Trivia

One of the first documentaries to depict small coelurosaurian dinosaurs such as raptors and oviraptorids with feathers. However we now know that they were much more feathered in real life. Instead of having scaly faces and hands with wing-feathers sticking out of their wrists, these dinosaurs had feathery heads (only their nose remained scaly), and their hands were permanently integrated into their primitive wings, with the wing-feathers lining their entire hand, specifically the line of their middle finger.

Goofs

When the land crocodilian steals a Saltasaurus egg in the Alpha's Egg segment, the thing fuses halfway into its face. Because of this animation error, they mostly show us the other side of its head, but it is still noticeable. See more »

Better than walking with dinosaurs
31 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Most people say this is a lot worse than Walking With Dinosaurs. Although Walking With Dinosaurs is more accurate to how dinosaurs actually were, Dinosaur Planet is much more entertaining. Their are some nice visuals in Dinosaur Planet and a lot of action and intense violent scenes. I'd recommend this to anyone who has the slightest interest in dinosaurs. Some people complain that they saw dinosaurs walking on grass. First of all, the "grass" was probably a type of grass-like plant that evolved earlier. Second of all even if it were grass that doesn't ruin the film and only real Dino nerds would care about that too much. Overall this is one of the best dinosaur documentaries ever made.

9.8/10
