The word saurus means lizard.
reference: http://www.yourdicti...m/saurus-suffix

A creation seminar: dinosaurs today --
http://www.creationseminar.net/dinosaurs%20today.htm

This make sense to me... For some reason evolutionary biologists say most dinosaurs were the size of a chicken

I do not have primary sources for works cited yet

"Question #10: What does dinosaur mean and how are dinosaurs named?

Answer: Sir Richard Owen coined the word dinosaur, meaning "fearfully great lizard," in 1842. In Greek, deinos means "fearfully great" and sauros means "lizard."
Naming Dinosaurs: Newly discovered dinosaurs are named by the discoverer or by the paleontologist who determines that it represents a new genus (or species). There are many different ways to choose a dinosaur name. Sometimes the dinosaur is given a name that describes something unusual about it's body, head, or feet. Some are named after the location where they are found, their behavior, size, or in honor of a person. The name has to be approved by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature."

I was trying to classify a 'dinosaur'. There are saber tooth tigers, whoolly mammoths, Megladon etc. with ancient animals it can get confusing Found an AiG article on the word tannin that I thought was neat and might help others: www.answersingenesis.org/articles/aid/v7/n1/tannin-hebrew-mean
