YouTube is Filled with Dinosaur Videos…or Why I Didn’t Finish My Boss’s Last Project on Time
procrastinating on looking through YouTube the other day when I ran in to a couple of pretty awesome dinosaur videos that I thought my fellow dinosaur lovers would appreciate.
Some of My Favorite YouTube Dinosaur Videos
This dinosaur video clip is pretty awesome not only because it’s about my favorite dino of all time, but also because it recreates the sound of the Parasaurolophus. There are a couple of dinosaur videos on YouTube that feature the Parasaurolophus sound but this one is pretty in depth and is also from one of my favorite Discovery pieces on dinosaurs: Clash of the Dinosaurs.
The Last Day of the Dinosaurs
This is actually one of the longer dinosaur videos that I ran across on YouTube from another Discovery piece called “The Last Day of the Dinosaurs.” If I remember rightly I found this piece to be pretty interesting, although don’t hold me to it because as I recall it was also 7am on a Saturday morning and I was also “resting my eyes”.
I also ran across the trailer for Planet Dinosaur from 10 months ago while spending far too long watching YouTube dinosaur videos! I have no idea how I missed this one because a) I love BBC One productions (no, not only because I’m British by birth) and b) dinosaurs. I can’t find this series on Netflix yet, but I did find a number of episodes on YouTube if you search for “Planet Dinosaur” or it’s available for pre-order from Amazon for $19.96. Also note, you will see a Blu-ray version of this available now but it is not the correct region to play on a U.S DVD player. For now I’m going to settle in and watch as many episodes as I can find on YouTube but I’m certain this one will make it in to my Dinosaur DVD collection as soon as it’s released.
The six episode DVD is set to be released in the U.S. on August 21st. I’ll feature more about this upcoming release early next week, until then, enjoy the dinosaur videos YouTube has to offer from this series.
