Summary, etc.:
Take a dip with the plesiosaur that's bigger than a bus, race the dinosaur that's faster than a galloping horse, and grin at the big cat with teeth that are longer than daggers. Prepare to be amazed as more than 40 incredible prehistoric creatures come roaring back to life in stunning CGI reconstructions. Alongside the amazing images, Super Dinosaur is packed with incredible facts about these extraordinary creatures. Did you know that the fearsome Tyrannosaurus has the most powerful bite of any land animal that has ever lived? Or that the bizarre Amargasaurus had spines that stuck out 60 cm (24 in) from its neck? Or perhaps you fancy your chances in a staring competition with Temnodontosaurus - just be warned, its eyes are 25 cm (9.8 in) wide! Features on fascinating fossils and the latest scientific techniques will show you exactly how paleontologists piece together information about how dinosaurs would have looked and lived.
