What Colour were the Dinosaurs?

Nobody really knows what colour dinosaurs were. People have guessed, by looking at animals like crocodiles and other reptiles nowadays - this means that most of the pictures we see in books show dinosaurs as green or brown. There are no photographs of dinosaurs and nobody was around to see them so we'll probably never really know how colourful they were, but this afternoon we decided to imagine just how bright and colourful they could have been. Birds are distant relatives of dinosaurs and they come in all sorts of colours... maybe dinosaurs did too.
