Description

For 150 million years, dinosaurs were the undisputed rulers of the Earth. Today, these great lizards still fire our imaginations. Dinosaurs describes the creatures who lived during the great Age of Reptiles, the real-life giants and monsters such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus who once dominated our planet.
This stunningly illustrated and accessible reference work features the most impressive and formidable dinosaurs to have been discovered. The entries are arranged by chronological period, running from the Triassic period through to the late Cretaceous, and each entry is illustrated throughout with full-colour annotated artworks. Each of the dinosaur features also includes information boxes containing key facts and figures. The text, using the latest palaeontological research, outlines how the dinosaurs lived and died.
Readers will discover the fantastic, extraordinary and outlandish types of dinosaurs that once roamed the Earth - making Dinosaurs essential reading, not only for dinosaur enthusiasts, but for anyone intrigued by nature at its most majestic.
