All Yesterdays is a ebook in regards to the means we see dinosaurs and other
prehistoric animals. Lavishly illustrated with over sixty original
artworks, All Yesterdays goals to problem our notions of ways prehistoric
animals seemed and behaved. As an serious exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions about what's possible, what is
possible, and what's normally ignored.

Written through palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically creative in its method of fossils of the earlier - and those
of the longer term.

Example text

Elephants are excellent at swimming, crocodiles and alligators sometimes eat fruit and leaves, juvenile iguanas sometimes jump up at the moon at night, and goats in some areas often climb trees in order to browse. Animals do what they do, not necessarily because it is what they are good at, or even because their anatomy is suited to it, but simply because they can. As a result, unexpected behaviours are commonplace. Here, the famous ceratopsian Protoceratops is engaged in something it has no obvious adaptations or reason to do: climbing trees.

Originally they were known only from a set of giant, mystifying claws, the longest of which were more than 70 centimeters long. These claws prompted a whole range of theories and hypothetical identities. Early ideas were that therizinosaurs might be gigantic, turtle-like beasts or vast, vicious predators which slashed open the bellies of sauropods and other large dinosaurian prey. Better remains led to suggestions that therizinosaurs were plant eaters: perhaps late-surviving prosauropods or relatives of early ornithischians, or even a completely unique lineage of dinosaurs distinct from any other group.

More often than not, hunters give up on chasing their quarry. Predators regularly ignore animals that won't be worth the energy to pursue them, and herbivores may cautiously approach meat-eaters while seeking common resources such as water. Curiosity, fear, intimidation and exhaustion make predator-prey relationships far more complicated than we typically picture them to be. In this scene, set in the Late Jurassic, a herbivorous Camptosaurus is seen approaching a resting Allosaurus in what appears to be a curious social gesture.
