Description

Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*

To be a dinosaur hunter you have to be ready to journey through space and time. This book will guide you to remote corners of the world and show you where and how to find dinosaur remains, ranging from bones and teeth to eggs and footprints. It will also take you far back into Earth's prehistoric past to find out when, where and how dinosaurs lived - and bring you face to face with some of the biggest, scariest and weirdest creatures that ever roamed our planet. Along the way, you'll pick up tips from some of the most famous dinosaur detectives of the past and present, visit many of the world's fi nest fossil collections and learn how to date your finds, transport them home and bring them back to life - well, almost!

Dress for success Identify a dinosaur Survive a mass extinction Find fossil-rich rocks Dig up bones Steer clear of predators Wrap a fossil Rebuild a skeleton
