On this episode of Herpin' Time Radio we conclude the Mesozoic Era series with Part III, The Cretaceous. The Cretaceous was the last and longest segment of the Mesozoic Era lasting about 79 million years. Life on Earth continued to evolve as continents drifted apart to where they are today. The Cretaceous period ended with a dramatic mass extinction that ended most life on Earth, including the dinosaurs, that set the stage to create the world as we know it. Join us as Amber Redfield takes us back in time to this amazing era.

Join us as Amber Redfield walks us through this exciting time period! Amber is a musuem educator as well as an amatuer paleontologist working as a fossil preparator at The Academy of Natural Sciences at Philadelphia Pennsylvania. We are not only going to talk with Amber about the dinosaurs, but also about the climate, the plant life, the insects, and every single thing we can pack in to one episode.
