A Framework of Dinosaur Species and Areas Where Fossils Were Found

"Dinosaur fossils are found worldwide. Here is an interesting framework to see where the different dinosaur species were roaming."

It was through the Triassic period of the Mesozoic era that dinosaurs evolved. The Triassic period was about 230 million years ago. Different species of these majestic beasts were roaming the earth during that period. Getting the same species in Portugal, Africa, and the United States proves that the dinosaurs could move between most continents when the earth had one supercontinent landmass, which we know as Pangaea. 

Thirty million years later, the supercontinent split into Laurasia and Gondwana. The Tethys Ocean that surrounded Pangea flooded most of Europe when Pangaea split. During the Cretaceous period, from 145 to 65 million years ago, the continents started to form in the shape we know them today. Most of the dinosaur fossils were found in North America, Argentina, and China. Here is a framework to indicate where the different species of dinosaur fossils were found and from which era they came:
