Dinosaurs are a kind of reptiles that were found on earth since 230 million years ago during the Triassic period (a geological period that extends from about 250 to 200 million years ago) which is long before we came upon the scene as a species. They were found on land as well as oceans and some of them were also able to fly.
There were about 1,500 different species having different habits and natures. In fact, the world was full of dinosaurs and they were the dominant species, but of course they no longer exist on earth.
