            In this issue of Junior Skeptic百灵斗牛牛官网, we venture back two hundred years to a time when no one had ever heard the word “dinosaur” or suspected such creatures ever existed.

You know things about T. rex: it lived a long time ago, walked on two legs, ate meat, and eventually went extinct. Yet there was a time when absolutely no one knew any of those things. What was it like when people learned about dinosaurs for the very first time? Let’s find out!
