The December 2007 issue of National Geographic featured a ton of cool dinosaur illustrations. While the entire article is worth checking out, we’d like to share with you our favorite illustrations here. This includes a three-page fold out of Amargasuarus, and some great double-page spreads, too. You know how much we love reconstructing double splashes to fry your mind!

Not presented here is the two-sided poster from this issue. But if you can find it, it’s well worth the price of admission. It breaks down the dinosaurs into two groups based on which super-continent they inhabited: Laurasia or Gondwanaland. If you never heard of those before, it’s because they don’t freaking exist anymore! They split up to eventually become our current continents through the miracle of plate tectonics.

Enough science and big words for you there? Okay then! Let’s rock a gallery of these extreme dinos!
