The story of life on Earth through the planet's major mass extinctions. Book 5 is on the Tyrannosaurus Rex, among the largest dinosaurs and with the strongest bite of all. TV scientist Professor Ben Garrod makes top level science accessible to everyone, whether you're 8 or 80! He presents a unique exploration of the most iconic animals ever to walk, swim, waddle or stalk our planet in this collectable, full-colour eight-book series, illustrated by palaeoartist Gabriel Ugueto. For as long as there have been species, there has been extinction. As many as 99% of species that have ever lived have gone extinct which means we have already lost an almost unbelievable 5 billion species from our planet. Ben Garrod shows how extinction is one of the most complex, interesting and important topics to study in science. Each book will focus on the landscape of one extinction and one animal lost. The worst day in Earth's history: roughly 66 million years ago the End Cretaceous mass extinction began destroying 75% of life. Like all species larger than a fox, the Tyrannosaurus rex, weighing as much as three elephants and as long as a bus, was made extinct. With an additonal 'Ask the Expert' section, stunning full-colour art on every page, glossary and pronunciation guide, each book will reveal a different extinction story, from mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega volcanoes, to over-hunting by humans and habitat destruction.
