Flying Dinosaurs Feathered Reptiles & Ancient Birds
Did dinosaurs have feathers? Some of them certainly did. Remains of these creatures and of birds and flying reptiles that lived millions of years ago inspired this ready-to-color collection of 30 illustrations. From the turkey-sized Caudipteryx, with its long, flashy, feathered tail, to the Teratornis, a condor with a 12-foot wingspan, this carefully researched collection of feathered dinosaurs will amaze colorists and amateur paleontologists of all ages.
Included are finely detailed images of Archaeopteryx, a blue-jay-sized creature that lived 150 million years ago; the Beipiaosaurus, a nine-foot-long lizard with stiff feathers and leaf-shaped teeth; as well as a Velociraptor, Oviraptor, Quetzalcoatlus, and many other ancient animals. Captions describe feathering patterns, incubation periods, and nesting habits.
