Were there dinosaurs on Noah's ark?
Here's the answer:
The Bible doesn't say for sure, but dinosaurs could have fit on the ark.
Learning about dinosaurs is fun! It's amazing to see their bones put together in museums. The Bible tells about fierce creatures called behemoth and leviathan that may have been dinosaurs. Scientists think that dinosaurs became extinct a long time ago. Some Christian scientists think that dinosaurs all died before the time of Noah, so they wouldn't have been on the ark.
If dinosaurs were alive at the time of Noah, they could have fit on the ark, especially young dinosaurs. God told Noah exactly how big to build the ark. From the measurements given in the Bible, the ark was more than 400 feet long and about 4 stories tall. The ark could have held 522 railroad boxcars! Read Genesis 7—8:22 for the true story of Noah and the ark.
"[God said,] 'Look at the behemoth. It is a huge animal. I made both of you. It eats grass like an ox. Look at the strength it has in its hips! What power it has in the muscles of its stomach! Its tail sways back and forth like a cedar tree. The tendons of its thighs are close together. Its bones are like tubes made out of bronze. Its legs are like rods made out of iron. It ranks first among my works. I made it. I can approach it with my sword'" (Job 40:15-19).
"Sing to the LORD and give thanks to him. Make music to our God on the harp. He covers the sky with clouds. He supplies the earth with rain. He makes grass grow on the hills. He provides food for the cattle. He provides for the young ravens when they cry out. He doesn't take pleasure in the strength of horses. He doesn't take delight in the strong legs of men. The LORD takes delight in those who have respect for him. They put their hope in his faithful love" (Psalm 147:7-11).
