For about 160 million years, dinosaurs were considered rulers of the world. They emerged during the Triassic Period (231 million years ago) and became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Period about 66 million years ago. While the dinosaurs were the kings of the land, the seas were dominated by marine reptiles such as the paleosaurs and mosasaurs.
