About this book

We're in a golden age of dinosaur discovery and the new species being unearthed are fiercer, stranger and more diverse than anyone imagined. From the high plains of the Gobi Desert to the jungles of Madagascar and the Australian outback, award-winning journalist John Pickrell sets out on a world tour of the most surprising new dinosaur discoveries and meets the fascinating people who've uncovered them. Meet the dwarf dinosaurs discovered by an eccentric Transylvanian aristocrat, the shaggy, potbellied herbivore Theriznosaurus with giant claws of Mongolia and one of the largest animals to have ever walked the planet, a sauropod with a 1.5 metre footprint, in the Kimberley.
