Tremble in terror as the strongest, fastest, largest, and strangest prehistoric creatures roar back to life as you've never seen them before.
From the biggest teeth to the longest claws, Super Dinosaur Encyclopedia uses jaw-dropping new lifelike images to bring you face-to-face with the most fearsome creatures that ever stalked the Earth. You'll get up close and personal with the deadly Dakotaraptor's killer claws, see an armored Stegosaurus fight off foes with its spiked tail, and look through the crushing jaws of the all-powerful T-rex.
Alongside the amazing images, Super Dinosaur Encyclopedia is packed with incredible facts about these extraordinary creatures.
