GeoJeopardy! Fridays

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because who can't use a little trivia while you're not doing work. I didn't know one, see how you do.

- Dinosaurs -

Although its name suggests that it had 5 of these, the Pentaceratops had just 3; 2 were merely enlarged cheekbones


Scientists believe that dinosaurs lived through 3 geologic periods: Triassic, Jurassic, then this next one

The name Psittacosaurus means this type of lizard; it had a strong beak like that on this present-day bird

High levels of this metal, at. #77, in rocks near dinosaur fossils led to the asteroid theory of their demise

Similar to an Apatosaurus, this 52'-tall herbivore whose name means "arm lizard" had longer forelegs than hindlegs
