Dunkleosteus (#2 Extinct)

Author(s): Ben Garrod

Kid's Non-Fiction

The story of life on Earth through the planet's major mass extinctions. Book two, Dunkleosteus, is about the famous armoured fish, weighing one tonne. TV scientist Professor Ben Garrod makes top level science accessible to everyone, whether you're 8 or 80! He presents a unique exploration of the most iconic animals ever to walk, swim, waddle or stalk our planet in this collectable, full-colour eight-book series, illustrated by paleo-artist Gabriel Ugueto.

Each book in the full-colour Extinct series focuses on the landscape of one extinction and one animal lost. The Late Devonian mass extinction was around 375 million years ago when 70 per cent of species were lost forever. Among them, the one tonne Dunkleosteus, the famous armoured fish with a bite ten times stronger than a great white shark. What was life like living in the shadow of such a terrifying predator? Why did this mass extinction only affect the oceans and why did it take so long?

With an additional 'Ask the Expert' section, stunning full-colour art on every page, glossary and pronunciation guide, each book will reveal a different extinction story, from mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega volcanoes, to over-hunting by humans and habitat destruction.
