Dinosaurs are fascinating even though they’ve been gone from Earth for more than 66 million years. They are popular in books, movies, and television shows. Perhaps it’s because they’ve been absent so long that we feel safe imagining what life would have been like if humans had co-existed with the reptiles.

The names of the dinosaurs alone lend themselves to innumerable jokes and puns. See how many your family can come up with. Winner gets a candy dinosaur snack.
