Bigger Than T. Rex; The Discovery of Gigantosaurus: The Biggest Meat-Eating Dinosaur Ever Found (USED)

product image
$3.99
In 1993, a giant bone was discovered by an amateur fossil hunter in the
badlands of central Argentina. The two paleontologists who were summoned to the
site thought it was the thigh of a plant-eating dinosaur, but further
examination showed it to be the shin of a previously unknown species of
predatory dinosaur. "Bigger Than T-Rex" is an account of the excavation of
the fossil and the subsequent reconstruction of a dinosaur thought to have been
bigger, heavier, and fiercer than the reigning "king" of the meat-eaters,
"Tyrannosaurus rex." In clear, easy-to-follow language, dinosaur expert
Don Lessem explains how the scientists drew conclusions about the size and
habits of the new species, how they came to give it its
name- "Giganotosaurus" -and how it compared to other dinosaurs. Illustrated
with color photographs of the excavation and meticulously painted
reconstructions of "Giganotosaurus" and other species, here is
up-to-the-minute news about dinosaur discoveries for dinophiles of all ages.
