Product Description

Winner of the 2003 Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program.

Travel back in time with dino-hunting zoologist Nigel Marven as he embarks on three exciting adventures into earth's prehistoric past – each as seen on the BBC. In The Giant Claw, the search is on for Therizinosaurus, a 75-million year old herbivore that's built like a meat-eater. Its enormous 28-inch claws and 10-foot arms are more than enough to keep the average predator away – but not Nigel. Land of Giants sees Nigel and his crew leap back to the early Cretaceous period to what is now Argentina. There, they stumble upon the Holy Grail of dinosaurs – Argentinosaurus. At over 100 feet long, it's the largest lizard ever. Then, in Chased by Sea Monsters, the team plumbs the depths of prehistory's seven deadliest seas. Prepare for up-close encounters with sea scorpions, terrifying giant squid, massive armored fish and the unthinkable Megalodon – the ancient relative to today's Great White Sharks.
