Did you know Brachiosaurus means ’arm lizard’? Or that Megalodon was a 56ft (17m) long prehistoric shark? Or that Pteranodon had a wingspan of up to 30ft (9m)? For 150 million years, dinosaurs were the undisputed rulers of the Earth. Today, these great lizards still fire our imaginations - the names of dinosaurs are the first long words many children learn. 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. Also featured are some of the prehistoric world s other most fearsome creatures from before and after the dinosaurs, from microscopic trilobites to huge birds of prey, from giant parrots to sabre-toothed cats and the woolly mammoth. Illustrated throughout with stunning, full-colour artworks for every featured dinosaur and prehistoric animal, each spread includes easy-to-follow text, locator maps and information boxes (with size, weight, diet and the meaning of each dinosaur s name). Including more than 80 dinosaurs and prehistoric animals and covering a span of more than 540 million years from the Cambrian Era to the Pleistocene, Dinosaurs is a lively exploration of a fascinating world.
