The first time we found out about dinosaurs when we were kids, we wanted nothing more than to meet one in real life. Yeah, they're scary, but they are also so cool, you know that they are. And then, we found out that they were extinct and our heart broke ever so slightly. Our love for them never went extinct though, so this collection of dinosaur memes are for all the dino lovers in the crowd.
Of course, just because they went extinct doesn't mean that they didn't leave their mark on the world. We are almost certain that baby snapping turtles that look like tiny dinosaurs in disguise are their distant relatives. And tokay geckos who look like mini dinosaurs are also definitely related to them. And when we hear about the 10-foot-long 'dinosaur' that showed up at a student's backyard, we sure as heck got excited.
