This is the second book in The World of Dinosaur Roar! Inspired by the classic picture book, Dinosaur Roar! Guide to Dinosaurs. Product Description: Dinosaurs were amazing creatures. We continue to learn more about them from the fossil record, but there are still many questions: How do dinosaurs fit with the Bible?
Are they really millions of years old? Did they live at the same time as humans? Were there dinosaurs on Noah's Ark? How did they go extinct? Looking At Product Description: Describes the physical characteristics and probable behavior of this fierce meat-eating dinosaur from western North America. Deinonychus Little Paleontologist.

By John H. The origins of the name are quite interesting: Deinonychus die-NON-i-cus is the name of a remarkable and important dinosaur very similar to velociraptor, named for the enormous "killer claw" on its foot Why did you choose this name for your band? How do you think it fits to the mood of your music? I must have answered this question over a 1.
Do you mind to skip this one and get on with it!?! He he he:. You were also only by yourself in the band a few years with no other members in Deinonychus. Nowadays things are different. In Deinonychus had the first and only live performance so far. How did you managed to make a concert, if you were the only member? Did you use guest musicians? No, this concert was part of a theatrical show, my music was on DAT-tapes, and I sung live over it.
The whole event was based on theatrical stuff and such. According to other opinions, that show was a success. I deal with an international line-up which makes things more complex when it comes to rehearsing stuff and coming together as one piece. In January William Sarginson joined Deinonychus on drums. Why did you decided to introduce other members in Deinonychus? The drums on the materials before were drum machines, or real drums? The drums on the albums before was drummed by myself, just some little parts where done by drum machines.
However, nowadays William sadly had to leave the band for private reasons. You have released 6 full-lenghth albums and 1 EP on 4 different record labels. Why did you change so many times the label for Deinonyichus? What do you think of the labels for which you were signed to in the past? Which was the worst one and which was the best label for you so far?
Major changes in how dinosaurs were reconstructed date back to , when the US palaeontologist Joseph Leidy proposed a bipedal posture for Hadrosaurus , evidenced by the disproportion in the size of its limbs. This was the first skeletal reconstruction of a dinosaur standing upright.
The end of the nineteenth century was marked by the discovery of numerous relatively complete dinosaur skeletons in the United States, and shapes depicted for dinosaurs began to differ markedly from those of modern reptiles. They were drawn with more slender bodies, and longer necks and limbs; some had spikes, horns and bony plates, uncommon in modern animals.
However, because of their association with living reptiles, they were still considered slow, heavy, large, cold-blooded and relatively unintelligent. During this period, all bipedal dinosaurs were depicted in a characteristic kangaroo pose Fig. As in the standing kangaroo, the tail of the reconstructed dinosaur was lowered to the ground and served as a third leg. During walking, it was dragged along the ground. The spine was almost vertical, which gave the profile a human-like character.
Quadrupedal dinosaurs were also reconstructed dragging their tails along the ground Fig. Some of these, such as sauropods, were illustrated living in swamps or lakes, submerging most of their body in water to help counteract its weight Fig. Their necks were curved like those of swans, meaning that their heads were always above the water. The most famous and influential artist of this era is the American Charles Robert Knight. Knight created illustrations of dinosaurs in the Impressionist style, under the influence of the palaeontologist Edward Drinker Cope.
Again, the discovery of new fossils led to the next step forward in the accuracy of dinosaur palaeoart. In , palaeontologist John Ostrom described an unusual for the time theropod dinosaur called Deinonychus.
It was thought to be relatively small 2. Since then, dinosaurs have been portrayed by some leading palaeoartists as dynamic, warm-blooded and often quick, with complex behaviours.
Their spines were set roughly parallel to the ground, and they no longer dragged their tails Fig. Another significant change in the drawings and sculptures of dinosaurs was the presentation of sauropods as terrestrial animals Fig.

Skeletal drawings in the form created by Charles Knight in the s and similar to what we see today — white bones on a black background representing the body profile during life — were popularized by Gregory Paul and Robert T. Bakker Fig. It is during this time that the word paleoart was first used, by the US artist Mark Hallett.
It quickly became widespread. The work of palaeoartists became increasingly scientific and they put more emphasis on studying the anatomy of modern animals and the palaeobotany of the landscape. In addition, they developed ways to reconstruct anatomy with scientific accuracy, and worked more closely with palaeontologists. Some even started writing scientific articles themselves.
At the same time, some palaeontologists began to pay more attention to palaeoart. The dinosaur renaissance did start some negative trends, however, such as the reconstruction of dinosaurs with very small amounts of soft tissue sometimes with every opening of the skull visible in the reconstructed living animal , as well as a focus on extreme violence and dynamic poses in the illustrations, so that viewers could get the impression that dinosaur life was a constant fight for survival. Bakker, a US palaeontologist and palaeoartist, was a key figure in the dinosaur renaissance.
He published influential books and articles with innovative illustrations such as Fig.

Bakker and Ostrom popularized the view, suggested by English biologist Thomas Henry Huxley in , that dinosaurs are very closely related to birds. The most influential artist of the dinosaur renaissance is Gregory Paul, author of books and articles about the reconstruction and life appearance of dinosaurs, as well as high-quality illustrations. The presence of feathered dinosaurs was confirmed by fossil discoveries in Asia in the second half of the s, including forms such as Sinosauropteryx Fig.
This led palaeoartists to depict dinosaurs with feathers instead of reptilian scales Fig. Furthermore, drawings of sauropod heads started to place the nostrils lower and more forward than before reflecting attempts to reconstruct the ancestral-reptile nostril configuration , and with larger amounts of covering soft tissue.

Diplodocus and its relatives and sometimes other sauropods were illustrated with a row of triangular dorsal spines, as suggested by discoveries of fossilized skin impressions. For several years at the end of the twentieth and start of the twenty-first centuries, sauropods were reconstructed with their necks parallel to the ground Fig. Subsequently, debate over head and neck posture in sauropods was re-invigorated based on the study of the postures of extant amniotes, that is reptiles, birds and mammals ; it is still unresolved.
This is reflected by the existence of palaeoart showing both types of reconstruction Fig. The study of melanosomes , pigment cells that gave feathers their colour during life , brought about further advances in the accuracy of palaeoart. This allowed, for the first time ever, reconstructions of feathered dinosaurs with potentially true feather colours Fig. However, a limitation of this approach comes from the fact that the melanosomes representing certain colours are fossilized in different ways, and we do not definitively know what impact fossilization processes have on the preservation of pigments.
Unfortunately, some negative trends stemming from the dinosaur renaissance were continued. The plumage recreated was often too thin, and in certain cases all muscle and bone outlines were still visible Fig. The backgrounds to artworks were conservative, with mostly flat, stage-like plains as the foreground and other elements, such as volcanoes, only a background. Some of the most important palaeoartists from this period included Luis V.
