Africa Dinosaurs


I


Recent discoveries suggest that modern day Zambia and Tanzania in Africa may have been the early birthplace of the dinosaur long before they roamed the rest of the earth, however most failed to survive a mass extinction some 252 million years ago at the end of the Permian period.

Today large swathes of Africa remain unexplored so doubtlessly the forthcoming years will lead to new discoveries as to the extent of the reach of dinosaurs across the continent.
