To think massive scaly creatures roamed the earth billions of years ago is pretty insane when you think about it. There are about 700 known species of dinosaurs. Fun Fact: Today the closest thing we have to dinos are birds (crazy right?) Over time theropods, a meat-eating, two-legged dino, shrunk down to modern-day birds. It doesn’t get any funnier than that! So what more could your little prehysteric dino fan want? “Get to the dinosaur jokes, already!”
