What's Your Dinosaur Name?

Have you ever wondered what your dinosaur name would have been? Well we have a sure fire way to find out!

It turns out dinosaur names are literally just translations of their features.

A new dinosaur has been been discovered, called the Nasutoceratops, which literally translates as "Big-Nosed Horn-Face".

The Stegosaurus is a "Roofed Reptile", the Diplodocus a "Double Beamed Lizard" (because of the long neck and tail), while the Velociraptor is a "Speedy Thief"!

So what would YOUR name be if you were a dinosaur? You can find out James and Charlie's dinosaur names here in Charlie's Blog.
