Large Invertebrates
Fossils of marine invertebrates tell us about the age and characteristics of the Mesozoic oceans. Invertebrates were abundant in the oceans, and they kept changing, evolving every few millions of years to become different distinct species. If we know the time when a particular species lived, then we can date other fossils we find with them.
