About this book

An amazing plunge into the Cretaceous oceans of 80 million years ago, a merciless realm ruled by the most ferocious animals ever to stalk the seas of planet Earth. More terrifying than anything known to humankind, it scarcely seeems possible that these swift, massive underwater predators actually existed, but they did - and this is their frightening, fascinating, unforgettable story.

Featuring realistic computer-generated images and 3-D film clips - with 3-D glasses - field photography by National Geographic cameramen, and much more, the book interweaves dramatic scenes of the far, far distant past; up-to-the-minute scientific profiles of nearly two dozen sea monsters; and a group portrait of the eccentric Sternberg family, Kansas bred pioneers of marine paleontology.
