Hollywood and the popular press would have us believe that all dinosaurs are gigantic, hostile and untameable. In fact, there are many species that make charming and even useful companions:

Velociraptor - a splendid, loyal, fierce, friend

Deinonychus - will not eat dog food (dogs are another matter)

Tyrannosaurus - least suitable to keep; will need special licence

Ornithomimus - an appealing first dinosaur for the child anxious for her first ride


This book advises you which dinosaur is right for you and your home, from the city apartment dweller looking for a lap pet, to the country estate owner looking to tighten up on security.

HOW TO KEEP DINOSAURS is a bestselling guide, packed with the sort of information keen dinosaur keepers crave - from feeding and housing to curing common ailments, breeding and showing your animal. The author, a zoologist with extensive experience of dinosaurs, has provided a timely and much-needed source book for all those who keep dinosaurs and for the huge numbers who are contemplating getting one. It is as essential to every dinosaur keeper as a stout shovel and a tranquilliser rifle.
