The first dinosaur` fossilized remains were found in the thirties of the 19th century. But this finding was not given much attention. Only years later, after the discovery other petrifaction, it became clear, that these remains belong to prehistoric animals, and that these findings are the most important archaeological discovery. In 1854, sculptor Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins modeled by from model of Dr. Richard Owen to create the first life-size dinosaur sculpture. After that, paleontology began to develop as a science. In the middle of the nineteenth century, the English zoologist R. Owen, after the exploration of stone finds, was introduced the term of "Dinosaur", which means "Terrible lizard".
