Prehistoric by John Malam


Prehistoric by John Malam

Scary Creatures is an entertaining series investigating the more grisly aspects of natural history. What do we mean by 'prehistoric' creatures? When did they live? What were the scariest prehistoric animals? How do we know about them? This book introduces us to some seriously scary prehistoric creatures, from woolly mammoths to bigcats, and explains how our ancestors survived along side these fearsome animals. Prehistoric Scary Creatures is packed with facts written in an accessible question-and-answer format. Special x-ray pages enable readers to see how the internal structure of an animal corresponds to its external appearance. The book features startlingly realistic illustrations and impressive photographs. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal educational text.
