During the late Cretaceous period, about 70 million years ago, Antarctica was covered in dense forests and home to a diverse range of plant and animal species, including dinosaurs, early mammals, and giant marine reptiles. Over time, the continent drifted southward and became increasingly isolated and inhospitable, leading to the extinction of most of its native species.
