There are still many mysteries that surround dinosaurs. For example, we haven’t yet figured out what caused them to go extinct—but the kids featured in this episode of Totally Accurate History! have some interesting theories.

Perhaps it was an earthquake? “The dinosaurs were just acting normal and then there was a huge earthquake!”

Or maybe it was an asteroid? “A big asteroid [was] coming down and [hit] the earth…. And then the dinosaurs fell over and died.”

I dino who is right, both are viable theories. However, whatever it was, it had a Jurassic impact on the species.

What may be even more interesting to consider is how dinosaurs would fare in our modern world if they were still alive? Horses are wonderful animals to play certain sports like polo, but how would dinosaurs do on the field? “I don’t know much about T-Rex, but I don’t think a T-Rex can play football with these tiny arms. I think that he could play soccer,” muses one of our young historians.

Kids have an incredible ability to bring humor and whimsy to any conversation. Check this video out to learn more theories these kids have about the dino-mite history of dinosaurs!
