Dinosaurs in ASCII Text Art

Source

Dinosaurs are big in history, literally in most cases.

My sister created a brontosaurus for the school Science Fair many years ago. That was the nearest I had ever been to a dinosaur or any fossils. Dinosaurs were interesting but not something I thought about a lot. I was more interested in prehistoric people, than the animals around at the time.

Prehistoric ASCII art is another thing. I like seeing the dinosaurs created in text art. When we really have so little information to tell us what the dinosaurs really looked like. The latest update is that dinosaurs may have been feathered. They may even have been very colourful.

So, when creating a dinosaur in ASCII art you can stretch your imagination a little. How would they have moved and then stood still? Did they have eggs or live young? Should you create them as a pack or were they more likely to be loners? Just finding a few fossils can't give you the whole picture. So, as much as we base the ASCII art dinosaurs on what we do know, there is still enough we don't know to make them interesting.

As you look at this collection (gallery) of dinosaurs in ASCII art, think of them not as lines on a page but real creatures who lived, breathed, ate, slept and were much more colourful and lively than we will ever know from the fossils that remain from them.
