All Yesterdays is a publication concerning 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 regarded and behaved. As an serious exploration of palaeontological
art, All Yesterdays asks questions about what's possible, what is
possible, and what's more often than not ignored.

Written via palaeozoologist Darren Naish, and palaeontological artists John
Conway and C.M. Kosemen, All Yesterdays is scientifically rigorous and
artistically innovative in its method of fossils of the earlier - and those
of the long run.

In order to mate with females bearing a phalanx of dangerous spines and armored plates, we imagined male stegosaurs to have developed some of the largest and most frighteningly dextrous penises of the dinosaur world. Stegosaurus trying to mount an innocent Haplocanthosaurus. Stegosaurus stenops skeletal Glorious Mud? Camarasaurus grandis Of all the kinds of behaviour that animals can engage in, it's probably play that been depicted the most rarely. Plenty of pieces of art show dinosaurs running, jumping, attacking or defending themselves from other dinosaurs, and some even show dinosaurs mating and defecating, but almost none show them playing.

As unsettling as they may seem, such acts may even be considered to be part of the animal's play behavior. 25 It is well known that modern elephants are prone to a sort of seasonal sexual madness when they go through a phase of heightened sexual aggression termed musth. While in musth, elephants have been observed trying to forcefully mate with members of different species, such as rhinos. We combined ideas about interspecies mating events with both the possibility of oversized sexual organs and of a seasonal 'sexual madness'.

The Spider Monkey was a small, possibly arboreal species of Human with extraordinarily long fingers and big eyes. " "A Toad ambles merrily along the Holocene forest floor. " Covering Up is not so Easy: the Integument Problem If no feathers are preserved in the fossil record, will future palaeontologists guess at their presence? It seems unlikely. They will possibly recognise that birds had wings, but fill them in the simplest way: a membrane of skin. What about the other way around? Will errors of preservation, or of phylogenetic bracketing, lead to mistaken assumptions of furry body covering?
