Death of A PredatorBook - 1999
Seventy-six million years ago, one young dinosaur's life came to an end. It was an Albertosaurus, one creature in the line of ferocious raptors that would culminate in Tyrannosaurus Rex. But its death was also a beginning - the start of its transformation into a fossil that would lie undiscovered for millennia, until the forces of erosion brought the young dinosaur once again to light. With an intriguing variety of text and illustration, this book explores the two lives of this Albertosaurus. It reconstructs the world as this dinosaur would have known it: its birth and life and its interaction with fellow dinosaurs. It also details the process by which an archaeology team from the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta excavated and preserved the fossil. Fact-based reconstructive drawings of the dinosaur era, detailed scientific drawings, and photographs of the preservation effort complement the text.Albertosaurus: Death of a Predator is No. 1 in the Discoveries in Palaeontology series.
