Are you a dino-pro like the Flintstones?

Yabba-dabba-do you know your dino trivia?


OK, full disclosure – the Flintstones may have taken a few historic liberties when it comes to living alongside dinosaurs. The Stone Age began somewhere between 3.3 and 3.4 million years ago, after the age of the dinosaurs had come and gone. By the time Fred and Wilma would have arrived on the planet, the world we be home to some of the first iterations of mammals and animals that we know today. For example, the wooly mammoth would have been rampant across northern Asia, parts of Europe and the northern parts of North America. 

Still, it's much more fun to imagine that the local stegosaurus could be relied on as a trusty fire engine, or that a pterodactyl could be used as a can opener. In the spirit of the fun, we've compiled some dinosaur trivia for you to show off those science skills. Are you a dino-pro like the Flintstones? Put your smarts to the test!

10/11. For the record, Dino, in his first appearance, could talk. Did they ever explain why they took that ability away from Dino?

The dinosaur formerly known as brontosaurus is now called apatosaurus, and the word dinosaur means "thunder lizard", not "terrible lizard". Din means noise. It was believed that dinosaurs made a lot of noise when they walked because they were so huge.
Love your quizzes!

I also thought that dinosaur was thunder lizard not terrible lizard.

I forgot what "dinosaur" meant, but I knew it wasn't "terrible lizard". If that one was right, I would have had a perfect score.

11/11 - and there are 3 I never would have known about, but my son was really into dinosaurs in his grade school years, and talked the stuff he'd learned all the time.

I don't know whether to be happy I answered all of these correctly or worried that I would know them all.
