Monsters Resurrected

ANIMAL PLANET – Mondays from 26 July, 9.30pm

Six ferocious prehistoric mega beasts are re-created and brought back to life from fossil clues to show how they might have lived and died, and what they might look like roaming our world today. Featured in this series is the Terror Bird, a bipedal monster that stood seven feet tall and weighed 140 kilos, with eyesight as sharp as a hawk and an 18-inch hooked beak which could bash in the skull of its victim. Also featured is the Spinosaurus, a carnivore twice the size of the T-Rex with a six-foot-high sail, long crocodilian skull and massive claws, and the Acrocanthosaurus, a prehistoric weapon of mass destruction that lived fifty million years before T-Rex and was loaded with the most powerful arms in dinosaur history, a scissor-like bite and a hi-tech neck brace which allowed the beast to kill prey ten times its size.
