Forgotten Beasts

Author(s): Matt Sewell

Reference

Matt Sewell's follow-up to the mega-hit Dinosaurs is a beautifully-illustrated large format look at the amazing beasts that time forgot - from the relatively well known, such as the sabre-toothed tiger and woolly mammoth, to the obscure monsters that walked the earth millions of years ago - many now forgotten. New findings are being made every year, and research is showing us exactly how these beasts looked and how they lived.


Creatures illustrated and described include:



  • Sabre tooth tigers and woolly mammoths

  • Glyptodon - an armadillo as big as a VW Beetle car

  • Megalodon - a monster 60 foot (18m) shark

  • Water King penguin - a red and grey penguin the size of a man

  • Ornimegalonyx - a huge Cuban flightless owl, the largest owl that ever existed, at over 3 feet (1m) tall

  • Deinotherium - a strange-looking and huge, elephant-like creature with tusks positioned on its lower jaw and curved, facing downwards

  • Short-nosed bear - a massive fearsome bear that kept North America human free

  • Megatherium - the giant sloth, as large as a modern elephant


Less celebrated than the dinosaurs, the range of beasts is equally impressive, every one a scary, amazing creature that actually stalked the planet. Like the dinosaurs, these beasts are awe-inspiring in their variety, with amazing details not seen on animals today and in a wide variety of furs, feathers and colours, making for a stunning collection of illustrations.
