by Dougal DixonI hadn't planned on getting a book on fossil beasties, but when I saw this beauty I couldn't resist. And since this book spent ample time on non-dinosaurs, I was hooked. Every creature has an illustration, and the descriptions often stated why they believed some of the guesses made on the creature's appearance.
I read through the short pteradactyl section, and the short marine reptile section (much better covered in Sea Dragons, by Richard Ellis). But the section I was excited about was the very large one on prehistoric mammals. Ancient whales, saber-tooths, mastodons, camels of South America, it was wonderful.
