Types of Dinosaurs


Hypsilophodon foxii was one of the first dinosaurs discovered. This small, plant-eating animal was first discovered in 1849, a mere seven years after Sir Richard Owen coined the term dinosaur.

T. rex

Tyrannasaurus rex, first described in 1905, this “tyrant lizard king” still holds the crown as the largest and most fearsome terrestrial predator ever discovered in North America. Since T. rex is found only in Flood deposits, our knowledge of this great animal is limited to his fossilized remains.


The sauropods (“lizard feet”) included the largest land animals in history. With fossils on every continent, sauropods are easily recognized by their extremely long necks and tails, which are anchored to a huge body and held up by towering legs. How do you support and move all that bulk?


A newly uncovered dinosaur, Albertaceratops nesmoi, had horns about three–feet long (located right above its eyebrows). In the evolutionists’ timeline, dinosaurs that were older than this one had larger horns, and the ones that followed had smaller horns. Hence, evolutionists say, this creature represents a middle step.
