Deskripsi

Over a hundred and fifty million years ago – a span of time so big that it's 30,000 times longer than all of recorded human history – giant animals walked the world. These huge beasts were both plant-eaters and meat-eaters, and there was a whole ecosystem with enormous animals in it.

In this book, you'll learn all about what made this massive giant great--from what they looked like and ate to where they lived and what they did all day.

Introduction

Over a hundred and fifty million years ago – a span of time so big that it's 30,000 times longer than all of recorded human history – giant animals walked the world. These huge beasts were both plant-eaters and meat-eaters, and there was a whole ecosystem with enormous animals in it.

The largest meat-eaters were almost as heavy as a modern elephant, while the biggest plant-eaters were so large that only modern blue whales are known to be heavier. This is the world of diplodocus, a long-necked dinosaur that measured over a hundred feet long – longer than a double trailer truck!

Almost everyone thinks of the Age of Dinosaurs in terms of tyrannosaurus and triceratops, but in fact these animals only appeared at the end of these spectacular creatures' reign over the world. They're both very interesting too, but that doesn't mean that there weren't tons of other fascinating dinosaurs that lived long before they did, at the time when these huge bird relatives were the dominant force on our planet and there was no sign that their mastery of it would ever end.

Diplodocus lived at a time when many of the life forms that we take for granted hadn't yet evolved. There were no flowering plants at that time, in the late Jurassic – there were ferns, trees, and cycads everywhere, but no flower had yet opened its petals to greet the sun. There weren't any termites either, and without all the food they provided to small animals, mammals were still very rare.

Studying these dinosaurs with their long necks and even longer, whip-like tails conjures up not only images of their life, but also of the vanished world they inhabited. It was a time when small diplodocus herds moved across hot tropical savanna, grazing on endless rippling meadows of ferns, cracking their tails to send a boom of sound rolling across the landscape, and ignoring the allosaurus who moved out of the path of these moving mountains of sinew, bone, and hide.

Chapter 1: What did they look like?

Imagine sitting in a fourth story window, looking out at the passing scene, with the ground around thirty-five feet below you. Suddenly, as you're sitting there, a rather mild-mannered plant eating dinosaur face appears in front of you, looks you in the
