Plateosaurus (meaning 'flat lizard') is a dinosaur that lived during the Late Triassic period, around 216 to 199 million years ago in what is now Europe.
Plateosaurus was one of the first dinosaurs formally named, it was first discovered in 1834 but not described until three years later because at the time
it the find was poorly known and impossible to identify as a dinosaur.
Kids love to color Dinosaurs and imagine what they looked like millions of years ago. Dinosaur coloring pages are a great way to teach early earth history.
