The climate in prehistoric times could be quite unforgiving. When the giant volcanos erupted, dinosaurs did not know to run away. If they were busy fighting the hot lava would cover them. When the lava covered them, it preserved the way they looked. That is how we know how to make dinosaur coloring pages. Scientists that study lava, tar, and fossils can make many animal coloring pages from their molds and re-creations. When we use free printable coloring pages, we are using the images that scientists believe are the features of these animals.
We hope you enjoy coloring your page that you have selected! Remember to check out more of our Reptile Coloring Pages and share them with your friends. If you are a parent or a teacher, print as many as you'd like and use them for extra practice and fun activities!
