It is 65 million years ago. Hadrosaurus looks out over the swamp. It has started to shrink and volcanoes are erupting all over the world. The fumes have slowly began to poison the dinosaurs eggs so they can't hatch. Now, alas, he is one of the last hadrosaurus. This hadrosaurus though, seems to be built to last. He is 35 ft. long and 4 tons. He has seen many hardships before, but none as difficult has the one he is about to witness, but for now he goes back to bussines as usual. Throughout the day rain clouuds form. Soon a downpour is unleashed. Hadrosaurus moves to a local cave for shelter. The timing couldn't better. A meteor has hit the gulf of mexico. A wave of heat has spread across the world, incinerating anything in its path. The rain storm though has pretected the swamp from being a burnt land......or has it? After an hour the rain stops and Hadro moves out of his cave back to were he was before. He notices a huge, dark, swirling, cloud from the south. Thinking it was going to be something like a thunderstorm, something normal, he casauly walks to his cave again. Suddenly he feels a hot object hit his head and bounce off. He looks at the object and see its on fire. Soon more, larger fireballs fall from the sky, much larger than the one that hit Hadrosaurus. Soon the herbivore starts to run as fast as he can to the cave. He artfully dodges the fire balls until he finaly reaches the cave were he is safe. When it is all over, life will be much harder for Hadrosaurus.
