Did you know that dinosaurs lived on Earth for roughly 200 million years, whereas we humans have only existed for 200,000 years?! Look at this timeline. Can you do some research on the kinds of dinosaurs that were around during the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods? Find out what our planet was like then and what other animals were around.
