   If birds *are* dinosaurs then dinosaurs have lived on earth 225-245
million years.  If you don't believe birds are dinosaurs, then the above
would be correct. If you do agree that birds are dinosaurs don't correct the
above to read "dominant land animals for 160-180 years" as they weren't the
dominant land animal until the Jurassic.
