5 Facts About Dinosaurs You Will Be Shocked To Find Out

There are 700 species of dinosaurs

There are over 340 breeds of dog in the world now, and over 100 breeds of cats.  There are also 36 separate species of cats like lions, tigers, etc., in all.  How crowded dinosaurs?  There were over 700 different species, including 300 genera and not including bird species or species found in the sea.  Bear in mind that the fossil record is incomplete and we continue to discover new dinosaurs every year and you can safely say there are "over 700".  That's some amazing diversity in life. When we take a look at dinosaurs, it becomes easy to forget when these other creatures were walking.

Megalosaurus

With so many different dinosaur species there should be. The first was the megalosaurus, the first dinosaur, in 1676, the bottom of a massive thigh bone was discovered in the Tainton limestone formation from a limestone quarry of Stonesfield, Oxfordshire.  The bone was given to Robert Plott, a professor of chemistry at the University of Oxford, the first conclusion that the bone belonged to the Roman war elephant, and after a period of time it was found that it belonged to dinosaurs.

Were dinosaurs warm-blooded?

Mammals and dinos lived for a long time

Although dinosaurs ruled Earth long before the rise of mammals, they were not exclusive and detached in time.  Mammals didn't come from the ashes of dinosaurs so much as they just played the second stage in the reign of giant lizards.  Our warm-blooded, furry-blooded relatives coexisted with dinosaurs for a very long time.  As in about 150 million years.  If you follow the timeline there, you remember dinosaurs existed for 175 million years, so mammals have been around almost the whole time.
Besides mammals were the primary mammals with fur and claws and all that jazz, but they were still lizard-like in the way they reproduced.  Fossils indicate that early ancestors of mammals had small brains, were not fed milk and may have bred ready to fend for themselves.

The extinction of the age of the dinosaurs

 The reason for the mass extinction of dinosaurs, the end of the Cretaceous period and the beginning of the Paleogene period is a scientific mystery because dinosaurs were extinct while most mammals, turtles, crocodiles, and frogs still exist, as the last dinosaurs that could not fly became extinct sixteen million years ago, in addition to the extinction of the pterosaurs that  They lived in the seas, the dinosaurs that lived in the atmosphere, and even the powerful plants have withered, and more than half of the world's species have been obliterated, but hypothetically climatologists say a conclusion that the extinction of the dinosaurs was due to the fall of a giant meteorite 66 million years ago and that the volcanic activity in the Cretaceous period caused an increase in events  In temperatures, there has been no mass extinction of animals.
