Synopsis

The Hunting Pack Allosaurus by Marco Signore, Mark Norell

In Abbeville's Dinosaurs series, a talented artist and a noted paleontologist have teamedup to re-create the vanished world of the dinosaurs in comic-book form. Each volume inthe series tells the action-packed yet scientifically accurate story of a different dinosaurliving in its particular time and place. 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. The essays at the back of the book explore the comic's remarkable setting,the ancient ecosystem of the Morrison Formation, located in what is today the westernUnited States and Canada.
