Along the trail of discovery you'll unearth a time when monsters really did rule the world - DINOSAURS. You will find them all in here: Triceratops, Pteradactyls, Iguanodon, Stegosaurus, Diplodocus and many more. It's crammed full of stats, wild pictures, a brilliant pop-up (don't get eaten!), realistic artworks, journals, flaps and even the insides of dinosaurs. You'll discover what makes a dinosaur, when and where they lived, what they ate, why they fought and why they became extinct. Be a know-it-all. WOW! Tyrannosaurus Rex had huge bone crunching jaws with 50 - 60 teeth and could eat up to 500lbs of meat in one crunch. That's like 3 whole cows! Or a Triceratops! Feathered Fiend! The size of a turkey, the velociraptor had feathers, but couldn't fly. It could run like the wind, well a 40mph wind! Wipe Out! The rock that hit the earth 65 million years ago injured the earth with Tsunami waves, fireballs and acid rain. Hello, mass extinction.
