We have always heard there were dinosaurs roaming the earth millions of years ago. These mighty beasts were bigger than houses and had an appetite to make Jabba the Hut pale by comparison.
The word dinosaur means terrible lizard in Greek. But strangely enough the man who named it in 1842 (Richard Owen a Paleontologist) was referring to their massive size, not their scary nature. However, they are both big and intimidating. And despite scientists wanting to clone these beasts today we should perhaps be glad a mass extinction wiped them out 65 million years ago. Can you imagine sharing the planet with a T-Rex?
not all of these animals were out to eat whatever got into their way, take the Brachiosaurus for example. This dinosaur measured in at 85 feet long (26 meters) and stood 50 feet tall (16 meters). It was purely an herbivore yet still managed to weigh in at 10,000 pounds (4,535 kilograms). That’s right. It would pluck the leaves from the very tops of the tall trees using its 52 chisel-like teeth.
