No, he is not a dinosaur; he is either a dragon or a yoshi. During the development of his character, he was originally going to be the “good” turtle to the koopa’s bad turtle, but the creators scrapped the idea. Yoshi’s only resemblance to a turtle is his strange saddle-like shell.
He was originally intended to resemble a dinosaur and lacked a shell. Thus, he is not a turtle; he was always intended to be a dinosaur.
