Dinosaurs were a group of animals that were found on Earth from approximately 230 million years ago to 65 million years ago. They were wiped out at the end of the Cretaceous period when a space freighter filled anti-matter crashed into Earth. (DW: Earthshock)
On many other planets, creatures similar to the dinosaurs of Earth evolved.
The Doctor, John and Gillian visited an unnamed asteroid which was home to a large, four-legged dinosaur-like creature. Upon encountering it, they took refuge in a nearby spacecraft, where they met Grig. (TVC: The Therovian Quest)
The planet Mondas, Earth's twin planet, also had dinosaur species at one stage of its development. At an early point in their history, the Cybermen partially cyber-converted dinosaurs and on some occasions, used them as mounts. (DWM: The Cybermen)
The planet Skaro was also home to creatures that resembled dinosaurs, specifically the Triceratops but with only one horn. Normally peaceful herbivores, they would attack Daleks on sight. The Doctor and Finney used a herd of these to destroy a group of Daleks that had taken them to Skaro. (TVA: The Planet of the Daleks)
The home world of the Spidrons was another planet inhabited by dinosaur-like creatures. One of these resembled a pterodactyl, which attacked the Doctor shortly after he arrived on its world. Another, a tyrannosaur-like creature, stepped on some Spidrons that were pursuing the Doctor and Arnold. (TVC: Nova)
A previously warlike race known as the Sanctified became dinosaur farmers on their home planet. (TWM: Rift War! Part Ten: The Storm)
Dinosaurs were vertebrate reptilian organisms that lived on Earth from approximately 230 million years ago to 65 million years ago, when a large body impacted on Earth and caused a mass extinction of nearly all the dinosaurs living on the planet. Dinosaurs came in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, with some being carnivorous and others being herbivores.
One of the most advanced dinosaurs to evolve on Earth was the hadrosaur, which prior to the 24th century had been believed to had died out 65 million years ago. However the hadrosaur had not died out, and continued to evolve - eventually becoming the species known as Voth. The Voth eventually left Earth and traveled across the galaxy to the Delta Quadrant. In 2373, the USS Voyager encountered the Voth, revealing that there was intelligent life on Earth before the rise of humanity. (VOY episode: "Distant Origin")
Before the extinction of the dinosaurs on Earth, an alien race believed to be the Preservers were responsible for saving a species of Velociraptor due to their developing sentience. This species of dinosaur, known as the Clan Ru, would be relocated to a new world where they developed their own society. (TOS novel: First Frontier)
Both Jake Sisko and Kasidy Yates enjoyed reading about dinosaurs during their childhoods. Yates planned to get information on whether Bajor had similar animals, as her place of birth Cestus III had, as she was sure Rebecca would take an interest when she got older. (DS9 novel: Bajor: Fragments and Omens)
On the USS Enterprise-D, one of the holodeck programs in the ship's computer was for riding dinosaurs. Riders discovered that while the fatality fail-safe would keep them from serious injury, they would still be injured if they fell off a dinosaur. (TNG novel: The Devil's Heart)

Dinosaurs were ancient reptiles that were extinct long before Human civilization emerged. However, the giant reptiloids of Trammis III, such as the akorec, were often compared to them, or even referred to as being dinosaurs.
This is, of course, a reference to real-world dinosaurs, ancient Earth animals that have been extinct for millions of years.
Dinosaurs have inspired many fictional creatures in films and literature, and Star Wars is no exception. Examples include the hadrosaur-like Kaadu used as mounts by the Gungans, as well as the Gungans themselves, whose faces seem heavily inspired on duck-billed dinosaurs. The Acklay, seen in the Geonosian arena in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, is also partly dinosaur-inspired, as George Lucas specifically requested an arena creature that combined a praying mantis with a velociraptor. The Tiss'shar have also been explicitly referred to as "Therapods," a term for a group of primarily carnivorous bipedal dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs are prehistoric reptiles that in the past dominated the Earth. Scientific consensus holds that they became extinct 65 million years ago. In the various Transformers continuities, this belief is often reassessed.
Dinosaurs' most prominent influence in Transformers culture is serving as the altmodes for some of the most dangerous (and occasionally ludicrous) Transformers of all time.
Dinosaurs were understood to have been sluggish and stupid. They dragged their tails on the ground, and T.rex walked fully upright.
Dinosaurs survived the mass extinction of 65 million years ago and lived on into the present on the time-displaced, and energy-rich, Dinobot Island.
The most prominent saurians were the Dinobots, five rebellious (yet extremely powerful) Autobots, who proved time and again a match for an army of Decepticons. Other dinosaur Transformers are Trypticon, Sky Lynx, and the cassette warriors, Slugfest and Overkill.
Dinosaurs survived in a part of the Antarctic known as the Savage Land.
Beast Wars featured two prominent dinosaur transformers, Dinobot (who was either a giant Velociraptor or a small Utahraptor or a regular Deinonychus), and Megatron, whose original and Transmetal altmodes were that of a small Tyrannosaurus. Later, Megatron used the Transmetal Driver to create a drone army of Velociraptors with Cybertronian enhancements.
Terrorsaur transformed into a Pteranodon, an extinct (non-dinosaur) reptile.
The Terrorcon Cruellock is a theropod Dinosaur, but with a distinct Japanese giant monster influence.
Dinosaurs were now understood to have been quick and agile, with T.rex holding its body parallel to the ground. Grimlock and Snarl are dinosaurs (a T.rex and a Triceratops), while Swoop is a Pteranodon. They form the Dinobots, based on animatronic robots that had entertained the public.
Dinosaur monsters are a type of monster that primarily rely on brute strength, rather than their effects, to help a duelist prevail in a Duel. There are many high-level Dinosaur-types, so the general strategy and most support is to get out Tribute Dinosaur monsters from your hand.
