DINO-A-DAY #88: Kronosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

PRONUNCIATION: KRON-o-SAWR-uhs
ORDER: Plesiosauria
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Australia, 1924

I know! Actually we're technically finished with dinosaurs and now we're just wrapping it up with some air-beasts and water-beasts.

Hope you like the book!
