== == == == I don't think so. They were reptiles which means they were cold blooded and therefore I would think they would be inactive during night because it was cooler. some might have such as troodont's and dromaeosaurs been nocturnal so it would have been easier to get baby herbivores or if troodonts wanted to get mammal prey

What was the time when humans were existing with dinosaurs?

Humans never existed with the Dinosaurs. While the dinosaurs lived the largest mammals were about the size of modern rats and were mostly nocturnal (active while the dinosaurs slept). It was not until all of the dinosaurs had died that mammals could risk coming out of hiding during the daytime. The dinosaurs had been dead for about 10 million years before the first primates evolved, and humans evolved from primates about 54 million years after that (dinosaurs had been dead roughly 64 million years before the first humans lived).
