Hi, I’m Kyle Morris. I do presentations for our guests at the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, and I love animals, especially dinosaurs!

Did you know that the Bible likely mentions dinosaurs? Though the word dinosaur didn’t exist when the Bible was translated into English, the word dragon did. Dragons are mentioned multiple times throughout Scripture, and many believe that the dragons mentioned may be describing now-extinct reptiles (including dinosaurs)!

October is “dinosaur month!” Every weekday of this month, you can come back to our Kids site to read about my 20 favorite dinosaurs. I hope you’ll join me!
