Dinosaurs covered in Lone Star Dinosaurs include Pleurocoelus, Alamosaurus, Tenontosaurus, Quezalcoatus, which flew like a bird, and last, but never least, Tyrannosaurus rex.
Lone Star Dinosaurs provides a guide to all the dinosaurs that roamed the state, tells of exciting fossil discoveries, relates the similarities of dinosaurs to present-day animals, and looks in depth at the ways dinosaurs likely became extinct.
Engagingly written and beautifully illustrated, Lone Star Dinosaurs will interest people of all ages fascinated by ancient history or natural science. Young and old alike can enter the world of the dinosaurs and the dinosaur hunters.
