All Yesterdays is a ebook in regards to the means we see dinosaurs and other
prehistoric animals. Lavishly illustrated with over sixty original
artworks, All Yesterdays goals to problem our notions of ways prehistoric
animals regarded and behaved. As an serious exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions about what's possible, what is
possible, and what's generally ignored.

Written via palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically innovative in its method of fossils of the prior - and those
of the long run.

Their crests were hollow and almost certainly would have been used to create loud honking sounds for communication. Lambeosaurus magnicristatus Mountain of Feathers? Therizinosaurus Some dinosaurs suffer from looking too exciting de-fleshed, leading artists to depict them in exciting and garish ways. If one group of dinosaurs could be singled out for their strangeness, the mystifying, long-clawed therizinosaurs would win hands (or claws) down. Therizinosaurs are a such a bizarre group of dinosaurs that, for a long time, it was not possible to discern what they were, let alone what they looked like.

When sexually aroused, excited or unable to find available members of their own kind, animals mate with members of other species with surprising regularity. Incidents of this sort are probably more common than generally realised, and there is evidence from the modern world that they occur increasingly during times of environmental stress or as populations become reduced or brought together due to changing conditions. When the species concerned are closely related, hybrid babies can be the result: numerous such cases are known from the modern world.

We pictured this particular plesiosaur as a sit-and-wait hunter, lying in shallow coral reefs and waiting for suitably sized prey to swim by. A near total absence of information on plesiosaur skin morphology means that we have no firm ideas about skin texture in these animals. It is assumed that most had a smooth skin for hydrodynamic efficiency, but we imagined this particular plesiosaur as a well-camouflaged hunter with an exceptional sit-and-wait strategy. As an air-breather, the dive time of our camouflaged lurker would be limited, but could theoretically still be long enough to allow fruitful hunting in areas of rich prey density.
