About this book

If you have ever wondered how it was possible for some bizarre (and, in many cases, huge) creatures from millennia ago, to reproduce - without injuring either themselves or each other - Michael Brookfield's research goes a long way to providing the answers. As a means to an end, the author draws on a wealth of fascinating information regarding the sexual activity of living animals - reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals - comparing the various ways that different species have developed their mating rituals.

By learning about how animals of all shapes and sizes have overcome a number of physical impediments and difficulties, in terms of achieving the sexual act, we can speculate as to the way in which the dinosaur species would have coped with this, too. This informative and entertaining book brings together the results of wide-ranging research to discuss an area of an animal behavioural study on which the academic world has, until now, remained rather quiet.
