Is there a book out there along the lines: A Field Guide to Mesozoic

Along similar lines, see numerous sample illustrations from _Fossil Birds of China_ at http://www-hsc.usc.edu/~cmchuong/fossil_birds_of_china.htm#Sample%20Pages, another book you might enjoy.


On one of the pages the captions goes:

How many can you identify?

Caudipteryx, Confuciusornis, Sinosauropteryx, Sinornithosaurus, Pterosaurs (flying dino), Changchengornis, Psittacosaurus (beaked dino), Zhangheotherium (the only mammal).



Apart from the "flying Dino" funny mention, what I wonder is where is the mammal? I looked as much as I could but couldn't see it.
