From the wooly mammoth's mighty tusks to the huge fangs of the sabre-toothed big cat, Prehistoric Animals brings lost creatures to life. Prehistoric Animals describes how we know about the existence of prehistoric animals and discusses what happened to them. It looks at how they fed, what they ate and how they survived. Small diagrams show just how huge these mighty creatures were, compared to the size of an average man today. Each creature is labelled with the correct scientific name of the animal, complete with a simple pronunciation guide.
