Dinosaurs were discovered in the early 1800s. The name Dinosaur means terrible lizard. Since that time,many new ideas have replaced the old theories. One such theory is that scientist thought dinosaurs were slow moving with the tails dragging the ground. Actually dinosaurs were very swift and they walked holding their tails up. Dinosaurs could be found in the air, in the water, or on the land. Dinosaurs were either meat-eaters or plant-eaters.
