Edgar Cayce also told in his readings about "huge beasts" and "giant lizards", which lived in the earlier times of Atlantis. He mentioned that the first ape-like human beings, which were living in caves, existed as early as 10,500,000 BC (Cayce reading 2665-2). In the times of Atlantis, around 50,000 BC, enormous carnivorous beasts were threating man in many parts of the world. Mankind did built gigantic architecture to partially keep the large animals from entering a city and partially for earthquake stability. At a later time there had been a gathering of people from five nations around the world, where the decision had been made to exterminate these beasts, because otherwise people may had not been able to survive (reading 262-39).
Huge and numerous gas pockets were blown open in the lairs of the animals which precipated volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in the still slowly cooling earth, and caused the first continental catastrophe which affected both Lemuria and Atlantis; The axis of the world started to shift, which led to the beginning of the last great ice age. Lemuria was the first to be affected while Atlantis followed shortly. After the catastrophy, the huge beasts did became nearly extinct.
Could it be that among these giants beasts/lizards there were those giant reptiles we know today as dinosaurs? And could it be possible that these animals still have survived up to the early times of Atlantis? Edgar Cayce is not alone in this claim, as various psychic intuitives made the mention of large, currently extinct animals, who lived in the same time frame as mankind. Trance medium Daan Akkerman asserted that most of current modern scientist erroneously dated the remains of these animals back to millions of years, it would have concerned animals that lived "only" 25,000 years ago.
According to trance clairvoyant Dr. Douglas James Cottrell, around 23,000 years ago was the time of the Grand Meeting of all chiefs of the world to do away with those large beasts (these we might term "prehistoric") that were deemed destructive and a menace to the earth. These beasts were the reason for the construction of certain ancient underground "cities", wherein these beasts could not enter. He was also once asked about the demise of the dinosaurs, the answer was:
"Those beasts that ran upon the earth itself, that were somewhat an inconvenience to those humans who lived upon the earth at the time. There would be, first: the climatic changes that would be similar to this, but as such there would be the shift at the planets' rotation, and as such, those that would be existing in humid climates - as most of these beasts did - they would have been shifted or put into very cold climates, and this would have caused their demise, but primarly it would be large masses of water sweeping across the continent itself.
Evidence of this would be the caches of bones found along hills or mountain ranges or ridges, in which their carcasses would have been swept and deposited as you would say. When you find them in large groupings, these are not pawns that they have fallen into, it is that their bodies had been swept across the mass of land as large waves have come across the landmass, and they would have drowned, you would say."

Also in 2005, paleontologist Dr. Mary Schweitzer and her group discovered the first remains of blood cells in dinosaur fossils and later discovered soft tissue remains in the Tyrannosaurus Rex specimen MOR 1125. At first this seemed to prove that these particular dinosaurs couldn't be million years old, until they came up with a theory that suggested this would still be possible within optimal preservation circumstances.
In 2012, physicist Dr. Thomas Seiler presented the findings of his team about their Carbon 14 (C-14) dating of multiple samples of bone from eight dinosaurs from Texas, Alaska, Colorado and Montana. He revealed that these samples were dated to only 22,000 to 39,000 years old. After their AOGS-AGU conference in Singapore, the abstract was removed from the conference website by two chairmen because they believed there had to be an error in the data. (See: http://newgeology.us/presentation48.html for more information and the actual report.)
There are certain clues, found in our myths, legends and folklore, that some, possibly small number of dinosaur species might have survived a lot longer, even up to medieval times. The taxon "dinosauria" was formally named in 1842 by paleontologist Sir Richard Owen, but before these times these fearful beasts were possibly already mentioned in the myths and legends of various old and ancient civilizations as "dragons". Large lizards like the komodo dragon still live up to this day, and as with crocodiles, lizards, snakes, turtles and sharks; these species already existed millions of years ago. So why would we consider it to be impossible that other large reptiles could have survived a lot longer than previously thought?
Dragons were also mentioned in both the Old and the New Testament of the Bible. Its original Old-Hebrew is "Tanniyn" which is generally translated to: dragon, serpent, or sea monster.In the "Book of Job", there is a list of impressive real animals which includes the "Behemoth" (see Job 40:15-24) and the "Leviathan" (see the books Job, Psalm and Isaiah). During medieval times the Behemoth had been interpret as an elephant until the French Protestant pastor Samuel Bochart suggested in his "Hierozoicon" (1663) that it could be a hippopotamus, and remained the most common interpretation so far. The suggestion of a dinosaur has only arisen in relatively modern times. The scarce description of the behemoth is that of a huge grass eating animal, like a sauropod dinosaur like the Diplodocus. The Leviathan is described as a powerful serpent-like sea creature with limbs, which could refer to the Plesiosaur or the more fearful looking Mosasaur, both huge prehistoric sea creatures. Interestingly enough, Daan Akkerman's readings mention that the story in the "Book of Job" took place during the even older pre-Atlantean times of Lemuria (900,000 BC to 250,000 BC - according to Edgar Cayce).
