About this book

For more than 160 million years, dinosaurs were the most successful and varied animals that had dominated the Earth. Based on the world-famous fossil collections and the permanent Dinosaurs exhibition at The Natural History Museum, this new edition of The Natural History Museum Book of Dinosaurs covers all the latest discoveries including the 'feathered' dinosaurs from China. Written under the authority of one of the world's leading departments of palaeontology, this lavishly illustrated volume features many of the outstanding models created for the gallery and includes hundreds of full-colour illustrations showing the amazing variety of life forms that proliferated in the Mesozoic Era - the age of the dinosaurs!

Dinosaurs spring to life from these exciting pages, which reveal these remarkable creatures in the context of their own dynamic environment. From the huge ponderous sauropods to the fast and deadly carnosaurs, you will learn what the dinosaurs ate, how they defended themselves, where they lived and the latest theories on how and why they died out. Finally, the book takes a look at how human beings discovered that dinosaurs existed and how palaeontologists are making fascinating new discoveries all the time.
