Welcome to the dinosaurs community!

Dinosaurs were reptiles that lived millions of years ago.

The first dinosaurs appeared about 230 million years ago and for the next 160 million years, the Earth belonged to these ancient reptiles. Discover how these gentle plodding giants and fierce, bloodthirsty hunters lived, ate, and if they really died out 65 million years ago.


The word 'Dinosaur' means terrible lizard.

The smallest known dinosaur was Compsognathus, which was about the size of a chicken.

The biggest dinosaur was 30 metres tall – that is about the size of 15 grown adults standing on each other's heads!
