According to a Finds study, nearly half of Americans believe dinosaurs are still alive and roaming the planet. They believe dinosaurs live hidden in remote corners of the Earth.
The study surveyed 2,000 people. About 40 percent of the population believes that dinosaurs went extinct between 2,000 and 10,000 years ago. About 20% of Americans believe that dinosaurs went extinct only 100 years ago. 30% of those surveyed believe that dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time.
Adults were also asked to name dinosaurs. Tyrannosaurus turned out to be the most popular.
The survey was commissioned by Boat Rocker Studios, which will produce a new show called “Dino’s Ranch” for preschoolers on Disney Junior.
