All About Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs the word by itself needs no introduction, the entire world is well aware of the past lives of the creatures that once lived on the planet and were credited to be the only lizards to have walked on straight legs unlike the modern lizards walking on folded ones.

Crocodiles are the best and the closest known creatures that are known to live alongside these majestic animals and derive a significant degree of relevancy with them.

We are still discovering new fossils every day, new discoveries are rapidly coming into the picture.

A common belief among the people is the war of the titans. However, according to the palaeontologists, who inevitably argue that the war between giants like Brachiosaurus and t-rex never happened according to the evidence found in the fossils suggesting both of these titans to have never existed in the same period.

An impact from an asteroid that hit the earth in late Cretaceous period is the main reason for the extinction of dinosaurs many scientists believe that it may not be entirely correct as after effects can also be responsible for the disappearance of remaining ones.

Some experts believe that of all the different species of the dinosaurs evolved, many species were already dead, and very few of them were left on earth at the time of a collision. The reason that many species vanished along before the crash may be due to a wide spread of some dinosaur plague or could be due to the environmental changes. Though it’s not sure which one is the correct, In the present days, some of the fossils are discovered having radioactive properties in them especially the fossil from the late Cretaceous period.

Fossil evidence suggests that brachiosaur aces existed long before the first T-Rex ever came into existence, and it is also a huge misconception about t-rex that it was the largest carnivore. In reality, it was sixth in the ranking according to size compared to the other colossal meat eaters like mapusaureus, carcharodontosaurians, giganotosaurus, saurophaganax and Spinosaurus though the new discoveries suggest that t-rex was the most well designed killing machine but still was not greatest.

Discoveries of more titanic giants are still going on it’s a huge misconception that people think that all flying reptiles were also dinosaurs, but they belonged to a separate group of reptiles called pterosaurs.

In between those above many weird-looking and bizarre dinosaurs were also discovered such as therizinosaurs the most strangest of all and pterosaur Hatzegopteryx a reptile that was able to fly. Primary groups were the sauropod, theropod, ornithopod, ceratopsian, stegosaur, ankylosaur; duck build was later classified and extensive researches conducted out to understand the seeds of evolution: our ancestors.
