The Stegosaurus had a fearsome defensive weapon in the form of a powerful, spiked tail (the spikes are known as "thagomizers", named after a Gary Larson cartoon !) that could deliver crippling blows to would-be predators. While we do not want to get too far ahead of ourselves the author will address the immediate curiosity by stating that yes there are other indicators that the world during the Mesozoic era was quite different from the present.

So maybe there were other causes, such as slow climate change, disease, or volcanic eruptions which affected weather. In 1878, several dozen Iguanodon fossils were discovered in the course of mining operations at a coal mine in Bernissart, Belgium. This huge explosion also triggered volcanic eruptions all over the world, blocking out the sunlight for months, chilling the planet and bringing rapid climate change to the point that nearly all species went extinct. "And on that day, the Lord caused the whole earth to shake, and the sun darkened, and the foundations of the world raged, and the whole earth was moved violently, and the lightning flashed, and the thunder roared, and all the fountains in the earth were broken up, such as was not known to the inhabitants before; and God did this mighty act, in order to terrify the sons of men, that there might be no more evil upon earth."

And the wives of these fallen angles who were called the “watchers,” became know as “witches,” and their skills in roots, herbs, and spells became known as witchcraft, because they learned and practiced the craft that was taught to them by the watchers. At the time, people did not know about dinosaurs, so they thought their discovery, which was some dinosaur teeth, belonged to dragons.c Measuring 50 feet, Liopleurodon was the biggest aquatic reptile, half the size of the blue whale .c Most meat-eating dinosaurs had bones filled with air.

Formerly found near the Asiatic coast of the Bering Sea, it was discovered in in 1741 by the naturalist Georg Steller, who was traveling with the explorer Vitus Bering. Dinosaurs depended on each other to survive. The size of battle tanks, their bodies encased in armor, these were the most diverse of all dinosaurs. Why must it be buried quickly? (If it doesn't it would get eaten by scavengers.) How might it be buried? (It could be buried by volcano or mudslide.) Water helps bury the animal in sediment. (The burial process is crucial.

Winters became too cold for dinosaurs to survive. In 1878, several dozen Iguanodon fossils were discovered in the course of mining operations at a coal mine in Bernissart, Belgium. Most dinosaurs probably were as brightly colored as modern lizards, snakes, or birds. The stunt validated his nickname as "America's Greatest Cartoonist." Specifically, Genesis 1:21 says that God created "great sea monsters" on the fifth day. 1 The Hebrew word tannîyn, can have several meanings, including "dragon," "serpent," "sea monster," or "venomous snake." 2 An analysis of other Old Testament verses indicates that this word usually refers to contemporary aquatic animals or snakes: So, although tannîyn could refer to a dinosaur in Genesis 1, in most other usage throughout the Old Testament, the word refers to species that existed at the time the Old Testament books were written.

Describe the dinosaur, and tell a story about its life, based on the fossil find. Many small meteorites have been found on the earth, and the giant craters mark major collisions. The largest known dinosaur is called Argentinosaur, the smallest, Compsognathus. This all gave T-Rex a much more frightening appearance than the giant lizards in say, King Kong. The Diplodocus has a six-meter neck, which suggests a neck of 13.5m for Supersaurus. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.
