Description

TV scientist Prof Ben Garrod presents the biggest extinction events ever, told from the point of view of evolution’s superstars, the most incredible animals ever to swim, stalk, slither or walk our planet. Whether you’re 9 or 90, his unique exploration of the most destructive, yet most creative, force in nature makes top level science fun.

Here are the superstars of the story of life, from the super-weird to the super-ferocious. Usually a species has 10 million years or so of evolving, eating, chasing, playing, maybe doing homework, or even going to the moon before it goes extinct.

Megalodon, the super-predator, had the most powerful bite force ever measured! Terrorising the oceans, it hunted with stealth and skill, but even Megalodon died out, along with 50 percent of marine mammals, 2.5 million years ago. Find out why!’An accessible, beautifully illustrated book that covers millions of years of natural history by focusing on one particularly deadly predator… I am intrigued to read the other books in the series’ Love
