Dino's Diner

I found this place called Dino's Diner when I was searching for dinosaur restaurants. The cool, weird thing is its a dino place and its on Dewey Ave. I couldn't find out much about this place except its in Rochester, NY.

I'm calling out to all my readers to see if you may know anything about this place i.e. pictures, stories of your own experience, what's on the menu, ect.

My Thoughts......Dinosaur DVDs

This is a DVD about a man who travels back in time to bring the extinct animals back with him to give them a second chance of life. They put the dinosaurs in a holding pen until their new home is done. It teaches you about how the dinosaurs lived back then and how they might live today.

Jurassic Park is a good movie to show you how dinosaurs fight for survival. It also shows you how hard it would be for us if they were alive with us still today.

Here is another Jurassic Park DVD that has 25 people going to an mysterious island to capture dinosaurs. There are 4 people who try to stop the others from capturing the dinosaurs and putting them in a zoo. But the one dinosaur they were able to capture, broke free and rampaged through the city.

Deinosuchus the super alligator

The Deinosuchus roamed in the United States from New Jersey to Montana during the Upper Cretaceous Period. It liked coastal marshlands and swamps. Deinosuchus is the biggest alligator also known as the super crocodile.  It's as big as a one school bus and as long two school buses. (It is 40 feet long.) Deinosuchus's tooth is as big as a truck tire and it's head is as long a dinning room table. Deinosuchus and all alligators and crocodiles do the death roll to kill their prey. It was a carnivore and a scavenger. When an unsuspecting dinosaur was taking a drink from the water were Deinosuchus lived, he would bite down on the dinosaur and drag him underwater and drown him. When the salty ocean waters made their way inland and flooded the marshlands and swamps, the Deinosuchus were unable to adapt to their new environment.  The Super Crocodile Deinosuchus went extinct.
