I am not so sure....I don't see any significant difference.
May be it's just me

Oh that is pretty neat, scrolling through all the different time periods. I could have used this for one of my classes some years ago.

The fascinating thing was how India moved to Asia over hundreds of millions of years.

Well they proclaim the earth was once all one land mass together with ocean all around it. That alone is amazing how far it spread out.

Yep, totally. The most curious thing for me is the extinction of dinosaurs. Lots of people say lots of things.

They don't proclaim it was one land mass "once". Apparently the earth undergoes a cycle of the continents being one super continent and then breaking up and then rejoining every 400 -450 million years. You can even skip to the last 2 super continents in the model, pangea and pannotia. Very cool.

I had known that before but what was really surprising was it was part of the same land mass as Antarctica and australia once upon a time. At 200 million years it is actually bordering africa with madagascar squished in there.

Yeah it was kinda funny and weird to see it floated off the Asia like that. When you go backwards in time I mean.

I was repeatedly taught that the Himalayas are relatively young and this really puts it into context.

The Africa phase is the Gondwana belt right?
I was taught this thing too but it sounded ridiculous at the time.
