Terrible lizards. That’s what the word “dinosaurs” means. Yet dinosaurs are not true lizards, and they are not necessarily terrible either. Paleontologists have overturned many misconceptions, and in this eBook, Dinosaurs!*, we look at what the latest research tells us and what we still have to learn about these endlessly fascinating creatures. 

* Editor’s note: Special Edition was published as Dinosaurs!. The eBook adaptation contains all of the articles except for "Fossils of the Flaming Cliffs," and some artwork has been removed to optimize viewing on tablet devices.
