Dinosaurs

£44.99

Product description

The dinosaurs were the most magnificent, diverse and dominating creatures ever to inhabit the Earth. Emerging 230 million years ago as small carnivores that scurried about on two legs, they quickly expanded into a dizzying array of species that spread worldwide. Soon, dinosaurs of all sizes were dominating ecosystems across the planet. The Age of the Dinosaurs had begun and would last an astounding 160 million years, until a sudden and catastrophic extinction ended their global dominance.
This is the story of the dinosaurs. It begins in the Middle Triassic and follows their journey through the Jurassic to the end of the Cretaceous period, 65 million years ago. Through every evolutionary twist and turn, past major extinction events and across the drifting continents, it tracks the dinosaurs as they diversified and spread around the world. The cast of characters is truly breathtaking and includes creatures of all shapes and sizes: from the fearsome Tyrannosaurus and its carnivorous kin to the staggeringly huge sauropods such as Brachiosaurus and Diplodocus; from the tank-like Gargoyleosaurus or Triceratops with its formidable defensive weaponry; to the ferocious, pack-hunting raptors Utahraptor, Dromaeosaurus and Velociraptor, and Archaeopteryx, the ancestor of modern birds.
This ancient world is brought to life by some of the most dramatic and vivid images of dinosaurs ever created. Over 170 computer-generated reconstructions, based on the latest cutting-edge research and technology, show these amazing animals in stunning detail. Steve Brusatte's expert text comprehensively describes each species - where they lived, what they looked like, what they ate, how they lived, fought and died - to provide a spectacular overview of one of the greatest stories ever told: the origin, evolution and demise of the dinosaur.

Hardback in very good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound.Very large and heavy at 3.24 kg, so will attract courier delivery charge of £8.00.
