Beyond the Dinosaurs!: Sky Dragons, Sea Monsters, Mega-Mammals, and Other Prehistoric Beasts

Beyond the Dinosaurs!: Sky Dragons, Sea Monsters, Mega-Mammals, and Other Prehistoric Beasts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dinosaurs were not the only incredible creatures to live and rule Earth's prehistoric past. Flying reptiles filled the skies for 100 million years. Deadly marine reptiles, some over 50 feet long, swam and hunted in the ancient oceans. And long after the extinction of the dinosaurs, other astonishing reptiles and giant, lethal mammals stalked the earth.

From the saber-toothed tiger, who makes our African lion seem like a kitten, to the woolly mammoth, whose tusks were large enough to swing from, to Diatryma, a massive 12-foot flightless bird who could hunt down small horses, to Quetzlocoatlus, with its wingspan as wide as a small airplane's, this book showcases the remarkable creatures that roamed the world along with — and after — the dinosaurs.

Beyond the Dinosaurs! is filled with over fifty full-color paintings of these strange and fabulous beasts by the world's top illustrators of prehistoric animals. It also contains information about each animal, exploring where and when it lived, what it ate, and its particular attributes. Additionally, there is a listing of the best sites to visit on the World Wide Web for more information about these fantastic animals. It's a treasure trove of information about some of the most astonishing creatures that ever roamed our world.

About the Author

Howard Zimmerman has been a fan of extinct animals since his first visit to a natural history museum at the age of five. Beyond the Dinosaurs! is the second book he's written on prehistoric giants, the first being Dinosaurs! The Biggest Baddest Strangest Fastest. The two volumes represent a lifelong dream he had to create beautiful art books that focused on his favorite beasts from the past. He has also edited numerous books for adults and children, including books on science fact and science fiction, astronomy and cosmology, and dinosaur paleontology, notably the best-selling An Alphabet of Dinosaurs and the critically acclaimed The Ultimate Dinosaur. He also developed and edited the six-book science-fiction series, Ray Bradbury Presents Dinosaur World. Mr. Zimmerman lives in New York City with his wife and two cats.
