Prepare to forget everything you thought you knew about dinosaurs. Ferocious battles of lore played out by dimwitted, reptilian, lumbering monsters? Not true. IN THE PRESENCE OF DINOSAURS draws on the latest information from fossil records and studies of present-day wildlife to create an intimate account of the parentally attentive, agile ancestors of birds that roamed the earth millions of years ago. Here, in more stunning detail than ever before, is an evocative depiction of the lives of dinosaurs. From mating patterns and habitats to nesting colonies and physiognomy, IN THE PRESENCE OF DINOSAURS takes readers into the world of dinosaurs like a field guide, traveling from present-day Arizona to Connecticut, the Triassic to the Cretaceous. Throughout are 100 glorious, full-color painting by acclaimed dinosaur artist Larry Felder.
