KP Extinction Layer Sample
Great for dinosaur enthusiasts!
The Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) extinction event, also known as the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) extinction, was a sudden mass extinction of three-quarters of the plant and animal species on Earth, approximately 66 million years ago. With the exception of some ectotherm species such as the leatherback sea turtle and crocodiles, no tetrapods weighing more than 55 pounds survived. It marked the end of the Cretaceous period, and with it the end of the entire Mesozoic Era, opening the Cenozoic Era that continues today.
