Were dinosaurs herbivores carnivores or omnivores?
Were more dinosaurs herbivores plants eaters carnivores meat eaters or omnivores eating both plants and meat?
There are dinosaurs in all three categories. Dinosaurs were an incredibly diverse group of animals. However, there are far fewer varieties of dinosaur omnivores than either herbivores or carnivores. For example: Two Herbivorous Dinosaurs: Triceratops and Ankylosaurus Two Carnivorous Dinosaurs: Tyrannosaurus Rex and Allosaurus Two Omnivorous Dinosaurs: Ornithomimus and Heterodontosaurus
There are three dietary groups that dinosaurs can go into: herbivores (plant eaters), carnivores (meat eaters), and omnivores (dinosaurs that ate both plants and animals). Herbivores include Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops. Carnivores include T-rex, Allosaurus, and Velociraptor. Omnivores included Oviraptors and Ornithomimosaurs.
