DISCOVERY TRANSPORTS VIEWERS BACK 65 MILLION YEARS WITH AN ALL-NEW TELEVISION EVENT: 'CLASH OF THE DINOSAURS'

Four-Part Special Shows Prehistoric Beings as Never Before´┐Ż From the Inside Out

For the first time in 65 million years, innovative imaging technology enables viewers to see deep inside the body of a dinosaur to reveal the secrets of these ultimate prehistoric survival machines. Combining cinematic photo-real 3D graphics and leading-edge anatomy and paleontology, CLASH OF THE DINOSAURS peels back the skin, muscles and bones to show how they survived in such a violent world. The four-part special premieres on Discovery Channel Sunday, December 13 at 9PM E/P with double-stacked episodes.

CLASH OF THE DINOSAURS reveals some surprising insights into how the world's greatest animals really worked. Carnivores were animals engineered for the sole purpose of hunting and killing prey. A Tyrannosaurus Rex could grow to be 18 feet tall and over 40 feet long, with jaws designed to tear flesh to shreds. While it had a reputation for violence and terror, the T-Rex is actually thought to have had a large brain capable of complex behaviors, especially when it came to parental care. It is thought to have been one of the most nurturing of all dinosaur parents, spending months caring for its eggs and defending its nest to help ensure the survival of its offspring.

For plant-eaters, protecting themselves against the carnivores meant evolving into some of the most well-armored animals in history. Herbivores of the Cretaceous period were built to take on the biggest teeth and sharpest claws nature has ever produced. But one herbivore was specifically designed to kill. The Ankylosaurus, at 30 feet long and four tons, had a tanklike body with three layers of armor and a head so well protected by thick bone that not even an adult female T-Rex could inflict a deadly bite. Even its eyelids were made of bone. The Ankylosaurus also had a powerful offensive weapon - a tail that could snap more than 45 degrees in either direction with a bony mass at the end, like a built-in sledgehammer. It could pack a punch powerful enough to shatter the leg bones of almost any predator - no matter how big.

CLASH OF THE DINOSAURS is produced for Discovery Channel by Dangerous Films Ltd., where Richard Dale is executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Bill Howard is executive producer.
