  BASED ON VISITOR HITS
The world of palaeontology has changed a lot since Megalosaurus—the first named dinosaur, circa 1824—but two things remain the same; general interest in creatures of pre-history and mind-bending paleo-speak that will make a mere mortal's nose bleed.

Terms like "relative ventral offset of the premaxillary occlusal margin" are no fun and remind us of the dentist. So, we promise to keep jargon to a minimum, and offer a guide to dinosaurs from all countries and times in something that (roughly) resembles Queen's English. Excuse the bad: punctuation" and seplling miskates.

Each entry includes a suggested pronunciation, synonyms, and other titbits including place of discovery, dimensions and family tree. Want to know which dinosaurs lived near you? No problem. Dinochecker's Dyna-saur engine allows viewage of entries by country and formation too, and alphabetically, by type, diet, period in time, most popular, nastiest, biggest and smallest, with a simple click or two.

Paleontologist's knack of unearthing at least one new dinosaur every month has ensured that this site is a never-ending project and we still have much catching up to do, so if you want to chip-in, feel free. Reportage of glaring errors, broken links, unacceptable ommisions, and bad grammer are encouraged and more than welcome. You can submit entries and articles, suggestions and edits using this simple form, or go here to contribute to our FAQ.

Please note: This site doesn't contain pop-ups, pop-unders, pop overs or pop tarts. Nor does it sport annoying flashing banners (we can't all be visitor 9,999,999, right?). However, each page does contain one single, unobtrusive ad which may genuinely be of interest. Please consider disabling your ad-blocker whilst you peruse as we rely on ad revenue to keep this site online.

All Dino's are GM free and no herbivores were eaten during site construction!
