4: What Occurred | Geographical changes ocurred during the Eocene period. At the beginning of that time, the continents began to move from their positions. Australia began to split from the Northern part of Antarctica where isolated cold water channeled them. Northern Laurasia began to break up. In addition, Europe, Greenland, South America, and North America all split apart. Then India drifted from Africa and got connected to Asia. The Earth continued to move to the position it is at now. | 4

9: Animals | That time experienced the beginning of new herbivorous mammals.They were larger than elephants and had only 1 or 3 toes on each foot. There were also the (dawn) horses and zebras with only 1 big toe on each foot. The Eocene period was also the evolution of early grazing animals like cattle and sheep that had simple stomach but larger bodies . Carnivorous mammals also appeared at that time as well as whales, early bats, beavers, and mice. Though in the Eocene period the mammals were different than nowadays the insect life was the same as now. | 9

10: Climate | The early Eocene period was the warmest of that time. The climate was around 30c with lots of rain and humidity.Near the sea it was 14c.However,in winter the temperature got a bit cooler .In North America it was less warm and it was as low as 5c.The climate in the Eocene period was generally warm with the highest level of greenhouse gas. | 10

12: Summary | The Eocene period experienced the most dramatic climate than any other time the climate was very warm, humid, and rainy. In addition, the greenhouse gas level was very high. The herbivorous mammals at that time were different. They were giant and had only 1 or 3 digits on each foot. The warm and tropical climate during that time had a great impact on plants. There was a great variety of plants and flowers. From all of whats mentioned, we can note that the Eocene period was different than our time regarding the living organisms due to nature and climate. However, the end of that time experienced the beginning of modern mammals. | 12
