Knowledge in their hands

Kronosaurus

By |

This is toddler number two's favourite prehistoric swimming reptile so far. (When her brother was her age we called them 'swimmers'...thinking they were the kind of dinosaurs that could swim...

Triceratops

By |

Probably the most recognizable dinosaur, this ceratopsian was one of the last non-avian dinosaurs before the mass extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous Time Period.

Microraptor

By |

Like Archaeopteryx, Microraptor had bird like feathers used not just for warmth but for aerodynamics making the important evolutionary link between dinosaurs and birds. They could glide like flying squirrels, and shared the skies with pterosaurs and birds

Dacentrurus

By |

A large and heavily protected stegosaur with large spikes protruding from the shoulders as well as down its back and tail. It was originally known as Omasaurus.

Olorotitan

By |

From the Late Cretaceous in what is now far East Russia, this is the most complete hadrosaur discovered outside of North America.

Gryposaurus

By |

A hadrosaur formally thought to be Kritosaurus, having a thin and arching nasal hump (sometimes referred to as a 'roman nose'), it also had 1.5 inch high pyramidal scales on it's back.

Gastonia

By |

A heavily protected nodosaur from the Early Cretaceous, Gastonia had spikes along the tail, sides, and neck. It also had a large bony sacral shield over it's lower back to tail

Yutyrannus

By |

I noticed the 4yo wasn't really playing with his carnivores, even avoiding them. He only had four or five, and they were mostly ignored. So I got more. They sure make great 'bad guys' for countless dinosaur toy battles.

Pentaceratops

By |

This was the first dino toy we got after he learned to love playing 'Dinosaurs Battle World Championships', either with people (me and him wrestling as dinos) or us smashing the toys together. I told him he was starting to smash too hard, and they really kind of hurt. I saw him coming in for another smash, so I held this guy, horns out :) #noSmashesSince

Diabloceratops

By |

A ceratopsian from the late Cretaceous time period in what is now North America. Only two partial skulls have been found, so many characteristics are based on other Ceratopsids. Two large curved horns extending upwards from the frill.

Psittacosaurus

By |

He was watching Dino Dan (again) and was telling me about the half dinosaur half porcupine...I (we) actually thought they were quills until I started writing this page!

Brachiosaurus

By |

A sauropod from the Jurassic Time Period discovered in what is now North America with different neck, leg, and tail proportions than most sauropods

Ankylosaurus

By |

An armoured dinosaur from found in Western North America from the end of the Late Cretaceous period; one of the last non-avian dinosaurs.

Dracorex

By |

We first discovered this on Tv show Dino Dan. It was one of the first dinosaurs he knew about before we researched together. I had to ask HIM about it!

Amargasaurus

By |

The story behind us getting this one is pretty self explanatory...it's a sauropod. With spikes on its back. The whole thing was quite exciting!

Parasaurolophus

By |

An ornithodod with a large crest probably used for communicating and maybe even thermoregulation. Parasaurolophus lived during the Late Cretaceous time period, in what is now North America.

Tylosaurus

By |

He never really asked for this one, but it was like getting a second cat. His plesiosaurus had no friends to play with. And this one had a way better mouth! (We discovered a pleasant surprise when it was discovered most open-mouthed-toys can be pressed closed for chewing action.

Stegosaurus

By |

With a walnut sized brain, Stegosaurus lived in the Late Jurassic, Very well protected with spiked plates along its back and thagomizer (group of 4-8 spikes) at the end of its tail would be a formidable weapon.

Miragaia

By |

A stegosaur from 150 million years ago in the Late Jurassic with more vertebrae in its elongated neck than many sauropods. No Miragaia tail has been recovered; estimates made from other stegosaurs

Therizinosaurus

By |

A large theropod with long claws from the Late Cretaceous, Therizinosaurus is known from only a few bones including its large claws. Its appearance is based off of what other therizinosaurids may have looked like.
