Dinosaurs were amazing creatures, so here are some amazing facts about dinosaurs:
Some Dinosaurs Had Feathers!

However, recently fossils discovered in China, appear to
have show feathers.
Scientists do not yet know for sure, which dinosaur
had feathers. Some scientists have suggested that it
is possible that
many different species may have had feathers, including
Dinosaurs were the most successful land animals for over 165 million
years. This is far longer than mammals have dominated (mammals have only
dominated for the last 65 million years), and what's more, dinosaurs out competed
the mammals and their ancestors.
During the Permian period, which was the period before dinosaurs evolved,
the dominant land animals were
mammal-like reptiles (who were the ancestors
of mammals). When dinosaurs evolved during the
Triassic, over millions of
years, they out competed and gradually drove to extinction, the
The mammal-like reptiles leave as their descendants, mammals. However,
during the period that dinosaurs were around, most mammals were tiny
mouse-like creatures, and the largest was no bigger than a beaver. The
dinosaurs were so successful that they suppressed mammalian evolution.
Only after dinosaurs became
because of bad-luck, rather than any flaw in the dinosaurs), did mammals
get the chance to evolve into larger creatures.

Dinosaurs Are NOT Completely Extinct
Most people know that the last dinosaurs became extinct
about 65 million years ago - but did they?
Most scientists now believe that birds evolved from dinosaurs. If this
theory is correct - and there is good evidence for its - then birds are in fact an evolved type of dinosaur
(see dinosaur family tree), and not all dinosaurs are extinct after all.
