Written by one of the world's foremost paleontologists, Prehistoric Mammals gives children a rare glimpse at a world gone by in a stunningly illustrated, incredibly comprehensive reference book. Readers take a prehistoric journey through time to visit some of the most amazing creatures that ever walked the Earth. From the well-known saber-toothed cat and woolly mammoth to the obscure but equally amazing hornless rhino and giant ground sloth, a total of 100 mammals are showcased in full-color. Each absorbing profile features a carefully detailed reconstruction of the species, fun text that explains how it lived and behaved, specifics about its habitat, where fossils have been found, and more. A fact file provides important details at a glance and a time line indicates the era in which it existed.
