Before telling, I want to say this isn't a late April Fool's joke. It's a real book.

 

I was online yesterday, searching for some corny dinosaur jokes. While searching, I found an odd of paleoart of a Stegosaurus and a hadrosaur-like dinosaur crossbreeding. Being cursed with curiousity, I clicked on the link, and found a book titled All Yesterdays.

 

Here's a few pictures:

 

 Cute: A Tyrannosaurus rex is pictured how it might have looked while asleep. A new book called All Yesterdays offers radically different perspectives on how dinosaurs might have looked

A Tyrannosaurus, not too different.

 

Majungasaurus crenatissimus

Majungasaurus, it looks like a chicken.

 

Climbing to safety: Goats are able to climb trees, although their skeletons look as though they are not adapted to it, so the artists imagined proceratops exhibiting the same kind of behaviour

If goats can climb trees, Protoceratops can!

 

Lying in wait: This picture shows a plesiosaur, which are typically imagined in dynamic pose as they pounce on prey. Instead it's hiding in muck and algae near the shore, waiting for a meal to drift by

Here's a plesiosaur, waiting for prey to swim by, much like an Angel Shark.

(I can see short-necked plesiosaurs doing this.)

 

The authors' proof? Here's three creature drawings based on their skeletons:

 

Baboon

Fierce: The artists show the speculative nature of dinosaur with this striking image, which shows how a baboon skeleton may have been imagined by a palaeoartist

 

Common Cow

Sleek: Here is their representation of how a common cow might be drawn, based on its skeleton

 

House Cat

Curiosity: A house cat, drawn as a palaeoartist might imagine it

It can be purchased on a number of websites and bookstores.

Very interesting. However, those are mammals. Reptiles and birds, dinosaurs closest relatives look very similar to their skeletons. Looks good though!

wow.. never thought of it like that. :/

Youre fat, and I'm not sugarcoating it cause you'd probably eat that too.

I think the T.rex and Majungasaurus images have merit, but the rest seem foolhardy, due to them being mammals and "shrink-wrapping" them.

BUT @PrimalKing, there are enough bird species and genera that don't look exactly the same on the outside as they do on the skeletal level, most notably owls and kakapos.

Owls actually have long beaks, but one wouldn't know that because of all the feathers covering most of the body.  

Kakapos (or owl parrots) have a great deal of feathers around their heads like owls, making an optical illusion of their head being bigger than the skull, like owls.  Their beaks though, are fully exposed, because it points down rather than out.
