Dinosaurs!

Contasaurus has two horns on his head. He is the strongest dinosaur and bigger than T-rex. He has spikes on his back and little arms like T-rex. And he fights T-rex! He swings his tail and knocks T-rex down and bites his tail. He’s the strongest ever. He says, “ROAR! NEEE!” He eats meat, so he’s a carnivore.

But some dinosaurs eat plants and they are herbivores, like Ankylosaurus, who swings his tail back and forth. Paraphimosis eats plants, too. He makes noises and protects himself by using his horn. Triceratops eats plants, too.

But Velociraptor eats meat.

Spinosaurus eats fish and swims. His spine is orange and protects him from bigger dinosaurs.

– Jonas age 4
