When did dinosaurs disappear from Earth? Scientists believe that the last dinosaur species became extinct about 65.5 million years ago. In Paleontology: The Study of Prehistoric Life you'll find how fossils can teach us about plants and animals that have been extinct for millions of years; a timeline, photos - and how paleontologists dig up fossils without damaging them; and surprising true facts that will shock and amaze you!

Millions of years ago, Earth was populated by animals unlike any that we know today. The only way to learn anything about these extinct species is to study the remains they have left behind in Earths rocks and soil. Full of true facts, this is the perfect beginners book for a budding paleontologist.
