About this book

Light-hearted look at choosing, if they were around today (!), the perfect dinosaur pet. Hollywood and the media make believe that all dinosaurs are gigantic, hostile and untameable. In fact, there are, apparently, many species that make charming and even useful companions. From Compsognathus to Deinonychus this book advises you which dinosaur is right for you and your home.

Also available in a normal edition.


Dinosaurs for Beginners; Dinosaurs as House Pets; Dinosaurs as Flying Pets; Dinosaurs for Recreation; Dinosaurs for Security Work; Dinosaurs for Eggs & Meat; Dinosaurs for Hide and Feather; Dinosaurs for Zoos; Dinosaurs for Safari Parks
