Key Start

With continents separating instead of colliding there were few high mountains and the continents sank down below warm shallow seas. This was the Cretaceous period, the age of chalk. The continents moved towards their present positions.
The most dramatic movement was of India (Ind). Watch how it shoots northwards during the next 100 million years!

Dinosaurs still ruled the land. Flowering plants continued to evolve.
