Fascinating dinosaur bones
The fossils of dinosaurs have captured the imagination of people since their discovery in China. The ancient Chinese found dinosaur bones long before the discoveries in England led scientists to study the bones.
A scientist in England thought the bones he found were from a giant lizard. He coined the term dinosaur. Dinosaur means "terrible lizard" despite the fact that dinosaurs are not related to lizards.
