Videos of Dinosaurs Are All Over the Net
Since the Doctor and I canceled our cable a while ago I have come to realize just how many dinosaur “documentaries” I watched. Now that we no longer have cable though I find myself scouring Netflix for new dinosaur content as well as the constantly growing YouTube. What I like about YouTube is that there are so many clips to look through, the chances of me coming to an end of dinosaur content (something I did with Netflix quite a while ago) are slim. So today I want to share with you some of my favorite videos of dinosaurs.
Videos of Dinosaurs Worth Watching
Brain Versus Brawn – Inside the Brain of a T-Rex
This video by National Geographic takes a look inside the brain casing of a Tyrannosaurus Rex to get a better picture of just what this giant carnivore was like and how its senses likely functioned.
Jurassic CSI: T-Rex Trauma
Another National Geographic video clip, this piece takes a look at Sue, the oldest known Tyrannosaurus Rex specimen discovered to date. Researchers attempt to discover the secret of Sue’s healing process by breaking bones just like hers to see how she survived multiple fighting injuries.
Jack Horner: Shape-shifting dinosaurs
This video is a production from Jack Horner and if you have 18 minutes I highly recommend watching the whole thing. Horner has some great information on dinosaurs and he always leaves attendees of his lectures thinking. This video clip takes a look at the “shape-shifting” dinosaurs in explanation of why there are so few baby dinosaur specimens to be found.
The Last Day of the Dinosaurs
This is a piece from the Discovery Channel that takes an in depth look at the “last day” of the dinosaurs and how some believe the extinction event to have taken place. This is a long video but it’s definitely worth watching if you have ever wondered how the dinosaur extinction event could have taken place.
