In the species index you will find a great many entries, but don’t expect to find just dinosaurs. While there is a great number of dinosaur species on here, you will also find the early arthropods which include sea scorpions bigger than a person. The earliest fish are also here, including the prehistoric sharks that hunted the ocean depths before, during and after the age of giant marine reptiles. The early amphibians and their early reptile descendants also have entries. From here you will have entries for the dinosaurs, but also other creatures of the Mesozoic like the pterosaurs, early mammals, ancient crocodiles and the first birds. Other index entries will be for the mammals that became the dominant life forms of the planet after the dinosaurs, with entries from the sabre toothed cats to the first whales. You will even find entries for animals that are prehistoric, but are still alive in our world today.Click a letter to go to the corresponding list.

site also tries to go beyond being just another online encyclopaedia
and includes articles about the creatures in general. These cover
subjects such as biology of the creatures, possible behaviour, to
how they were found and reconstructed.
Two additional sections are the glossary and time periods page. The glossary is a good place to check out if you are uncertain about what some of the words and terminology mean. The time periods page is an overview of how the different geological time periods fit together.
Fun areas are the acivities section which features fun activity sheets which can be downloaded and printed off. Top lists on the other hand features compilations of creatures that stand out amongst others for a given particular field.
