Dinosaurs are prehistoric reptiles that have inhabited the earth from 228 million years ago to the present. Modern birds are a single species of the dinosaur because they share a common ancestor with non-bird dinosaurs. Non-bird dinosaurs (all dinosaurs except birds), which are extinct, vary widely in shape and size. Some weighed 80 tons and stood more than 600 feet [120 m] long. Some were the size of a chicken and weighed 20 pounds [8 kg].
All non-bird dinosaurs lived on earth. Some may have sought food in the swamps and lakes, but they did not stay in the water. Meat-eaters walked on two legs and hunted alone or in groups.
Plant eaters walk on two or four legs and eat vegetables. A feature that separates dinosaurs from other reptiles is a hole in the hip socket. This feature allowed the dinosaurs to move straight. Pterosaurs, or flying reptiles, and plesiosaurs, sea reptiles, did not have this feature and were not dinosaurs.
