Just like every other kids in the 90’s, Jurassic Park was my first introduction to the world of dinosaurs. I bought A Grown-Up Guide to Dinosaurs by Ben Garrod as part of the Audible Originals monthly selection for July.
Divided into six chapters, each chapter included interviews with paleontologists with insightful commentary.
- What is a Dinosaur?
- Size Matters
I learned about the Dreadnoughtus and the Patagotitan finds.
- Feathered Freaks
The velociraptor shown in Jurassic Park was not a velociraptor, but rather a Deinonychus.
- Who Needs Bones?
How fossils help us understand dinosaurs, including their poop?
- What is Not a Dinosaur?
There were no dinosaurs in the oceans. They were called Plesiosaurs.
- The Fall of Dinosaurs
We all know how that happened.
Overall, it was an interesting and captivating read that I definitely recommend.
