You might wonder how long ago dinosaurs first showed up on Earth. Well, the simplest answer is “A long, long time ago!”

To be more exact, there was a dinosaur in South America called the Eoraptor who lived about 230 million years ago!

And that’s not even the end of the story. Scientists think they might still find dinosaurs who were around longer ago than that.
