Description

This book aims to acquaint the reader with the rich natural heritage of Indian dinosaurs about which many of us are unaware.



The recorded story of the discovery of Indian dinosaurs goes back nearly 170 years, to 1828 to be precise, when a young army captain, William Sleeman, found large bones (later identified as dinosaurian) and petrified wood at Bara Simla Hill in Jabalpur Cantonment. Since then, several types of dinosaurs, both gigantic and small, have been scientifically described from several states and more discoveries are expected from the north-east region.
