About this book

Please note: not to be confused with the 2010 book by Gregory S. Paul by the same title.

Take a journey through the prehistoric world and trace the evolution of the most astonishing creatures ever to have walked the earth. Over 200 giant-sized and superbly detailed illustrations provide a stunning visual catalogue of early reptiles, dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts. Dramatically illustrated, Dinosaurs: A Field Guide brings the prehistoric world to life like never before. The expert text identifies each species – what they looked like, what they ate, how they lived and died. Packed with the latest research and discoveries, this mammoth-sized book (measuring 35 × 43 cm, W × H) is as unique and impressive as the dinosaurs themselves.
