Jurassic

Life has recovered from multiple extinction events. There is now so much going on in the sea, the air, and on the land. Mammals have already evolved and are tiny and chillin.

First person story

Plesiosaur sped through the water craning its short neck and pumping its fins which it used like wings to cut through the water. Each push and counter-push of its four fins propelled him at high speed. Its long head pierced the water It wasn't hunting or fleeing, it was having fun. Huge variety of life in the Jurassic sees parted before him. He craned his neck, pumped his fins, and suddenly broke the surface. His body arched, and then crashed back down into the familiar seas. Around him were all the sea creatures of Jurassic life. Long, fluorescent jellyfish,_______________ patrolled these waters. Creature turned and swam down to the depths, is letting out a long, low-frequency call that advertised his position. The water began to get cold around him, but creature didn't mind the chill for short periods. A reply came, series of low-frequency notes that reverberated through the water. it was a female. The message had no real content other than the vague identity of its owner, but that was enough. It was saying "Find me." _____Something about the breeding cycle of this species. Creature was surprised: it seems too easy. Nevertheless, in a food of energy creatures spiralled upwards in the great Ocean and again through the surface into the strange world beyond, a world that we would scarcely recognise as belonging to Earth.

Creature observed some of the strange deep sea creatures. Many were fish with enormous eyes which darted out of the way, or the occasional squid that had lots its school. But also in the depths also contained monsters. Creature has scars all over his body, mostly from confrontations with other males of his species but also from other huge, ambush species, and giant squid.

Ichthyosaurs also patrolled the oceans, and competed with the Plesiosauria, the order in which Creature belonged. In the long run, they would lose and the Plesiosauria would rule the oceans of the next period.

It was the time of year for a great migration of fish, who would travel vast distances to get to an appropriate river in which to spawn their eggs. The moving masses of fish attracts a menagerie of predators, who often follow the fish right up unto the rivers.

Creature heard another call from far off: the same female from before.

Species

Plants

Though they are a minor component of the plant kingdom today, during the Jurassic period, they were extremely common. They have changed little since the Jurassic, compared to some major evolutionary changes in other plant divisions. -Wikipedia, Cycad
