Trivia

"When Dinosaurs Ruled" doesn't cover the dinosaurs that lived in Asia. However, the show was later bundled together with three other Discovery documentaries about dinosaurs - Beyond T-Rex (about the two other apex predators of the era that dwarfed T-Rex), Tyrannosaurus Rex (about the common misconceptions about the creature) and Asia - Land of the Dragon (a documentary that does cover Asian dinosaurs).
