A sudden change in enviroment would probably shuffle a Dino's DNA enough to survive. The more radical change in the enviroment, the more radical the shuffle of the Dino's DNA.
Therefore, there would be then no cause for a change to take place.

But in 1980, Dr. Roy Mackal from the University of Chicago had read all of these stories about those creatures still alive in African swamps. He was a microbiology professor. So he decided he should go to the Congo Swamps and check it out for himself. He went over to the swamps and spent six weeks. He said it’s the most miserable swamp in the world. Right on the equator. 95 degrees all the time. And 95 percent humidity all of the time. Mosquitoes landed on them at the rate of 1000 per hour. Just a miserable place to go. They were there for six weeks. They talked to the natives that lived in the swamp and said, "Do you have any crocodiles in this swamp?" And they said, "Oh, white man, we have big crocodiles!" They paced off on the sand bar how long they were and nobody would believe them. Until 1983 or 1984, one of the expeditions that went to that swamp saw a fifty foot crocodile! Now if you are a pygmy, four feet four inches tall, a fifty footer looks real big to you!
They asked the natives, they showed them pictures in a kid’s coloring book. They said, "Have you ever seen an animal that looks like this?" The natives said, "Oh yeah, that’s Mokele Mbembe. He lives in the swamp." Dr. Mackal said, "Fellows, that’s a dinosaur! Don’t you know they’ve been dead for 70 million years?" The natives said, "We’re sorry, we didn’t know about that. All we know is we see them out there every once in a while when we’re fishing in the swamp."

These detailed drawings could not possibly have been made from fossils or dinosaur bones, since it takes decadeds for modern day scientists to find every last bone of a dinosaur buried underground.
Here's an interesting site dealing with dinosaurs, the bible, evolution, and creationism. It's a bit obscure... but interesting nonetheless

The Ica stones are composed of andesite.
Etching of these stones with primitive tools is extremely difficult.
(Andesite is a gray to black volcanic rock with between about 52 and 63 weight percent silica (SiO2). Andesites erupt at temperatures between 900 and 1100° C). Additionally they have a cover of a natural, dark varnish (a dark patina) created by bacteria over thousands of years. By etching, the dark varnish is removed, the lighter mineral beneath appears and depictions etched in the stones are visible.
The word andesite is derived from the Andes Mountains, located along the western edge of South America.Andesite is the common rock there….
The scientists from different countries were interested in Ica Stones and especially analyzed the grooves of the etchings and the dark varnish on the stones… The analysis indicated that the stones are very old… and can origin from a past, much earlier than the Inca or Pre-Inca periods.
"...The analysis indicated that the stones were probably formed during the Mesozoic Era (about 230 million years ago) and the oxidation covering the engravings on the stones indicate the images were made in ancient times...."( "Message of the Engraved Stones of Ica", E.Benjamin)
The Ica Stones were not seen for the first time in 1960's. They were first seen and recorded by Jesuit missionary Father Simon, who accompanied Pizarro in 1525. Early Spanish reports tell that some of these stones were sent back to Spain by Spanish explorers in 1562, and it was concluded that Ica's stony artifacts ARE NOT of recent age.
