Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs were a large group of reptiles. They roamed the earth over 200 million years ago. There were many types of dinosaurs. Many of the dinosaurs had either two or four legs. Some had arms. There were birds that were believed to be dinosaurs.

The biggest dinosaur was called the Dreadnoughtus. Its tail was 30 feet long. It weighed 65 tons. That is about the weight of a space shuttle. Bones of this dinosaur were found.

Flying beasts were found millions of years ago. They were not dinosaurs. They were flying reptiles. One of these reptiles was called the Pterosaur. They did not have feathers like birds. They had skin over their wings. They would eat fish.

The diet of the dinosaurs was lizards, eggs and other animals. Many of the dinosaurs ate plants and fruits. These animals were big, but most did not eat meat.
