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

Scientists believe that Sauropods like Diplodocus needed much more time to reach adulthood (many decades) as opposed to the ten years the program claims. See more
Leaves and branches lay about on the forest ground, as the Diplodocus hatchlings make their way into the woods. By doing so, their feet disturb the branches. The problem is that the branches and leaves that get disturbed are not under their feet but are in fact several feet away from the animals - they are apparently disturbed by nothing, and this makes us believe that the young computer generated Sauropods were animated in the wrong place.

Eventually the mighty sauropods went into decline, and their lowland prairies became flooded because the sea levels began to rise. This created vast inland seas, and in the next program, we will meet the giant carnivorous reptiles that patrolled them.
