Megabugs is a fascinating picture book with illustrations of critters that roamed the Earth millions of years ago. Each animal has its own page with a timeline of the Paleozoic era that marks in red when it lived. They drew the amazing images based on fossils. I think it is amazing that the illustrations are so life like. Underneath the latin name of the animal, it says the meaning of the name, number of species, its habitat, preferred food, survival strategy and who it is related to now. My favourite bug is the dangler. It is enormous – it is bigger than an adult human! It swam in the oceans and ate plankton, similar to some whales today.
