Quotes

Kenneth Lacovara: The rise of the mammalian megafauna wouldn't have been possible were it not for the extinction of the dinosaurs; and, to examine this idea, it's instructive to think about the idea of niche, a biological niche. You can think of a niche essentially as the job description of an organism.

Excellent!
24 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Prehistoric Monsters Revealed of the most informative documentaries I've ever seen. I stumbled across it playing late at night and learned more in two hours than I have in months. I found myself with my mouth agape with the knowledge of modern science's ability to unfold the secrets of the past. I was sad when it was over, and that never happens with documentaries!

If you want to get a rare insight into the lives and oddities of past (and current) animals, this is the documentary for you. The only warning I have is that this particular documentary requires some scientific interest or the depth to which they delve will just cause glazed eyes and an early bedtime. However, no scientific knowledge is specifically required, as everything is very well explained in a conceptual way. So, if you want to educate yourself for a couple of hours, invest the time to watch this show!
