Other books byDr. Robert T. Bakker
Dactyls! Dragons of the Air
Dactyls. Flying Dragons. Pterodactylus. Whatever you call them, they are simply wonderful! Renowned paleontologist Dr. Robert T. Bakker explains how scientists observe fossils and living animals to determine how dactyls flew, walked, climbed, fed, and thought. Also included for the first time ever is his latest, still-unnamed discovery–an unusual dactyl with sharp-edged, backwards curved teeth, nicknamed "Snaggle Tooth." From the Hardcover Library Binding edition.
Were Dinosaurs good parents? Were newly hatched dinos left to fend for themselves, like baby turtles? Or were they protected until they were fully grown, like baby eagles? Citing specific examples from the fossil record and making comparisons with living animals, renowned paleontologist Robert T. Bakker explains to young readers how we know that allosaurus babies didn’t have to hunt for themselves; how giant titanosaurs nested in crowded rookeries (and must have walked very carefully!); how Psittacosaurus was a dinosaur babysitter—and numerous other fossil finds, all of which indicate that yes, dinosaurs were good parents. A world-class pairing of dinosaur science and illustration for just $3.99!
The Big Golden Book of Dinosaurs
Renowned paleontologist Robert T. Bakker and award-winning paleoartist Luis V. Rey combine forces in this oversized picture book about the evolution of dinosaurs. From the conquest of land by dino ancestor Acanthostega during the Devonian Period, through the mass die-off of dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period, Bakker and Rey take readers on a safari through time while paying subtle homage to the 1960 Giant Golden Book Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Reptiles that inspired them both as young dinophiles. With stops along the way to look at monster bugs, ferocious fin-backs, fluffy dinosaurs, sea monsters and the 12-year-old girl who discovered them, dinosaur orchestras, tickling tyrannosaurs, and much, much more, this is a journey readers will never forget. It's a perfect gift for young dinosaur lovers—as well as adult fans of Dr. Bakker and Luis Rey!
Dinosaurs! follows the evolution of these spectacular creatures from their earliest beginnings as little fellows who had to evade attacks from giant croc relatives to today’s living dinosaurs.
