Description

Written by Owl Puke author Jane Hammerslough, this Fandex brings to budding paleontologists' fingertips a wealth of information about 46 fascinating dinosaur species: period, name, size, diet, lifestyle, and habitat, along with lore and the story behind the dinosaur's discovery. Meet Stegosaurus and Stegoceras (the head banger). An airborne giant, Quetzalcoatlus, with a wingspan the size of a WWII fighter. The meat-eaters: T.Rex, Giganotosaurus, and Allosaurus, who strode eight feet with every step—try out-running that! There are fish—like ichthyosaurs, including Excalibosaurus, named after King Arthur's legendary sword because of its long snout. The swift and deadly raptors. Sauropods that could strip the tops of trees, and the agile little Compsognathus, the size of a turkey. Each dinosaur is illustrated in amazingly life-like detail, and accompanied by information on size, diet, and lifestyle. The deck also includes key paleontologists, fossil-finding methods, and a glossary of dinosaur words.

-50 die-cut full color cards
-Hinged together with a plastic bolt
-Deck comes inside a clear plastic box with spine

Fandex is the quirky and wide-ranging series that includes images and text to create a lively family field guide of pure information. Take them along on a trip, use them to spark dinner table conversation, or keep them on hand for instant reference.
