  1. 1)A Dino is a animal from thousands of years ago
    2)the dinosaurs ran about for 90000 years or even longer
    3) yes because they would just of eaten leafs and some not because they would of just fight and kill
    3) a t-Rex can run for about 1 hour or less

    • They are wanting children to dress up. Get some leggings, same tee shirt colour and add cardboard spikes to her headband…easy outfit.

  2. Challenge
    A palaeontologists is a use of knowledge of fossils to get a better idea of how life on Earth has changed over different periods of time.

    • Close Asilah, a palaeontologists is someone who studies fossils so we can learn about Dinosaurs and other creatures who roamed the earth before Humans.

      You can study Paleontology at university.

    • The cretaceous time period. Some of the dinosaurs from this time period are in the ‘Jurassic Park’ films such as the T-Rex and the Velociraptors.
