What are dinosaurs:

Dinosaurs are a kind of reptiles that were found on earth since 230 million years ago during the Triassic period(a geological period that extends from about 250 to 200 million years ago). They were found on land as well as oceans and some of them were also able to fly.
They had about 1,500 different species having different habits and natures. In fact, the world was full of dinosaurs but now they doesn’t exist on earth.
Among many different theories, there are three main theories about their disappearance from the world.
