Living fossils are survivors from the dawn of life on earth. They havesurvived mass extinction, escaped the enemies that killed off other animals, and avoided evolution to live for tens and even hundreds of millions of yearsvirtually unchanged. When the dinosaurs perished, the living fossilsremained--and even thrived. The award-winning author of Hiding Out, Tentacles, and Chameleons documents these resilient creatures, from the exotic to the familiar, including the Komodo dragon, crocodile, alligator, horseshoe crab, nautilus, and the ubiquitous cockroach. Withdazzling photographs, detailed illustrations comparing the creatures' ancienthabitats, and awesome facts, Living Fossils unravels some of themysteries behind nature's longest running success stories
