How Come Dinosaurs Go To Die?
My daughter wants to know what wiped out the dinosaurs. Our answers did not satisfy her, so she wants to go look in every country to find out if there are dinosaurs somewhere. She says if she raises one from a baby ‘maybe it no go to eat everyone.’
She also wants to know ‘how come snake no go to die?’

Hmm. Don't a lot of proper names keep the original name? If she's into that kind of thing, it might be neat to introduce her to the myth, so she knows what Atlantis is. I heard eastern cultures have something similar, but do not know what it is.
Actually, some people think there are still dinosaurs.
I saw some out front recently, heralding spring: they were pecking the ground, which means there's grubs and stuff, which means that the ground thawed.
These particular dinosaurs fell into two groups, grackles and mourning doves. A question of classification.

Raising a Dinosaur!
I really enjoyed this statement from your daughter's perspective. As a young girl I always wanted a Dinosaur ( had large toy one tat my grandfather gave me) and a Dragon for companions! I knew I could raise them to be friendly to humans. I LOVE the original 'Dinotopia' book. The first in the series, if she has not read this book, it is a must! And a world we both (your daughter and I) would love to live in! The bigger the animal the better!
