Dinosaur skeletons paved way to the evolution of organisms. Dinosaurs became extinct long ago. The fossil remains of dinosaurs have been found in many sites like Africa etc. It is considered that dinosaurs lived about 245 million years ago. The first found fossil of the dinousaur was of archaeopteryx , archeopteryx was a dinosaur which had its evolutionary connection with avions and reptiles,to be frank with birds and reptiles. Archaeopteryx had teeth inside the beak and they also had feathers in body. Thus leads to the relation between reptiles and snakes. The fossil which was fully found was that of an tyrannosaurus rex. It was not fully found . But approximate 90 percentage of the full skeleton was found. The skeleton is kept in museum for further studies. Further studies like detecting age and other biological properties are done using genetical studies , carbon dating and other paleontological methods.
