Dinosaurs roamed the earth 260 million years ago but
they died out long ago so we know little about them. Here
are some dino facts and dinosaurs that i have studied.
Both one of the largest, and also one of the strangest of the Dinosaur age, Spinosaurus had a long
slender snout, and large sail on its back.
Spinosaurus was originally discovered in Egypt in the early 1900s. The original fossils were destroyed
however, in a bombing raid during World War II.
The long snout of Spinosaurus may have been used to catch fish. Some scientists believe that
Spinosaurus was a scavenger, using its alligator shaped mouth to eat the soft flesh of rotting animal
Spinosaurus'' sail was not unique. During the time period in which it lived, many other dinosaurs had
sails, including just about every major type or group of Dinosaurs.
What were these sails used for? Dinosaurs were, for the most part, cold-blooded animals. This means
that they could not regulate their body temperature. When the whether outside cooled down, so did the
body''s of these large animals.
Sails may have been used to catch sunlight, and warm the blood Spinosaurus as well as other animals

the armor. Dinosaur armor come in all shapes and
sizes. armor was used for protection to keep safe
from predators but the armor doesn’t always work
Dinosaurs had enemies
the carnivore was the enemy of
the herbivore and the herbivores
were enemies of the carnivore.
But the enemy of them all was the
Scientist think dinosaurs died because of meteors. Or volcanos and the ice age
but no one knows
Some dinosaurs ate each other they were
called carnivores. Carnivores were meat eaters
and were usually big in size. Most small
carnivores hunted in packs to combine their
strength which means they could hunt bigger
stronger prey. The bigger carnivores hunted
alone and got smaller prey.
On the other hand there were pant eating
dinosaurs called hebivores they only eat bush tree leaves
and plants. Herbivores had to defend them selves
so they used armor, horns and whip like tales
to protect them or there young.
Also usually herbivores fought for mates
