'''Dinosaurs''' are an extinct order of animals of the superorder ''dinosauria'' which first emerged some 230 million years BCE, evolving from reptiles. Dinosaurs were the dominant reptiles for most of the Mesozoic Era, dying out during the [[Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event]] after which mammals filled most of the niches that dinosaurs and large marine reptiles once held. Never the less, from a [[Cladistics|cladistic]] standpoint, dinosaurs still exist today in the form of birds.
