Dinosaurs are mysterious, fascinating creatures that walked the earth millions of years ago. There were once many different kinds of interesting and enormous dinosaurs. They were plant-eaters, meat-eaters, or something in between. They came in all shapes and sizes, with different distinctive features from long necks, to little, arms to sharp teeth.
Dinosaurs might be extinct today, but they are everywhere in pop culture. Dozens of children’s movies like Ice Age and The Good Dinosaur feature these prehistoric creatures. We can’t get enough of them.

So without further ado – here are 30 brand-new and exciting dinosaur coloring pages that you can download and print for free. Enjoy!
Dinosaur Coloring Pages – 30 Brand New Printable Sheets
Dinosaurs are prehistoric reptiles. This means that they all reproduced by laying eggs. The dinosaur in this coloring sheet looks like a proud mother. She is grinning while guarding her three spotted eggs that will one day hatch into three little dinosaurs.
It’s easy to recognize the dinosaur in this printable as a Triceratops. These dinosaurs had three distinctive horns and a unique frill around their heads. This little Triceratops looks like it just saw something scary. Hopefully, it wasn’t a T-Rex.
The Tyrannosaurus was one of the most dangerous and feared dinosaurs around. They had very few enemies and plenty of prey to hunt. The funny dinosaur in this coloring page has a huge snout and tiny arms. He looks a bit like a goofier version of a T. Rex.
This scary-looking creature looks a lot like the Velociraptors featured heavily in the film Jurassic Park. Although in the movie they are ferocious and human-sized, it is thought that a real Velociraptor would only have been the size of a turkey. We still wouldn’t trust this sneaky-looking dinosaur.
The Brontosaurus was one of the largest dinosaurs around. Luckily the creature in this dinosaur coloring page was a gentle vegetarian. He has a long neck and tail and looks like a pretty friendly guy.
This happy little dinosaur has frills all down its back and interesting stripes like a tiger. Although he looks small now, we wonder how big he will be when he grows up.
The dinosaur in this coloring sheet appears to be looking over his shoulder for someone. Who do you think he is waiting for?
This dinosaur coloring sheet reminds us of Dino, the pet Brontosaurus belonging to Fred and Wilma Flintstone. He has short legs and a long neck and munches hungrily on a tuft of grass. Do you think he would let people slide down his back?
Some dinosaurs, like the one in this coloring sheet, have triangular bony plates on their bodies to protect them from harm. Remember – all these dinosaur coloring pages are completely free to print, so feel free to print as many as you want.
The bony plates and horned tale on the dinosaur in this coloring sheet make it look a lot like the Stegosaurus. He looks very excited about something. What do you think it could be?
Even though the T. Rex was a dangerous creature, they still had to protect their babies. We love this dinosaur coloring page of a baby T. Rex hatching from an egg. It sits on top of its mother’s back while she smiles and watches over three other eggs that have not yet hatched.
This dinosaur lives underwater instead of on land. It has a head shaped like an alligator, but instead of legs, it has four fins to help it swim.
Another sea-dwelling dinosaur, this smiling creature has a spiny back, fins, and a long neck stretching out of the water, perhaps because it needs to come up for air. It swims along in front of a smoking volcano.
So many strange and wonderful dinosaurs once walked the earth. Just look at this interesting species with a long, curving crest at the top of his head. Scientists believe that these crests were used to make a trumpeting sound to call to one another.
This dinosaur coloring page shows a creature with a very long neck and fins down the top of its head. It is standing in front of what looks like the entrance to a very small cave. It doesn’t seem like this dinosaur will be able to fit in there.
We’re not sure if we’d want to run into this dinosaur in person. It has some characteristics, like its short arms and walking on its back legs, like a T. Rex. However, it appears to have fewer teeth than are more square-shaped than sharp.
The frills on the dinosaur in this printable look a lot like that of another dinosaur featured in Jurassic Park. In the film, they could spit poison at their enemies, but in reality, no dinosaurs had that ability. This little dinosaur looks like it is probably only a baby.
Our coloring page designers love to bring to life some of the most bizarre-looking dinosaurs imaginable. This creature has a flat head with horns on the side, a short body, and a thick tail with long spikes. It stands bent forward, walking on two thick legs.
This dinosaur coloring sheet features another T. Rex-like creature. However, it has a much more slender body and a crest on the top of its head. It also has very creepy snake-like eyes and sharp claws.
Another powerful dinosaur steps onto the page. This one has a large spiny fin on its back as well as one on its head. We wonder what this dinosaur used these fins for back in the prehistoric era.
While dinosaurs roamed the earth, plenty of prehistoric creatures also conquered the skies. Our coloring page artists have designed this bird-like dinosaur with large wings, a sharp beak and claws, and a huge feathery tail.
The dinosaur in this coloring page has made a friend! Or perhaps it is even an insect-eating creature who has spotted a tasty snack. Either way, it stands up on its hind legs to excitedly meet a flying insect buzzing through the air.
A Pterodactyl grins in this printable as it soars through the sky. These flying creatures have interestingly shaped heads. Claws stretch out from below its wings, which make up most of this dinosaur’s body!
This Pterodactyl looks a lot fiercer than the previous ones. Its angry expression and spiny head show that it is ready to attack. These flying creatures probably ate small dinosaurs and marine life. Perhaps it has spotted some prey.
This sea-dwelling dinosaur looks enormous as it swims next to a school of tiny fish. It might have been big and strong enough even to give the T.Rex a run for its money. What do you think this creature liked to eat?
In this coloring sheet, a dinosaur with a crest on its head surveys the land from the top of a hill. Remember – when you finish your dinosaur coloring pages, remember to post them onto our Facebook page. Every month we pick the best uploads and the winner gets a special prize!
There were all kinds of dinosaurs roaming in the prehistoric era. Some were harmless herbivores while others were meat-eating predators. The dinosaur in this coloring sheet looks like it is running from something dangerous. Although it has a sail on its back, it wouldn’t be a match for a dangerous T. Rex.
Our dinosaur coloring page designers really love printables featuring the Brontosaurus. Who could blame them? This little guy is absolutely adorable with his small body, long neck, and round head. He stands in a grassy field in front of a smoking volcano on what looks like a beautiful day.
This enormous dinosaur towers above all else as it storms through the forest. It is so tall that it can easily move aside two trees standing in its way. The birds and even Pteradactyls overhead look tiny compared to this creature. How tall do you think this dinosaur is?
The dinosaur in this coloring sheet looks a lot like the creatures that were sometimes called “tank dinosaurs.” They got this name from the thick armor running down their back, making these dinosaurs incredibly heavy. It also has spikes on its back and the top of its head as an extra layer of protection. This little guy looks like he is crouched to play!
