If you want to learn more about the dinosaur discoveries of 2015, then check out our upcoming book, Top 10 Dinosaurs of 2015. Here’s the official description:
“The air is warm and the ground is moist, almost spongy. Dakotaraptor steini takes slow, deliberate steps, keeping the sickle-like claws on her second toes off the ground. They are large, 9.5 in (24 cm) long, big enough to slash and kill a decent-sized meal.
Dakotaraptor is scouting the area for potential prey. At 18 ft (5.5 m) long, with long legs that allow her to reach speeds of 30-40 mph (50-65 kph), she doesn’t have to worry about being attacked.
Still, she needs to be cautious. She has traveled only a short distance, down from her upland territory, but she is now in T-rex’s domain.”
The golden age of dinosaur discoveries continues, with 35 named dinosaurs coming out in 2015.
Blending fiction with fact, Top 10 Dinosaurs of 2015 reimagines the way 10 of the newly described Jurassic and Cretaceous dinosaurs lived in their natural habitats.
