I did terribly on this quiz, but it didn't help that I couldn't spell the answers correctly and gave up. Not to say this isn't a good quiz idea, just that it's been too long since I studied dinosaurs.

I know the spellings are a nightmare, but ive checked and they are all spelt right. Been ages since I studied dinosaurs as well, but I made this quiz because of Jurassic Park IV which comes out 2014, the proof is this website (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0369610/?ref_=sr_2)

not to split hairs, but tyrannosaurus alone would be "tyrant lizard". Tyrannosaurus rex is "tyrant lizard king". tyrannosaurus alone should be accepted as an answer.

It would be good if you could allow for different spellings - as they sounded, my 7 year old was frustrated as he knew the answers (he's a dino buff) but we spelled them slightly wrong.
