Here is a part of the "Staircase of Time" showing when the dinosaurs lived. Dinosaurs appeared on Earth nearly 250 Million years ago, early in a period of time geologists called Triassic. They grew in numbers and types during the Jurassic time period, and dominated Earth during the Cretaceous time period. Their feet shook the ground for nearly 200 million years - 40,000 times as long as recorded human history! But then suddenly they all mysteriously disappeared at the end of the Cretaceous Period about 65 million years ago. Why? Look in some of the other rooms and see!
