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.

Latest from the BBC
24 February 2006 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

One more in the stunning series from BBC television. The first, "Walking with Dinosaurs" was the best, in my opinion. They put a lot of effort in these productions with top shelf animation that will satisfy viewers of any age. "Walking with Monsters" goes back in time before the dinos to a truly overlooked period in life's evolution. Animals that defied taxonomy branched off and went their own evolutionary route that ended in the greatest mass extinction in earth's history about 250 million years ago. It'll never be known how those animals would have turned out since 95% of all species died. And it may never be known what they looked like and what their behavior was, but the producers of this work filled in the unknowns with brilliant speculation and imagination. They make it seem like it's a wildlife documentary. Wide eyed kids aside, I'll bet the biggest fans are paleontologists. Not to be missed if you're interested in this genre. (Spoiler - they eat each other)
