Summary
"Are you curious about fossils, dinosaurs, and prehistoric life? Then dig into this stunning children's encyclopedia. This fully revised edition of Dinosaur! is loaded with fascinating facts. Did you know that Velociraptor had three large "killer claws" on each foot to hunt down prey? Or that the long-necked Diplodocus was as long as three school buses? Would you believe that Carcharodon megalodon was an ocean monster with a fearsome bite at least six times stronger than that of today's great white shark? This dinosaur book for kids reveals more than 60 prehistoric creatures, from the age of the dinosaurs to the most recent Ice Age. From the flying Pterodactylus and ferocious Tyrannosaurus to the gigantic snake Titanoboa and magnificent wooly mammoth, this big book takes you up close and personal with these amazing animals. And with more than 400,000 copies sold worldwide, you too can become a dinosaur expert as you pore over pages packed with jaw-dropping 3D images. If you're crazy about dinosaurs and paleontology, Dinosaur! is the perfect book for you."-- provided by publisher
