Read this http://www.triskelle.eu/history/creationofire... dex=060.010.005 This says that the last landbridges between Ireland and Britain dispareared around the same time that the first humans came to Ireland. Dinosaurs have been found in Britain. Therefore, if Ireland and Britain were connected at the time of the dinosaurs, and Britain was over water (the two countries are at roughly the same level), then why couldn't dinosaurs have lived in Ireland? Has one of my all-time dreams come true?

true.Of couse dinosaurs lived there,after all,if humans live their after only a short periodbn on earth then theres no reason why dinosaurs which were around for 170 million years didn't.

This is really exciting! These are the kind of threads we need. I don't think there is any way of arguing against this!

Yes,all the "vs" threads were taking over the forum,thats why im glad that now there are more informative threads here.There is no way of arguing,even a non dino believer has to believe it imo.

400 neornithian bird species live in ireland!!! XD
By da way, mesozoic dinosaurs lived in ireland

Cretaceous ireland was a little arcipelago... so small and medium dinosaurs could had been lived in ireland... DONT EXPECT a 15 m tyrannosaurid lived in ireland!
Given dat mesozoic ireland was similar 2 mesozoic italy, i guess small mesozoic dinosaurs could had been lived in such islands...somethin small like scipionyx, "saltriosaurus", ornithodods and sauropods. Mesozoic dinosaurs lived even in smaller islands like sicily

Thank you Big Al! Thank you! Now if I become a Paleontologist I will not be completely redundent! XD. How big do you think the largest dinosaur in Ireland was? Can you explain more why large ones did not live there?

Big Al, why couldn't large dinosaurs have lived in Ireland? At this time Ireland was connected to Europe which in turn is connected to Asia which is where Tarbosaurus roamed!

I don't know about Irish dinosaurs, but an Irish lad named diarmyhowley saw an invisabul dinasaur in the smoke in a video from the TV series LOST, and that post at Lostpedia.com less than a year ago spawned a thread that created the [Invisabul] Dinasaur Hed Cult that has drawn one million, forty-one thousand worldwide views--and growing!

and a spin-off archive, forum, and blogspot:

That is the link to the YouTube video which supposedly shows the dinasaur hed that diarmyhowley saw on Lost. If you pause at around 13 seconds in, you should be able to see it.:)

I think da largest ones were somethin like 25 m sauropods
Look jurassic ireland

I dont even recognize it, but it cannot be more than a island: i'm not talkin about 3 m sauropods, but somethin like camptosaurus, and theropods not larger than 10 m

Nice work, thanks! Just one thing, to me Ireland and Britain were connected to Europe at this time, which in turn was probably joined up with Asia. I think that is alot of land capable of supporting very large Non-avian dinosaurs. What do you think?

Thanks XD
Da problem is dat even if they were connected 2 asia, then large taxa SHOULD against their own will become smaller
But what do u mean with VERY LARGE? How large? ANd r u talkin about theropods?
If i wanted large theropods, id look 4 them in asia, antarctica or africa or south america. But not europe

OF COURSE i could be wrong: but im not sure
I think da largest european theropod is 10 m baryonyx
THere is 12 m torvosaurus and 12 allosaurus too, but they r from portugal, and at dat time portugal wasnt connected 2 europe but north america

A pretty large europen dinosaur is 13 m iguanodon, comparable 2 13 m edmontosaurus from north america: was there an european 13 m "tyrannosaurid"? I dont know

Piveteausaurus is an indeterminate tetanuran (indeterminate doesnt mean basal!) from france: we cannot know what it looked like, but i heard it was somethin like 11 m. but given dat its proportions r unknown id say dat size is highly not accurate

What was it's name again?

First it wasn't a dinosaur...
Second there was no such creature.

Have you been at your Horrid Henry annual again?

Please don't retaliate Jake. Just don't.
Also try not to use your fictional dinosaur as a fact. People will laugh at and tease you.
There may have been Irish dinosaurs, real ones.
