What Colors Were Dinosaurs?

Josh Welch

IllustrationWhenever someone mentions dinosaurs and you imagine them, what colors are they in your head? 

The answer will most likely depend on when you were born and attended school. 

Throughout most of the 20th century we imagined dinosaurs as drab shades of green and brown, much like the modern lizards that we are used to. 

Near the end of the century that idea started to change and early in the 21st century new discoveries changed our thinking even more. 

Watch the video below to learn more about these discoveries and what they mean.
