Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, although they're presented in matter-of-fact, scientific fashion, some of the dramatizations in this stunning nature documentary may be too much for younger or more sensitive kids. Dinosaurs are shown attacking and eating one another, as well as peeing and pooping. Sauropods and others are discreetly shown coupled; mating rituals and habits are discussed.
