Description - Extreme Dinosaurs by Robert Mash
Discover the most incredible creatures that ever walked the earth.
From small beginnings, around 230 million years ago, dinosaurs evolved into ferocious killers with jaws large enough to swallow a human being in one go, mammoth plant-eaters that shook the ground as they walked, and strange streamlined creatures capable of sprinting at sustained speeds.
From the colossal Argentinosaurus, as heavy as 20 elephants, to the tiny meat-eating Microraptor that was smaller than a chicken, here are the dinosaur record-breakers. Read all about dagger-like fangs, switchblade claws, gigantic skulls and flesh-ripping horns. Discover how the best-armed dinosaurs deterred their enemies with fearsome suits of armour and how the tallest of the tall stood as high as a five-storey building.
Prepare to be awed by the extreme world of dinosaurs!
