Dinosaurs Got Around

Dinosaur fossils can be found on every continent on Earth. We like to think of them basking in sweatily humid jungles, but some dinosaurs, like Antarctopelta, thrived in frigid polar regions. Some took to the sea or air; others traveled across the supercontinents chasing the Pangaean dream. Indeed, their only living descendent, the bird family, has honored the old family tradition of colonizing new lands. Try going to a country with no birds. SPOILER ALERT: Impossible.
