Caption: Jehol Biota. Illustration of a prehistoric scene, showing the animals and plants that existed in north-eastern China between 133 and 120 million years ago, during the Lower Cretaceous. A volcanic eruption in the background is an example of one of the processes that led to the formation of a fossil record of the animals and plants present in this time and location. The climate was temperate, and the area had numerous lakes and wetlands. Animals shown here include feathered and other dinosaurs, birds, insects, early mammals, fish, flying reptiles (including pterosaurs) and aquatic reptiles.
