The Jurassic constitutes the middle period of the Mesozoic era and is named after the Jura Mountains, where limestone strata from the period were first identified.The Jurassic Period was the second segment of the Mesozoic Era. It occurred from 199.6 to 145.5 million years ago , following the Triassic Period and preceding the Cretaceous Period. During the Jurassic Period, the supercontinent Pangaea split apart.
