Have some fun this week and create some tasty dinosaur-themed cookies! Did you know that some dinosaurs had different numbers of toes on their front and back feet? My friend Stegosaurus had five toes on their front feet but just three on their back!

@Camdentowner1 Hello friend, I have five toes on each foot to be precise, meaning all together I have ten toes indeed!

I'd love to hear which dinosaur you think you are! Take this nifty quiz and share your results with me using the hashtag #DippyOnTour

Hello humans! I have had a lot of time to think (150 million years) and I'm starting to wonder if I have any common traits with my friend, Brachiosaurus. DippyOnTour photo
