Where _Walking With Dinosaurs (1999) (TV)_ took us through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Eras, Walking With Prehistoric Beasts examines the various Cenozoic eras, when mammals began to dominate after the massive late Cretaceous extinction that killed 65% of life on Earth, including the dinosaurs.Written by

It is not unusual for the narrator to refer to the different kinds of animals not by their proper genus or species names, but rather with broader terms (like the name of the group they belonged to), making it hard to identify the animals more precisely. For example, the giant rhinoceros Paraceratherium is simply called an "indricothere", and there is also the bizarre plant-eater Embolotherium, which is gets to be named "brontothere". This is true for all the "Walking with..." series, but the naming method began to get prominent in this show. However it also produced several dubbing mistakes for other countries; some dubs did not translate these animal names at all, others added one or two extra letters to the end of the names, while some translations tried to use more exact names for some of the animals, mostly ending up with incorrect or out-of-use terms - this can be forgivable, since in some cases, like with the aforementioned Paraceratherium, there are a handful of different scientific names that can be used.

We have since built museums to celebrate the past, and spend decades studying prehistoric lives. And if all this has taught us anything, it is this: no species lasts forever.

Walking with Prehistoric Beast is sometimes overlooked by its most famous predecessor, but that is a great mistake. To start the stories here are more complex from the Walking with Dinosaurs and that is reasonable, if you think that mammals have more evolved brains. Anyway the location we see here is a bit creepy because many of the places that the events of the series take place are either for the most part the same or they have changed dramatically in geologically speaking (less than 65 million years ago).Also some the majority of the extinct creatures that are presented still have descenders in the modern-day and I remember felling amazed by that fact. A bonus fact is that the graphic due to the improvement of the technology from 1999 are extreme realistic and in all honest look better than Walking with Dinosaurs. In summary it is a sequel ( OK of documentary in this case) done right, so go watch it all six episodes, it is about 3 hours and after you will want to see them again.
