At the back of each volume, meanwhile, are severalshort essays, abundantly illustrated with original drawings and photographs of fossils, thatexplain more about the creatures and settings encountered in the comic. The Hunting Pack, the third title in the series, depicts life in a group of Allosaurus inthe late Jurassic period, 150 million years ago, in what is today western North America.As these powerful predators hunt herbivores like Camarasaurus and Stegosaurus, anaggressive young Allosaurus challenges the battle-scarred dominant male for leadershipof the pack.
