Evolving and diversifying rapidly, dinosaurs dominated the Earth for more than 150 million years. Encounter the "terrible lizards" in all their glory, whether agile pack-hunters, bony-plated beasts, or tiny hatchlings. Also, discover how some dinosaurs evolved into birds, thus surviving the ultimate calamity—mass extinction.
