What can you learn from a 250-million-year-old tooth? More than you might think! From the knife-like teeth of Tyrannosaurus rex, to the blunt rake-like teeth of the armored Euoplocephalus, to the leaf-stripping teeth of the giant Diplodocus, every bicuspid and molar has a fascinating tale to tell about the food these animals ate, the way they hunted and foraged, and even what might have led to their demise. In Creature Files: Dinosaurs, you'll peer inside the jaws of these fearsome creatures, discovering what they really looked like, where they roamed, and what they ate, using many of the same tools that actual paleontologists do. Can you match the three replica teeth to the prehistoric mouths they belong to? Stunning illustrations and surprising stats bring the stories of these long-extinct beasts to life.
