Capturing the Mesozoic biomes that dinosaurs lived in is fascinating to behold. Let’s see which ecosystems existed during those times and what made the ancient beasts enjoy them.
Movies and other forms of entertainment usually paint dinosaurs as living in vast open plains like the lions of Africa. Perhaps you’ve seen them running in dense forests on TV like in America. However, there were many Mesozoic biomes back in the day that attracted various types of dinos.
Some dinosaurs preferred to stay in swamp areas or regions with plenty of water. There were plenty of desert locations in that era, and you’d be surprised how many species enjoyed the hear and dry land. In total, scientists believe there were a total of five primary biomes during the Mesozoic era.
Tundra and Glacial areas were mostly absent during that time, which is a stark contrast to the Ice Age. There were mostly cool and seasonal temperate biomes, which is why the dinosaurs thrived so well. You can read more about these locations, ecosystems, and what they consisted of in the articles below.
