When you picture Noah’s ark, do you imagine giraffes, elephants, parrots, and dinosaurs? Most people picture common zoo animals, not extinct ones like dinosaurs!

But God sent two of every kind of land-dwelling, air-breathing creature to the ark to be saved from the flood. And that would’ve included dinosaurs!

But how’d they fit? After all, T. rex was huge!

Well, most dinosaurs were much smaller! The average is about the size of a buffalo, and some were as small as chickens. And even the really big ones start out small, in eggs about the size of footballs. So, God probably sent young adults or juveniles, to the ark that easily would’ve fit.
