We ask "How did dinosaurs become extinct?" and do some 'digging' for answers! Based on different research we outline some theories about why they became extinct. Sponsored LinksDinosaurs became extinct about 65 million years ago at the end of the cretaceous period (see what cretaceous dinosaurs were around at this time). About 70% of all animal life on earth died out. Having existed for 165 million years, why did dinosaurs die out? There are many different theories about why this happened. Here are some of them: Asteroid Impact A massive asteroid hit the earth at Chicxulub on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico about 65 million years. The meteor crater is 180 km from rim to rim and scientists have worked out that the asteroid must have been 10 km across. This would have destroyed lots of the cretaceous plants, so herbivorous dinosaurs starved and the meat eating ones were left with nothing to eat either.

Dinosaur Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, 231.4 million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years, from the beginning of the Jurassic (about 201 million years ago) until the end of the Cretaceous (66 million years ago), when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups at the close of the Mesozoic Era. The fossil record indicates that birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs during the Jurassic Period and, consequently, they are considered a subgroup of dinosaurs by many paleontologists.[1] Some birds survived the extinction event that occurred 66 million years ago, and their descendants continue the dinosaur lineage to the present day.[2] Etymology Definition The common House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) is often used to represent modern birds in definitions of the group Dinosauria General description Distinguishing anatomical features
