Megalodon (Extinct – The Story of Life on Earth Book 6)

Megalodon (Extinct – The Story of Life on Earth Book 6)

Author(s): Ben Garrod, Gabriel Ugueto

Location(s): World

Genre(s): Children

Era(s): Past

TV scientist 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! Terrorizing 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.

Collect all eight books about animals we have lost in mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega-volcanoes, clashing continents and climate change.

Also includes:
* Past brought to full-colour life by palaeoartist Gabriel Ugueto
* Ask an Expert contributions from leading scientists
* Glossary and pronunciation guide
