Dinosaur & other prehistoric creatures atlas

Chris Barker

Book - 2021

This atlas is packed with maps of early Earth and more than 40 profiles of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. Stare down a T-Rex in North America. Watch out for Velociraptors' slashing claws in the Gobi Desert. Trek across the Siberian tundra and discover a woolly mammoth. This stunning book uses breathtaking computer-generated imagery to make every animal come to life. Using specially created maps, this dinosaur atlas also shows you what the world looked like millions of years ago. A... modern 3D globe next to each map helps you understand the arrangement of the continents over time and why we find fossils where we do. You can see what paleontologists have dug up on each continent and learn how they put together a picture of the past from a puzzle of ancient clues.
