History

Cretaceous period

During the late Cretaceous period, Mongolia was quite similar to what it is like today. The Gobi Desert was still a hot desert, with seasonal temperatures differing from warm summers to bitter winters. There was also large patches of greenery in some areas.

Mongolia was abundant with a diverse selection of prehistoric life. Many types of dinosaurs thrived there as well as different species of mammals. One of the most common dinosaurs were the ornitischian Protoceratops. These animals were hunted by the toddler-sized Velociraptor. In other areas, the large avian-like Gigantoraptor was one of the largest predators in its ecossystem.
