-All dinosaurs have very large bones

Tyrannosaurus Rex--hunts other dinosaurs for food--king of the dinosaurs—has long heavy tail—could reach almost 43 feet long—very large pointy teeth

Stegosaurus—has a small head—two rows of kite shaped bony plates down back—held it’s stiff tail high in the air with spikes for protection, bony plates a protection as well—30 feet long—14 feet high—ate low growing vegetation—no front teeth, had a horny like beak instead—back teeth used for grinding food

Brachiosaurus—eats plants—very long neck—front legs longer than back legs—one of the most largest dinosaurs ever—grew over 82 feet long—42feet high

Triceratops—three horns on head, two big and one small one in front—eats plants--bony head frill—eats plants—30 feet long, 10 feet high (approx.)

Pterodactyls—actually flying reptiles not dinosaurs—wings were made of skin muscle and tissue—wingspan of 50 - 75 centimetes

Brontosaurus—could grow over 80 feet long—very long neck known for eating leaves off trees and shrubs—has one of the smallest brains of any dinosaur—eyes and nostrils located on top of head—small head and small mouth

*Most dinosaurs ate plants while very few ate other dinosaurs (meat), turtles or eggs, etc.