Among the apocrypha, there is the story of "Bel and the Dragon", where the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar kept a great dragon in the temple of the (false) diety Bel. This dragon might have looked like the animal which is now known as the "mushhushshu", which was depicted in ancient Babylon art for centuries, and also was shown at walls of the "Ishtar Gate" from Babylon. (See the chapter: "Legendary Creatures".)
During the 1500s, Spanish Conquistadors brought back stories that there were stones with strange creatures carved on them found in a cave near Ica, Peru. They were believed to be ceremonial burial stones from the Nazca culture. Some of the stones were even brought back to Spain. In his work: "Relacion de antique dades d'este reyno del Peru", Indian chronicler Juan de Santa Cruz Pachucuti Llamgui already wrote in the year 1571 about these strange engraved stones from Ica, long before the very first remains of a dinosaur were recognized in the early 19th century. These stones were called "Manco" and were found in the "Kingdom of Chperu" tomb in Chinchayunga.
The Ica stones were popularized in 1970 by Dr. Javier Cabrera, a Peruvian medical doctor who received an engraved stone as a birthday gift. In thrity-five years, he had collected over 11,000 engraved stones. The clearly illustrated andesite stones are depicting humans, dinosaurs (of the Jurassic type), even humans riding and fighting with dinosaurs, advanced technology like telescopes, maps of the earth (including what very much looks like the lost continent of Atlantis), ritual and sexual depictions, and more.
Dr. Javier asserted that he had found most of the stones within a certain cave. He would also have collected many stones from a farmer named Basilio Uschuya, who admitted however that he made these artifacts himself to sell them as souvenirs. Unfortunately, this incident caused much damage to the credibility of these stones.
Research has shown that erosion of the images on the stone was minimal, therefore it is believed by many they couldn't be very old. However, the oxidisation in the carvings of one of the Ica stones has been dated to at least 55,000 years old, which places its origins right within the time frame given by Edgar Cayce when dinosaurs still would have roamed on the earth and co-existed with man.

1944 in Acámbaro, Mexico, there
had been found several thousands of small ceramic figurines in
the form of dinosaurs, and humans riding them. They
are generally regarded as a hoax, because it was rumoured that these
kind of figures where still being made by traditional artists in more
recent and modern times. Though, this does not exclude the possiblity
that these kind of figures could be based on much older ones. It
is often said that there is no reliable evidence for the validity of
these figures as actual ancient artifacts. In
1955, outcomes of radio-carbon dating of these figures in New Jersey
showed an age between 1,600 BC and 1,110 CE. More surprisingly, an
additional 18 pieces were dated by the University of Pennsylvania at
around 2,500 BC. (Source: http://mexicanarcheology.tripod.com)
At the ruins of an ancient Buddhist temple called Ta Prohm, near Angkor Wat in Cambodia, there is a certain stone relief depicting humans, various animals and what seems to be mythological creatures. Around these animals we can see decorations that may represent cycles of creation, possible related to the evolution of these animals. Among these animals, there is one particular animal which seems to have plates on his back, just like a stegosaurus.
However, the head of the animal is too large for any kind of stegosaurus that we know of today, as all known species of Stegosauria actually had a proportionally small head. Some assume that these plates are part of the surrounding ornaments, but this does not seem to be the case as the forms of these plates are actually similar to those of a stegosaurus and do not fully match the shapes of the ornaments, and also, these kind of plates or ornaments are missing in the depictions if the animals above and below the stegosaurus.
Apart from the plates, the animal looks somewhat like a rhinocerus instead, especially the Sumatran rhinocerus because of its short horn. The rhinocerus however, always has a very thin and short tail, unlike the thick tail in the pictures above. Because of the large head, the heavy build and the seemingly absence of a horn, it also shares some characteristics of the toxodon, which was a mammal which looked like a rhino without a horn, that according to archaeology became extinct at the end of the Pleistocene, which was around 12,000 years ago. But like the rhinocerus, the toxodon also had a thin and short tail. Whether it depicts a stegosaurus or not, it seems to depict some kind of prehistoric, now extinct animal.
There is also another creature above this being which looks like another, two-legged dinosaur. (See s8int.com and www.genesispark.com for more information about dinosaurs in old literature, art and history.)
