Sample text

L eptoceratops was a tiny, distant cousin of Triceratops. Since its front legs were so much shorter than its back legs, some scientists think it may have run on its long hind limbs. Leptoceratops was a small dinosaur. When it was fully grown, it measured only six feet long and weighed about 120 pounds. M aiasaura mothers laid their eggs in nests built of leaves and other plant matter. They brought food to their babies and protected them until they were big enough to leave the nest. Maiasaura was a hadrosaur, which is a group of dinosaurs that had flat beaks.

X enotarsosaurus was only recently discovered. The part of it that was most complete was a fossil leg. It was four feet long with an odd pattern of ankle bones. They were fused together, unlike the ankles of most other dinosaurs. Xenotarsosaurus was a meat eater that walked on two legs, and was probably a swift runner. It may have been a distant cousin of Tyrannosaurus rex. Y angchuanosaurus was a two-legged hunter. Its large jaws held sawedged, daggerlike fangs for biting and holding its prey.

But in one sense dinosaurs are not extinct at all, because their genetic material lives on in birds. In fact, some dinosaur scientists now consider that birds are dinosaurs! We always want to say why something became extinct even though we almost never know for sure. Scientists have many different ideas about why the dinosaurs became extinct. The most exciting idea is that a comet or asteroid —maybe as large as six miles wide— smashed into the earth 65 million years ago. The impact would have formed a crater 100 miles across.
