Description

Dinosaurs are not what you thought they were - or at least, they didn't look like you thought they did. The world-leading palaeontologist Michael J. Benton brings us a new visual guide to the world of the dinosaurs, showing how rapid advances in technology and amazing new fossil finds have changed the way we see dinosaurs forever. Stunning new illustrations from palaeoartist Bob Nicholls display the latest and most exciting scientific discoveries in vibrant colour.

No book before this has been so rigorous in its use of new data that finally tell us how dinosaurs actually looked. From Sinosauropteryx , the first dinosaur to have its colour patterns identified - a ginger and white striped tail - by Benton's team at Bristol University in 2010, to the recent research on the mixed feathers and scales of Kulindadromeus , this is the first book to be based on cutting-edge scientific research.

Each chapter focuses on one particular species, featuring a specially commissioned illustration that brings to life the latest scientific breakthroughs, with accompanying text exploring how palaeontologists have become able to determine new details such as the patterns on skin and the colours of feathers of animals that lived millions of years ago. This will be a visual compendium to surprise and challenge everything you thought you knew about what dinosaurs looked like and how they lived.

With over 150 illustrations in colour
