Living with dinosaurs
Living with dinosaurs 
It is believed that the first dinosaurs appeared on earth around 220 million years ago (modern humans only appeared 100,000 years ago). At this time the Earth was not made up of continents the way it is today, instead it was one big land mass known as Pangaea. Australia was joined to Antarctica, so it was much further down and had a polar climate, while the centre of Pangaea was made up of a giant desert. The Earth at this time was warmer than it is today.The first dinosaur fossils were discovered in the early 1800s but it was not until 1842 that an Englishman by the name of Sir Richard Owen came up with the term dinosaur. Taken from the Greek the term was created from two words, 'deinos' meaning terrible and 'sauros', which means lizard.
