Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this educational series recreates some very intense dinosaur battles, using computer graphics to show them fighting to the death. It's more educational than scary, but some of the scenes do get rather gory, including shots of bloody dino fangs and images of the winners feasting on their victims' carcasses. But the CGI blood and gore probably won't scare dino-loving young viewers -- in fact, it may even be a key draw for some of them, pulling them in as they learns some pretty complex scientific concepts.
- Sexual Content
- The scientists often discuss dinosaur mating habits in clinical detail.
- Plenty of graphic computer-animated dino-on-dino action, often including fights to the death. There's biting, clawing, scratching, and more, and the losers usually end up as lunch. There's some blood, but it's also CGI.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- The show is quite educational, with the experts explaining in fascinating detail the instinctive drives that prompted dinosaurs to attack each other (though these needs rarely go beyond mating or feeding).
- Many of the experts are identified by their university affiliations.
