Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Creatures

Did you know that on August 12, 1990, fossil hunter Susan Hendrickson discovered three huge bones jutting out of a cliff near Faith, South Dakota, and that they turned out to be part of the largest Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever discovered? They named the 42-foot, 65-million-year-old dinosaur Sue after its discoverer.

You can study dinosaurs like Sue in an excellent, it’s-hard-to-believe-that-this-is-used copy of Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Creatures published by Backpack Books. This volume, featured below, is impressively handsome and full of colorful illustrations and informative details.

We’ve also placed a mini-catalog of all of our current dinosaur-related items.
