•Junior Editor Quiz on- DINOSAURS 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 dinosaurs 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, pf our picture — which grew to 45 feet long — should, 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.
