Paleontologist Robert T. Bakker tells the amazing story of a day in the life of a pack of Deinonychus (a.k.a.“raptor”) dinosaurs. Readers follow the creatures as they single out, kill, and devour an injured tenontosaur; climb up into a tree; fall asleep; and are themselves stalked by a giant predator. Includes an explanation of how scientists study rocks and minerals; fossil roots, claws, teeth, and bones; and modern predators to understand raptor behavior.
Dr. Robert T. Bakker is one of the most respected vertebrate paleontologists in the world. Often credited with starting the “dinosaur renaissance,” he is curator of paleontology at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
