      About 65 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous Period, the Earth was affected by major changes to its environment. Animal and plant life were plunged into danger. It may only have taken one of these changes to affect life on Earth, or perhaps it was a combination of several. Whichever is. Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for million years, from the start of the Jurassic (about million years ago) until the end of the Cretaceous (66 million years ago), when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction.
