WORLD DINOSAUR GUIDE
This is an original dinosaur encyclopedia for the iPhone that follows the 200 million year old miracle of the enormous lifeforms that once wandered the Earth. Other than famous dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus and Stegosaurus, it covers 100 dinosaurs in total including less popular dinousaurs such as the Fukuisaurus excavated in Japan. This full-scale encyclopedia is pretty fun to look at and read especially for those who love dinosaurs as well as others.
With vivid illustrations provided by Takumi Yamamoto, a well-known artist of dinosaur paintings, "the meaning of names", "categorization", "places where they were found", "period", "food", "sizes" and "distinctions" are all recorded in detailed texts on the application for iPhone. 100 data of dinosaurs including famous and less-known are recorded such as "Miasaura"(means 'caring mother lizard") that nurtured its eggs and young well and "Oviraptor" (means "egg seizer") whose name was mistakenly given only because its first fossil specimen was discovered atop a pile of eggs. As such, those texts about dinosaur are well woth reading.
