Dinosauria – Terrible Lizards Sir Richard Owen  1804-1892 "The combination of such characters, some, as the  sacral bones, altogether peculiar among reptiles,  others borrowed, as it were, from groups now  distinct from each other, and all manifested by  creatures far surpassing in size the largest of  existing reptiles, will, it is presumed, be deemed  sufficient ground for establishing a distinct tribe or  suborder of Saurian Reptiles, for which I would  propose the name of Dinosauria."
