- History: Dinosaurs were a diverse group of creatures that roamed the earth for a period of roughly 180 million years, before most of them were wiped out by a mass extinction. Ironically, the world “dinosaur” means “terrible lizard,” however while dinosaurs were reptiles, they were not lizards. In fact, dinosaurs are closer relatives to modern day birds than they are to lizards!
