The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

Do you think scientist only wrap skins around their skeleton ? Of course not, they're aware of how much soft tissue dinosaurs had, you probably haven't seen the scientifically accurate depiction of dinosaurs, this video is misinforming and should be deleted!

Idk why it makes me sad to think of all the forgotten species we’ll never get to see… Maybe it’s because I’m tired but I want to see them :( It also makes me curious to see how genuinely close we are to the real things in scientists interpretations and such.

These videos have started becoming more political. Educational videos that end on calls to action are not educational videos; they are targeted promotions. Its even more nefarious when the sponsor, think-tank, or supporting companies are not mentioned anywhere. Like I'm not sure who sponsored this video but given the call to expand nature sanctuaries, I'd assuming its a eco think-tank of some sort. Again no disclaimers but its pretty obvious from the call to action at the end that the intention of this video was not educational.

Raymond Christopher Tanto
it's like saying there are no trees , you've been lied to by the us government or something ... like literally there are more than 10,000 dino fossils found , how are you stil doubting dinos?

i have a theory that sauropods and ceratopsids are very aggresive, similiary to Zebras, Rhino's, Hippo's, Elephants, wildebeast ect. but i think the larger predators like allo's giga's and Trex's are more friendly.

The big bang is not the beginning of the universe as much as a seed is not the beginning of a tree. Time is cyclical not linear. It's mandatory we understand this as it is the basis for every other understanding of everthing esle.

Try to Buy and then Try Reading the Christianity Book that will Change your life Forever Called: "Holy Bible" (you Don't have to read all of the Scripture Reading in the Bible but at least Plenty in The Old and then Later on The New Testament) but the Best Part about this Book it Takes Away Confusions such as: "Why do Bad things Happen to Me?","Why am i So Terrified about Protecting my life even though it's just a Choice we need to Make a Decision on?",and More Questions that many People like the Scientists and Professors does Talk About, But Unfortunately (Since 1968 Not just in America but around the World) Doesn't Explain it in Biblical Evidences at all many Years After Charles Darwin's Evolution Theory Became More Active than not,but Don't be Afraid about that Because Reading the Bible will make your Life Better not making your Life Difficult

So from ym short researching period, watching documenteries and the like, even though it would take an unknown amount time, could we as a civilization take an egg from say a monitor lizard hatch it under a high oxygen environment mate with a lizard hatched under the same situation and "rinse, repeat" until we have what we know to be dinosaurs? I know this wouldn't happen in our lifetimes or next or even the one after that, but I do wonder what those lizards would look like with those stimuli undertaken.

We logically compare dinosaurs to birds in every way, except when we get to shrink wrapping. Why do we almost always bring up things like elephants and hippos for shrink wrapping dinosaurs? They do usually bring in swans, which is a good choice. But modern reptiles and birds are so much closer to dinosaurs than mammals. They should use penguins and frilled lizards instead.

Imagining the dinosaurs as bird like seems to be a red herring. Why compare them all to birds when we have their closest living relatives like salt water crocs, komodo dragons and tuataras. All of these are pretty bland looking reptiles.

7:45 That is one of the big advantages of being a carnivore. Meat has an incredibly high energy content so you can survive easily with just 1% of your bodyweight in food during the day. Herbivores need far, far more.

Computer modeling has greatly aided paleontology. Being able to have a program that can take an existing animal's bones and reconstruct it has been a huge boon and it's improving every year.

I honestly got so happy when I heard the narrator say “life uh, finds a way” because you can’t have a dinosaur themed video without a reference to jurassic park

Thank you so much for this! I HATE how nature documentaries these days show big cats etc just hunting and eating, hunting and killing and eating :/ That is a tiny bit of who they are. I miss the old docus that showed them playing and LIVING. That is exactly how dinosaurs are shown in docs, hunt, kill, eat, hunt, kill, eat. Its sad and honestly, disgusting. I hope thats not how humans are remembered someday... Oh, wait, most our written history is war, death and power hungry narcissists killing thousands of people so they can sit on a throne. :(
