About 265 million years ago, it was dinosaurs that ruled our planet. Dinosaurs were a type of reptile that became extinct 65 million years ago and were often much larger than modern reptiles, such as crocodiles, snakes, and alligators.


Scientists have examined dinosaur fossils to study and understand the different species and have discovered many different kinds of dinosaurs. Dinosaur fossils are the remains of dinosaurs preserved by minerals. Although scientists have complex ways of classifying dinosaurs, most divide them into three categories: carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores. Let's learn more about these three types of dinosaurs.


Allosaurus

Carnivores


Some dinosaurs were carnivores or meat eaters. One of the most famous carnivorous dinosaurs is Tyrannosaurus rex. The average Tyrannosaurus Rex was 42 feet long, 20 feet tall, and weighed up to 7 tons. The largest carnivorous dinosaur tooth ever found belonged to Tyrannosaurus rex, measuring 12 inches long. This huge dinosaur lived in western North America and walked on two legs. Tyrannosaurus rex had small arms, but they were very strong and had sharp claws.


Another popular carnivore was the Velociraptor. Because it was able to run at a short speed of 40 miles per hour when looking for prey. The Velociraptor was much smaller than what is usually portrayed in movies. It was about the size of a turkey and about 1-2 feet tall. In addition, scientists have found that raptors, like many other dinosaurs, were actually covered in feathers.


Herbivores


As the name implies, herbivores are animals that ate only plants, and some dinosaurs ate only plants. For example Achelousaurus, Alamosaurus, Axasaurus, Ankylosaurus, etc.


Omnivores


Dinosaurs that ate both plants and meat are called omnivores. Examples of omnivorous dinosaurs include the Abrictosaurus, Ornithomimus, and Gallimimus.


Nomingia

Many people mistakenly believe that all dinosaurs lived together at the same time. This is not the case. Dinosaurs lived during a period known as the Mesozoic, which lasted for millions of years. During that time, new types of dinosaurs appeared, while other species became extinct. In fact, in terms of distance in time, we are closer to some late dinosaur species such as Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops than they are to some intermediate, relatively early dinosaur species such as Stegosaurus or Plateosaurus.


During the earliest dinosaur era, the Triassic period, all the continents on Earth were joined together to form a supercontinent called Pangaea.


During the last period of dinosaur extinction, the Cretaceous period, just before the extinction of the dinosaurs, the supercontinent had split up and different parts began to drift into something that began to resemble the modern Earth.


Of course, during this whole period, different regions had different climates and ecologies, so different kinds of dinosaurs were found all over the world. Just like modern animals, different types of dinosaurs are related to each other. Biologists use the terms "order", "family", "genus", and "species" to classify dinosaurs and indicate how closely related different types of animals are to each other. A dinosaur belonging to the same species as another dinosaur is of the exact same type, while two dinosaurs belonging to the same genus are closely related but of different types, two dinosaurs of the same family are more distantly related, and so on.
