Prehistoric Giants

The megafauna of Australia

By Danielle Clode

Step back in time to when giant goannas and marsupial lions stalked the Australian bush. Imagine herds of two-tonne Diprotodon roaming the plains, and flocks of flightless ducks bigger than emus striding across the shallow inland sea.

Prehistoric Giants is a guide to the Australian megafauna of the Pleistocene – when humans shared the land with giants.

Richly illustrated, Prehistoric Giants is brought to life by the art of Peter Trusler, among others, and will reveal an Australia you've never seen before.
