Welcome to When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This eighth episode looks at The Herbivores. 100 million years ago during the Jurassic and the Cretaceous Periods, some of the largest animals lumbered around the Earth. They had small brains with complex digestive systems and only ate plants. Other plant-eaters like the hadrosaurs and stegosaurus had armor and sharp horns to protect themselves from hungry carnivores. In this episode, you will learn about the varying sizes of plant-eaters. Their anatomy and digestive systems. Why the hadrosaurs used their horns as snorkels and why the stegosaurus had body armor like a tank.
