While reptilian giants did dominate the dinosaur age, there were small iterations if these life forms. For every Tyrannosaurus there were small to tiny sized cousins who took advantage of different aspects of their ecosystems to thrive. For example, while Raptors, Pterosaurs, and Ichthyosaurs were preeminent, smaller predators such as Compsognathus, a chicken-sized land-based predator, thrived in their niche in the environment. It is these smaller scale dinosaurs that are the center of attention in this colorfully illustrated book.
