Many other land animals were hard hit. In the seas, all ammonoids died, as well as many species of fish, brachiopods, clams, snails, and sponges. Numerous groups of land and sea plants disappeared, even among the dominant angiosperms. What survived? Some reptiles, including crocodiles, turtles, lizards, and snakes, did. And many kinds of sea creatures, birds, mammals, insects, and flowering plants survived. As with other mass extinctions, paleontologists aren’t sure what caused the loss of so many species.

Earthquakes are evidence of moving plates. Fossils, too, show that continents have changed. When all the continents were joined together, plants and animals could move across the land, and their fossils are found almost everywhere. As the continents moved apart, however, populations of species on the various land masses became permanently separated. Changes in one population led to the evolution of new species that were different from the ones now far away. The movement of land had other effects on life.
