The illustrations are great (as expected); but I'm not sure it was such a good
idea to include
a 'habits' section with each species. Some of the habit descriptions come
across as statements of
fact, rather than speculation or opinion.
Of what use would the habits of the living creature be in a 'field guide'
anyway? If the bones you
discover are being furtive with a hint of menace, does that suggest they are
from an 'ambush
predator' such as Ceratosaurus? :-)
