Dinosaurs are a large group of animals that have apparently died out 65 million years ago, a supposedly created around 230 million years ago, a group of tecodonts. They are divided into two major lines: Saurishia and Ornitishia. Dinosaurs from among Saurishia had a pelvis like today's lizards, and dinosaurs from the group Ornitishia had pelvis as in modern birds. Of course, what probably most attracted our attention carnivorous dinosaurs, it is Theropods. They are a branch of the group Saurishia, and are divided into an infinite number of smaller families, such as: Dromaeosauridae, Tyrannosauridae, Carnosauridae, Tetanurae, etc..
- Impressions in mythology -
Certain species of dinosaurs have a very similar appearance to some mythological creatures, and sometimes similar characteristics. This view of things can help in studies of the behavior of dinosaurs. For example, Amutt, Egyptian monster with the head of a crocodile and the body of a lion, very similar to Baryonyx, dinosaur found in the Sahara desert and parts of England. What is even more strange is that in the description of the type Baryonyx Walker appears and type Suchomimus probably outgrown Baryonyx, just bigger, faster, more agile ... Maybe it's actually Amutt, since Suchomimus found bass in Egypt. Also, Suchomimus crest along the back shows that he was living in water and hunt prey much like crocodiles, and Egyptian description of Amutt says that he lived to become ill lakes in the south, near the entrance to the realm of the dead. He also said it was good let her live in eternal glory, while the poor ate their hearts and souls falling in eternal darkness. This is indicated by Suchomimus curved claw suitable for catching fish, but also for capturing prey alive. These are not the only similarities between dinosaurs and mythological creatures. Here are some examples: Slavic Petlozmey - Oviraptor Aztec Xolotl - Velociraptor Beowulf's Dragon - T-rex Phoenix - Archaeopteryx ... Also, in many ancient carvings found pictures of dinosaurs of different species, indicating that they lived with a man. See more on the special page on the life of dinosaurs with man.
