The Carboniferous Forests

I have just finished doing the Carboniferous period, here are some facts.

  • It began 362 M.Y.A.

  • It ended around 290 M.Y.A

  • It was made up of huge swamps and green scaly trees.

  • It was the fifth period after the Precambrian.

  • The first reptiles appeared. Their immediate improvement to amphibians was that they could mate on land.

  • The first insects appeared. There was a dragonfly around that's wingspan could reach two-foot in length! (There is an image on the right.)

  • The first forests appeared.
