The Bristol Archipelago was a series of limestone islands in the Late Triassic and early Jurassic, approximately 200 million years ago. The islands were populated by many small animals, including mammaliforms and various reptiles (such as sphenodontians, procolophonids and archosauromorphs). The limestone surfaces of the island formed a karst surface, with many caves and fissures forming within the island. During storms smaller animals would be washed into these systems, over time ...
