Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia

Travel with Argentinian palaeontologist Rodolfo Corio as we visit dinosaur excavations in Patagonia.

Here, from the fossilized dinosaur evidence, we’ll piece together our worlds prehistoric natural history and recreate life over 100 million years ago in the Early Cretaceous.

The dinosaurs found from the excavations have shown some of the largest land-dwelling animals to ever walk the Earth.

Some of these are the titanesque plant-eating Argentinosaur and the Giganotosaur, a bipedal carnivore that could easily challenge the famous T-Rex.

Since the creation of this documentary in 2007, many more dinosaurs have been found in Patagonia.

Six of these, found in 2012, show the fossils of the species dated to about 100 million years ago (based on ash found around them).

The dinosaurs averaged 122 feet long (37 metres) and was nearly 20 feet high (6 metres) at the shoulder.

Find out about these dinosaurs and more about the Early Cretaceous as we discover the prehistoric with Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia.
