Paleontology expert

Dear everyone,

Dinosaurs lived a LONG LONG time ago. They died and all their skin went away and then they were dead for so long that it was only their bones left and sometimes they would turn into fossils. Scientists don’t know why they died. But lots of them think a meteor crashed into the earth and put a lot of dust in the air and all the plants and trees died so the dinosaurs couldn’t live. And they all died and some of them went into fossils. But here’s the funny thing: Some animals didn’t die! Some scientists think they hid until it was safe to come out again.
