Part of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) learning series, this website contains dinosaur information, games, interviews with scientists, and virtual tours. The Chronology section discusses dinosaurs that lived from 225 million to 65 million years ago (Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous). Specific dinosaur information includes meaning of its name, diet, size, weight, geographic distribution, and a brief description. Fact Files provides a search tool to find dinosaurs by time period, type, diet, and habitat. Live From Dinosaur Island hosts a virtual dig to find fossils, demonstrates what its like to dig for fossils, offers a virtual tour of dig headquarters, where recovered bones are taken to be cleaned, prepared, and analyzed, and contains descriptions of pictured fossils. There are a number of dinosaur games that portray survival, habits, and features of different dinosaurs. Other sections describe how scientists determine aspects of dinosaur life by looking at their fossils.
