an order of extinct mesozoic reptiles, mostly of large size (whence the name). Notwithstanding their size, they present birdlike characters in the skeleton, esp. in the pelvis and hind limbs. Some walked on their three-toed hind feet, thus producing the large "bird tracks," so-called, of mesozoic sandstones; others were five-toed and quadrupedal.

Dinosauria is a museum devoted to dinosaurs in Espéraza, Aude, a département of southern France. Opened in 1992, it is directed by the association which created it, which is also named Dinosauria. The museum exhibits at least 35 different species of dinosaurs, mounted skeletons or life-size models. It also shows documentary films to the public. The museum collections and rooms include skeletons, paleontological workshops and some other elements. In 2007, the museum received the complete skeleton of an Ampelosaurus atacis specimen, found six years earlier during excavations in Bellevue, in the town of Campagne-sur-Aude. This skeleton is the most complete dinosaur skeleton of its size ever found in France, and is nicknamed Eva aftere of Eva Morvan, the student who first discovered it during the 2000/2001 excavations.
