Trivia

Very late into production it was discovered that Megarachne, the basis of the giant spider seen in the Carboniferous segment was actually an eurypterid or sea scorpion like those seen in the Silurian part. The crew decided then to rename their now obsolete creature "Mesothelae", after the most primitive group of living spiders. There were Mesothelae spiders in the Carboniferous, but just not that big.

Possibly the Best Documentary Of All Time!
21 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

What can I say, Walking With Monsters is quite possibly the greatest documentary ever. It is thrilling, suspenseful, action-packed, entertaining, and educational.

It portrays the constant struggle of life before the dinosaurs. It has some excellent CGI and music. The way it shows the prehistoric creatures are far better than how I imagined they would be.

No scenes bored me and I was always enthralled and at the edge of my seat. If you want to see a good documentary see this one. It exceeds in everything and far surpasses Dinosaur Planet and Walking With dinosaurs.

This is a spectacular documentary not to be missed.

My Rating: 9.9/10
