"Time, place, climate warm and moist, rocks land low and swampy, plants - cycads and conifers, animals - walking, swimming, flying dinosaurs


And now the climate had grown warm and moist - much of the land is swampy again - Great plant eating dinosaurs live in these swamps

Now some of the little dinosaurs have learned to fly and the ancestor of our friends appears - Some dinosaurs grow armour to protect themselves from the meat eating dinosaurs."
