The Magnificent Book of Prehistoric Beasts takes you on a journey back in time to an ancient world, where peculiar beasts roamed the Earth and swam in the seas.

Meet the mighty woolly mammoth with its huge tusks for finding food, a saber-toothed cat with teeth as long as your arm, the Megalodon shark with a mouth big enough to swallow you whole, and the millipede Arthropleura with a body bigger than an adult human. Each prehistoric beast is depicted in stunning and accurate original illustrations. Find out about why the Trilobite’s legs had gills, how the giant fish Tiktaalik could walk on land, and why the elephant-sized slothlike Megatherium had such a long tongue.

With stunning illustrations, intriguing facts, and full-color, poster-sized illustrations, this is the ideal reference for all the family.
