Extreme Dinosaurs by Steve Parker
Book DescriptionThe biggest, strangest, and most remarkable Extreme Wonders on the planet are finally exposed and explained! This is a dynamic full-colour series covering the amazing creatures, technology, and events that surpass the ordinary. Each title explores the most thrilling and awesome occurrences of a specific topic, with exciting tales of the natural world, scientific discovery, and beyond. Do you know which dinosaur had four wings and which could grow up to five pounds a day?"Extreme Dinosaurs" has all the facts about dinosaur sizes, habits, and appearances. It also charts the history of paleontology, beginning with the infamous 'Bone Wars' in late-19th-century Africa, and describes the intense methods fossil experts use to pursue specimens - from crazy body parts like elongated necks, elaborate frills, thickened skulls, toothless beaks, massive claws, tiny forelimbs, and double head crests. Another explores self-defense tactics, like armour-like skin, tail-clubs, and giant horns. In addition, the extreme world of fossil-hunting is exposed, with little-known information on rivalries, forgeries, thefts, and more. From paleontologists to the Giganotosaurus, this book is your ultimate guide to the extinct, extreme world of dinosaurs.
