Dino Fun Facts & Resources

Did you know…

  • Dinosaur fossils have been found on all seven continents!
  • Paleontologists are like detectives who examine the evidence that extinct animals left behind. Those clues to what dinosaurs were like are found in fossils—the ancient remains of an organism, such as teeth, bone, or shell—or evidence of animal activity, such as footprints and trackways.
  • The age of Dinosaurs never ended! Instead, a group of dinosaurs gave rise to a new, small airborne form: birds.
  • Recent evidence shows that all dinosaurs, even the T-Rex, may have had feathers!
