The Permian is a geologic period of Earth's history spanning 47 million years from the end of the Carboniferous Period 298.8 million years ago (Mya), to the beginning of the Triassic, 252 Mya. It was the final period of the Paleozoic era.
In the real world[edit | edit source]
- The Permian–Triassic extinction event takes place 252 million years ago. The most severe extinction event in Earth's history, it killed up to 96% of all marine species and 70% of terrestrial vertebrate species.
In fiction[edit | edit source]
- Godzilla and his species, which stood at the top of a highly-radioactive ecosystem, were forced into the deep sea at the same time as the P-T extinction. (Godzilla 2014)
- A Shinomura looking for food unknowingly lands near Godzilla and begins eating a large marine creature before being blasted by Godzilla's atomic breath. A piece of Shinomura falls down a crevice and lay dormant until 1945. Just then, a meteor collides with Earth, diminishing the atmospheric radiation and forcing large creatures that fed on radiation like Godzilla and the MUTOs to look for it near the Earth's core deep underground or underwater. (Godzilla: Awakening)
