—Junior Editor Quit on- DINOSAURS Daily Times Herald Features . . - Comics Friday, November 27, 1970 QUESTION: Why did the dinosaurs become extinct? ANSWER: About 200 million years ago, in the Triassic period, much of the land was flat, covered with warm inland seas, swamps and marshes. There was an abundance of water plants, giving plant-eating reptiles a fine food supply. The larger ones, living half in water, were safe from predators. Carnivorous, or flesh-eating reptiles, could prey upon the smaller plant eaters. Starting with such ancestors as the condont. the dingsaurs rapidly developed. The codont was only 3 feet long, very different from the dinosaurs we show. During the Cretaceous period however, things changed. Mountain ranges rose up draining off the seas and swamps, bringing a colder climate. Many scientists believe that the. plant-eaters could not adapt themselves to the new kinds of plants. As they vanished, the flesh-eaters, deprived of food, vanished too. It seems strange that tyrannosaurus, the ferocious and gigantic creature in the foreground, of our picture — which grew to 45 feet long — shou|d,have been able to survive. But the'strongest animal is helpless if he doesn't get enough to eat. . (Susan Tibbens of Washington, Pa., wins a prize for this question.
