About this deal

In 1824 Buckland published a description of Megalosaurus, fossils of which consisted mainly of a lower jawbone with a few teeth. They lived during three different geological periods - the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous - which are often known as The Age of Reptiles.

The Age of Dinosaurs is explored in detail, and covers many exciting discoveries of new species, as well a comprehensive guide to better-known species such as T rex. NULL Illustrations and other contents: More than 2,000 diagrams and drawings and more than 300 colour digital reconstructions. He is currently the Curator of Dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada, and an adjunct professor at the University of Calgary. Two years before the Maidstone Iguanodon came to light, a different kind of skeleton was found in the Weald of southern England. His work has been reported on by The New York Times, National Geographic, the PBS Nova series, Canadian Geographic, a CBS special on dinosaurs, and various other media.It was described and named Hylaeosaurus by Mantell in 1832 and later proved to be one of the armoured dinosaurs.

When he's not writing about lonely rabbits or inquisitive bears, he likes doing card tricks, writing songs and playing long games of chess by the fire. This book profiles the creatures who lived during the great Age of Reptiles, the real-life giants and monsters such as the Tyrannosaurus rex and Stegosaurus who once dominated our planet. Richard Owen identified two additional dinosaurs, albeit from fragmentary evidence: Cladeiodon, which was based on a single large tooth, and Cetiosaurus, which he named from an incomplete skeleton composed of very large bones.

Their remains are found in sedimentary rock layers (strata) dating to the Late Triassic Epoch (approximately 237 million to 201.
