DINOSAURS AND OTHER MESOZOIC REPTILES OF CALIFORNIA
  
By Richard P. Hilton

  

(Hardback with dust jacket)

(Second hand copy in very good condition)

  

One of the most geologically complex and diverse states, California spent much of the age of dinosaurs under water. While most of the fossils found in the state are those of reptiles that lived in the sea (thalattosaurs, ichthyosaurs, mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, and turtles), some are those of birds and pterosaurs that soared above it. Other fossils come from terrestrial animals that died and were washed into the ocean. These include turtles, crocodiles, lizards, and dinosaurs such as armored ankylosaurs, duck-billed hadrosaurs, and a variety of carnivorous dinosaurs.

  

Beautifully illustrated with more than three hundred photographs, paintings, and drawings, this book provides geological and environmental details, describes the significance of the major fossils, and chronicles the adventures involved in the discovery, preparation, and publishing of the finds.

   

Hardback. Dust jacket. 318 pages. Published by the University of California Press. 2003. Very good condition. Black and white and colour photos and illustrations throughout.
