Mammals that evolved during Tertiary Era eventually faced a changing environment during this era. Earth's climate cooled, causing a series of ice ages. Continental glaciers advanced and retreated over parts of Europe and North America. Earth's water froze in continental glaciers that the level of the ocean fell by more than meters. The first mammals also appeared during the Mesozoic, but would remain small—less than 15 kg (33 lb)—until the Cenozoic. Geologic periods Following the Paleozoic, the Mesozoic extended roughly million years, from to 66 million years ago when the Cenozoic Era began.

The supercontinent cycle is the quasi-periodic aggregation and dispersal of Earth's continental are varying opinions as to whether the amount of continental crust is increasing, decreasing, or staying about the same, but it is agreed that the Earth's crust is constantly being reconfigured.During the first half of XX Century, the idea that the planet Earth had expanded its volume through time enjoyed far larger support among the Earth scientists than the theory of Continental Drift.Dinosaurs began in the Triassic, spread during the Jurassic, and dominated Earth in the Cretaceous.

They are so prominent that the Mesozoic is also called "The Age of Reptiles." But dinosaurs are not the only life form around: birds and mammals also appear during the Mesozoic, as well as deciduous trees and flowering plants.
