LoveReading View on Titanosaur Prehistoric Beasts Uncovered - The Giant Earth Shaking Dinosaur

As of 2018, about 50 species of titanosaurs have been discovered but the amount we know about these giant creatures is expanding all the time thanks to the work of palaeontologists around the world.  This new book, part of the Prehistoric Beasts Uncovered series, is filled with fascinating information and some wonderful photographs of titanosaur bones but its descriptions of the detective work that goes on in the laboratory will also inspire young readers. Did you know for example that it’s possible to work out the body temperature of a dinosaur by examining the atoms that make up its eggshell? Or that by using new LIDAR techniques, scientists have been able to work out the walking speed of titanosaurs? As well as firing their imaginations this book could well encourage young readers to study STEM subjects at school and follow experts such as Kristi Curry Rogers, whose work is featured, into palaeontology. ~ Andrea Reece

A Piece of Passion from Publisher Ruth Owen:  I love science and I love dinosaurs – so it was a fantastic opportunity to work with author and palaeontologist, Dougal Dixon, to create and publish our new series. It was also fascinating to work with the artists, from around the world, who created the life-like 3D artworks of the animals featured in the series. Every year new fossil discoveries are made, or advancements in technology allow us to gather more evidence from bones that were dug from the ground decades ago. This means the books are just jam-packed with the latest information on these incredible animals. From seeing T. rex skin for the first time, to an investigation that recreated T. rex’s sinister, blood-curdling sounds, I was learning new things every day. I didn’t want the project to end and I hope that readers have as much fun reading the books as we did making them!

The Prehistoric Beast Uncovered series includes;

Tyrannosaurus Rex - King of the Dinosaurs

Megaladon - The Largest Shark That Ever Lived

Triceratops - The Dinosaur Built to Do Battle

Titanosaur - The Giant Earth Shaking Dinosaur


Titanosaur Prehistoric Beasts Uncovered - The Giant Earth Shaking Dinosaur Synopsis

Think you know everything there is to know about the Titanosaurs? Think again! How big was Dreadnoughtus one of the largest dinosaurs to ever live? Why did some of these giant animals need armour? And where in the world did scientists discover thousands of Titanosaur eggs and almost 400 nests? Drawing on the latest research and most recent discoveries worldwide, this fantastic new book uncovers and explores the lives of some truly ground-shaking prehistoric giants.

Readers will get to indulge their love of prehistoric animals with page after page of specially commissioned artworks, diagrams and facts. Each book also contains a Behind the Facts section where readers can discover how paleontologists and other scientists discovered the information featured in the book. From digging up fossils in scorching deserts to creating CGI reconstructions, each book will bring STEM to life for young readers, showing just how science, maths and technology are helping us uncover the world of prehistoric beasts!
