A little history about dinosaurs
Posted by: admin, 2012-10-29, 00:00 - 0 comments

Dinosaurs first appeared nearly 230 million years ago during what is now known as the Triassic Period.  For the next 135 million years, these creatures ruled the earth as the dominate vertebrates, or animals possessing a spine or backbone, through the Jurassic Period until the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event took place at the end of the Mesozoic Era.  Through research of fossilized remains, it is believed that most species of today's birds have evolved from certain theropod families of dinosaurs and are still considered the present day descendants of the dinosaur ancestry.

The term "dinosaur" can apply to an enormously wide range of animals.  To date, there are over 9,000 different species of bird identified on the planet earth, all of which are considered to be descendants of dinosaurs from millennia past.  On every continent on the globe, archeologists, scientists and other researchers have uncovered over 500 additional unique families of dinosaur that include more than 1000 further distinct species.  Some were carnivores, or meat-eating, while others were herbivores, or plant-eating.  Some walked on two legs, others on four, and still others seemed to evolve into a species that could switch between the two methods of mobility at will.  Some of these magnificent beasts had beautiful adornments of crests and horns, while others seemed to morph their skeletal structure into spines of armor.

Comparatively speaking, birds are the dominant biological classification of flying vertebrate since the time of the pterosaurs.  Further data unearthed in the fossilized habitats of ancient animals shows that many species of dinosaur were egg laying, nest building creatures, another factor which offers credence to the theory that birds are the progeny of dinosaurs.  Furthermore, since the first skeletal remains were discovered in the early 19th century, it has been determined that these beasts were of all shapes and sizes.  Not all dinosaurs were the enormous beings that we are used to seeing in museums, books and movies, such as Jurassic Park.  Many extinct varieties were of a similar size to that of our birds today.

Although the early Greeks coined the name "dinosaur", meaning "terrible lizard", these creatures weren't really lizards at all.  These were a very distinct grouping of animals which possessed an upright posture unlike those of their reptilian counterparts.  In the early part of the 1900's, most scientists believed dinosaurs to be cold-blooded animals, sluggish in nature.  But more recent research from the decades beyond the 1970's seems to indicate that many of the carnivorous variety were especially active, socially interactive within their ecosystems, with decidedly elevated metabolisms.

Due to the perpetual zeal and excitement that all human beings seem to possess regarding our ancient ancestors, public funding in the field of dinosaur research is only increasing more and more every year, contributing to new and exciting discoveries that help us to learn more about our evolving human race through the ever diligent exploration of the dinosaur.

Triceratops was one of the biggest dinosaur weigh up to six tons. Compared with other dinosaurs of his era it had which had a large body and a small head, this had a big head and was as long as a adult human. But even he had that big head the size of this brain was approximately the size of a human fist. 

Paleontologists believe that it wasn`t the smartest of the dinosaurs, but was smart enough to feed and take care of himself. The main menu for triceratops was vegetation. Triceratops had a bony neck frill that could get over 6.5 feet in width. It`s main weapon against predators where probably the 3 horns. One short nose horn and 2 big and strong long brow horns.

Triceratops can be compared with rhinoceroses and elephants.

Tyrannosaurus or better know with sort name T-Rex, was one of the most dangerous dinosaurs. T-Rex could reach the size of a tennis court in width and the head was the size of and adult. He could weight up to 7 tons. 

Paleontologists believe that this dinosaur was a carnivore and was fiercest by all the other animals in his time. T Rex was powerful enough to crush with his teeth even the bones of other big dinosaurs like triceratops.  This was due to the fact that Tyrannosaurus had big teeth (8 inch-long); that had the shape of cones and were very sharp. His legs were strong and finished with 4 toes; that had heavy claws that helped them to grab the pray. 

But the strange thing about T-Rex was that he had a strong and powerful body but had tiny arms compared with the rest of the body. His hands had 2 fingers that ended in two ultra-sharp claws. Its believed that Tyrannosaurus could reach speeds up to 20 miles per hour over short distances.

T-Rex hunting methods were similar to humans. He was waiting for the unsuspected pray to get close and the would charge over her.
