A brief history of dinosaurs in media

Did you know that
  1. The first movie to features dinosaurs was The Prehistoric man?
  2. The animal featured in Journey to the centre of the earth by Jules Verne was not a dinosaur, but a dimetrodon?
  3. Megalosaurus, the first ever dinosaur to be described was initialy named Scrotum Humanum, based on its similar appearance to human testicles.

    The image shows why!

More such trivial here. Contains a chronological list of every dramatic dinosaur movie ever made with amazing and unique anotations and insights that only the addled brains of The Dinosaur Interplanetary Gazette's cadre of astonishing (and astonished) scribes could concoct.

Have fun :)

P.S: BTW, Scrotum Humanum looked something like this:
