Dinosaur is the name of a group of prehistoric reptiles that ruled the earth for about 160 million years. These animals died out millions of years ago, but they have fascinated people ever since they were first described in the early 1800’s. The name dinosaur comes from the term Dinosauria, which means terrible lizards.
