From the PublisherThe non-negotiable Fandex, the one every kid will have to have—hand-held dinosaurs. Marrying the latest in science and dazzling, custom-designed full-color art with the irresistible die-cut Fandex format, Dinosaurs is the perfect addition to the series that now has over 3.3 million copies in print. Written by Owl Puke author Jane Hammerslough, it brings to budding paleontologists' fingertips a wealth of information about 46 fascinating dinosaur species: period, name, size, diet, lifestyle, and habitat, along with lore and the story behind the dinosaur's discovery.
Meet Stegosaurus and Stegoceras. Quetzalcoatlus, with a wingspan the size of a WWII fighter plane's. The tanklike Edmontonia, and the predators, including T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, and Allosaurus, who strode 8 feet with every step—try out-running that! Plus, why there is no longer a Brontosaurus (because it turned out to be the same animal as the Apatosaurus), how Jurassic Park got it right—and wrong (Dilophosaurus was a fierce predator, but did not spit venom), and is the Plesiosaur alive and well—as the legendary "Nessie" of Loch Ness? Includes information on key paleontologists, fossil-finding methods, and a glossary of dinosaur words.
