Extinct Hallucigenia (signed and personalised pre-order)


The story of life on Earth told through the planet’s major mass extinctions. Hallucigenia, a weird worm that lived 443 million years ago, is among the most iconic animals to ever walk, swim or stalk our planet. TV scientist Professor Ben Garrod makes top level science accessible, whether you’re 8 or 80, in this unique exploration of the most destructive, yet most creative force in nature.A collectable, full-colour, eight-book series, illustrated by paleoartist Gabriel Ugueto.

We have already lost an almost unbelievable 5 billion species, making extinction one of the most complex, interesting and important topics in science. Each book focuses on the landscape of one extinction and one animal lost. Hallucigenia was a tiny, spiky, armoured worm that lived during the Ordovician period 443 million years ago.

How do we know about its evolution, anatomy, behaviour, habitat and food chain? How do we know what led to its extinction? With an additional ‘Ask the Expert’ section, stunning full colour art on every page, glossary and pronunciation guide, each book reveals a different extinction story, from mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega volcanoes, to over-hunting by humans and habitat destruction.
