Late Triassic to Early Jurassic

With great teamwork...
these kids turned the Triassic Period into 
the Early Jurassic Period.

While discussing how the 
dinosaurs tried to survive... 
and how they evolved.

Maybe living in herds...
or going about it alone.

Seeing how the dinosaur
might have eaten...

Not only were the dinosaurs
trying to survive... so were the plants.

Looking to see how 
dinosaurs color your world...

It's different for everyone...

Dark colors, to bright ones...

It doesn't matter....

Who really knows what color they were?

Here's wishing these two little ones...

for all your help
in cleaning up our world...

Love to see
