About this deal

At some point the decision was made to actually bring him on and use his illustrations within the book, and in the final version he’s credited as ‘Palaeontological Artist’. I am not entirely sure which sections Liz Wyse was in charge of but there’s an extensive biographical section on palaeontologists and I think she might have written that.

It explains why the phylogenetic arrangement of the mammals follows the ‘Novacek tree’ (referring to the hypothesis of placental mammal evolution proposed by Mike Novacek; Novacek 1992). A close-up of the model’s face appears on the cover of the UK edition (and on some other editions too) and a direct result of its familiarity is that it’s partly been the go-to look for Giganotosaurus ever since: green, with assorted nodules and dorsal spikes. A great many of them have been based on fragmentary or incomplete material that may actually have come from two or more different dinosaurs. The following year Mantell published his “Notice on the Iguanodon, a Newly Discovered Fossil Reptile, from the Sandstone of Tilgate Forest, in Sussex,” on the basis of several teeth and some leg bones.

Other fossil bones began turning up in Europe: fragments described and named as Thecodontosaurus and Palaeosaurus by two English students, Henry Riley and Samuel Stutchbury, and the first of many skeletons named Plateosaurus by the naturalist Hermann von Meyer in 1837.

Large fossilized bones quite probably had been observed long before that time, but there is little record—and no existing specimens—of such findings much before 1818. I was quite pleased with how the pliosaur turned out (the blue animal with flippers): a real contrast to the original version, and the Paraceratherium (at upper middle) is not bad either. They'll discover where they came from, how they lived and what happened to them as well as interesting facts including which dinosaurs used their tail like a club and who had a brain the size of a ping-pong ball. In 1676 Robert Plot of the University of Oxford included, in a work of natural history, a drawing of what was apparently the knee-end of the thighbone of a dinosaur, which he thought might have come from an elephant taken to Britain in Roman times. If you don’t already have the book, tap the play button on the app's opening screen and wait for 20 seconds to get a link to a retail page outside the app where the book can be purchased.Having carefully studied most of these fossil specimens, Owen recognized that all of these bones represented a group of large reptiles that were unlike any living varieties.
