"From about 60,000,000 years ago

Now the mammals play the leading parts

The dinosaurs have disappeared never to return again - In the plant kingdom the flowering plants - the plants with covered seeds were the most numerous and over shadowed the conifers fern mosses

The climate was warm and humid and slowly the mountains were worn away

Cenozoic Era, Paleocene Period, Eocene Epoch 

To about 72,000,000 years ago."
