Dinosaur Facts

Over the centuries, paleontologists have dug into the history of these remarkable creatures, and come to conclusions about what they ate, their habits and geographical locations, and what they looked like. Fossils have been found all across the globe, reminding us that dinosaurs lived both before and after the supercontinent of Pangea broke apart into the seven continents we know today.
