These terrestrial vertebrate giants ruled the world for 135 million years and SuperCool Art’s Dinosauria themed Stencil set helps you capture the enormity of their presence. Using these Dinosauria Stencils you can rule the realm of Dinosaurs and design your Masterpiece as you envision the world looked while these “terrible lizards” walked the earth.
Represented in your Dinosauria Themed Stencil Set are:
Ankylosaurus which means “fused lizard” is a genus of ankylosaurid dinosaur. Fossils of Ankylosaurus are found in geologic formations dating to the very end of the Cretaceous Period (between about 68–66 Ma ago) in western North America.
Velociraptor meaning “swift seizer” is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period. Two species are currently recognized, although others have been assigned in the past.
Pterodactylus from the Greek pterodaktulos, meaning “winged finger” is a genus of pterosaurs, whose members are popularly known as pterodactyls. It is currently thought to contain only a single species, Pterodactylus antiquus, the first pterosaur species to be named and identified as a flying reptile.
Triceratops is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that first appeared during the late stages of the Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America. It is one of the last known non-avian dinosaur genera, and became extinct in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event 66 million years ago. The term Triceratops, which literally means “three-horned face”, is derived from the Greek (tri-) meaning “three”, κέρας (kéras) meaning “horn”, and ὤψ (ops) meaning “face”.
Brontosaurus meaning “thunder lizard” (from Greek brontē = thunder + sauros = lizard), is a genus of sauropod dinosaurs. Brontosaurus was originally named by its discoverer Othniel Charles Marsh in 1879. Brontosaurus had long been considered a junior synonym of Apatosaurus, its original species Brontosaurus excelsus having been reclassified as A. excelsus in 1903. However, an extensive study published in 2015 concluded that Brontosaurus was a valid genus of sauropod distinct from Apatosaurus.
Stegosaurus meaning “roof lizard” or “covered lizard” in reference to its bony plates is a genus of armored stegosaurid dinosaur. They lived during the Late Jurassic period some 155 to 150 million years ago in what is now western North America. In 2006, a specimen of Stegosaurus was announced from Portugal, showing that they were present in Europe, as well. Due to its distinctive tail spikes and plates the Stegosaurus is one of the most recognizable dinosaurs. At least three species have been identified.
Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, 231.4 million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years.
From the beginning of the Jurassic (about 201 million years ago) until the end of the Cretaceous (66 million years ago), when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups at the close of the Mesozoic Era.
The fossil records indicate that birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs during the Jurassic Period and, consequently, they are considered a subgroup of dinosaurs by many paleontologists. Some birds survived the extinction event that occurred 66 million years ago, and their descendants continue the dinosaur lineage to the present day.
