Summary
The mighty dinosaurs were the dominant life form on earth for millions of years. But catastrophe awaited. In what amounts to a geological blink of an eye, the dinosaurs disappeared. The Handy Dinosaur Answer Book, Second Edition takes you deep into the world of dinosaurs---a great ride through what is currently known (and being debated) about these creatures and their surroundings. It covers the latest, greatest findings along with the accompanying shifts in dinosaur theory.
