Children's LiteratureThis book features scientific research, detailed profiles and stunning illustrations of more than one hundred prehistoric mammals. The vivid pictures and photographs are so real it seems they are going to fly off the page. The past 65 million years is known as the Age of Mammals. It follows the previous 150 million years when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. We all know that kangaroos are marsupials, but there once was a marsupial lion and marsupial wolf. The earliest pigs first appeared in Africa and some were the size of cows. Detailed profiles of the mammals include fossil findings, range maps, comparisons and timelines. A glossary, index and list of museums are also included for additional resources. This book is a great reference for reports or for students just wanting to learn more about animals of the prehistoric time period. 2004, National Geographic Society, Ages 10 to 13.
