When did dinosaurs die out? What does a Pachycephalosaurus look like and how thick is its skull? How many pounds of meat could a Tyrannosaurus rex swallow at once? Find out the answers to these questions and more in DKfindout! Dinosaurs, which features photographs of dinosaur fossils alongside computer-generated images of what each species might have looked like when it was alive.

Along the way, readers will discover the diets and hunting habits of different dinosaurs, learn how their bones turned into fossils, and find out how birds and reptiles are distantly related to dinosaurs.
