Have you ever seen a real dinosaur?  A walking, talking, breathing dinosaur?  Of course not, because they became extinct thousands of years ago.  We can learn about dinosaurs today because people have been digging up dino bones.   Scientists who study dinosaurs can put the bones back together so we can see how big and tall they were.   Artists can look at the bones and then draw pictures so we can get an idea of what dinosaurs might have looked like.  Do you want to learn more about dinosaurs? This webpage is made just for you to have fun discovering the amazing world of dinosaurs.   Click on the links below and you can begin to 'dig up dino bones' too!
