The Triassic was a period in Earth's history. The beginning of the Mesozoic, this period marked the beginning of the dinosaur dynasty, along with the first pterosaurs, plesiosaurs, pliosaurs, ichthyosaurs, turtles, lizards, snakes, rhynchocephalians, crocodylomorphs and mammals. As the reptiles spread across the land, they also made their way into the seas and the skies.
