Colorado, USA- 152 million years B.C. This episode follows a young female Diplodocus, starting with her infancy in the Late Jurassic forests where she must evade predators like the birdlike Ornitholestes. Later, as she moves out of the forests, she comes into contact with giants such as Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus and must survive attacks from the giant predatory Allosaurus. Written by

The egg-laying method of Diplodocus- depositing eggs through a long fleshy ovipositor- as portrayed in this episode is not supported by fossil evidence. However, sauropods like Diplodocus were too heavy to crouch while laying eggs, and dropping eggs from several meters high would surely damage them. Thus, it's not unlikely an ovipositor-like appendage existed. The filmmakers based the concept on turtles, which also use a short ovipositor to deposit eggs. See more
