Top Fossil Colouring Book

Print off these images of ancient New Zealand's lost creatures and colour them in.

SquawkzillaPalaeontologists use fossils to work out what the skeletons and muscles of these ancient animals looked like. However they can't usually tell what their skin or feathers were like. Illustrations of extinct animals or restorations are known as paleo art and artists have to use their imaginations when colouring them.

Were these animals camouflaged to hide? Were they bright to attract mates? Use your imagination to decide!
