This is my first article. I am going to shared about the history of a dinosaur. This is because, my best friend, FARAH ARYANI MOHAMMAD is very obsessed to this animal. Barneys and friends is her favourite cartoon since they was famous with their dinosaur’s characters. Let me shared with you guys about the history of a MR. Dino :)

Dinosaurs are usually defined as the group consisting of triceratops, neornithes (modern birds), and all descendants.

Other definition of dinosaurs are :)

theropods (mostly bipedal carnivors),

sauropodomorphs (mostly large herbivors quadrupets with long

necks and tails),

ankylosaurians (armored herbivorous quadrupeds),

stegosaurians (plated herbivorous quadrupeds),

ceratopsians (herbivorous quadrupeds with horns and frills), and

ornithopods (bipedal or quadrupedal herbivores including "duck-bills").

- "dinosaur" does not include birds" *___* -

Birds are classified by most paleontologists as belonging to the subgroup maniraptora, which are coelurosaurs, which are theropods, which are saurischians, which are dinosaurs.

From the point of that , we can notice that birds are dinosaurs, but referring to dinosaurs that are not birds as "non-avian dinosaurs" is cumbersome.

Here, I like to shared about one of the dinosaur’s type names Dilophosaurus ( Pronounce : die-loaf-owe-sore-uss) which mean double-crested-reptile. The blockbuster movie Jurassic Park featured a Dilophosaurus attacking a man by spitting in his eyes, during a rainstorm.It is unlikely that the real Dilophosaurus could spit, or that it had extensible flaps around its neck as portrayed in the movie.Dilophosaurus dates back to around 200 million years ago, making it one of the first large meat-eating Dinosaurs. It had 20.00 feet 6.00 meters high and 880.00 pounds, 400.00 kilograms and two thin ridges that grew over each eye, and that were each about half as large as a dinner plate. It is not known what these ridges were used for. Some scientists believe that they were for attracting a mate, or as a sign of maturity.

WAHHH. Interesting is it ?

p/s : I miss You, Aryant !
