Support your local PBS Member Station here: https://to.pbs.org/DonateEONS Check out our NEW POSTER: https://store.dftba.com/products/eons-poster At the beginning of the Triassic Period, with the continents locked together from pole-to-pole in the supercontinent of Pangea, the world is hot, flat, and very, very dry. But then 234 million years ago, the climate suddenly changed for the wetter.

Cory Griffiths : That would really suck if you lived during this time period and never seen sunshine and having to deal with Dinosaurs on top of it no thank you.

GoldberryVideos : For everyone that did not get it. It did not literally rain for 2 million years straight. The climate acted like that of a tropical humid climate. Like you would see in the tropical rain forests. A lot of rain! But not always.

liljoeytraks : Mars: what happen to earth? Sun: uhh it’s just earth going through his emo phase

canag0d : I think it’s pretty rare for a show to have 3 hosts. I would have thought I would have a favourite host or a disliked host in this situation, however I genuinely like all 3 hosts equally! You guys are all awesome. I’ve seen every video at least 3-4 times and I just keep watching the videos over again. I play a game every time I start a video guessing which host will be doing this video! It’s a lame game but whatever lol. Thanks for the superb videos PBS EONS!
