Celebrate your love of dinosaurs!
Each November, we dig up our love of dinosaurs! The name dinosaur comes from the Greek words deinos meaning terrible or fearfully great, and sauros, meaning reptile or lizard. Most dinosaurs appeared roughly 245 million years ago near the beginning of the Middle Triassic Epoch, and thrived globally for nearly 180 million years. Most died out about 66 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Dinosaurs live on in modern reptiles and even evolved into birds.
