Format: DVD
"Extreme Dinosaurs" is an interesting BBC documentary about palaeontologists who through pain-staking detective work try to solve some mysteries surrounding Argentinosaurus and Giganotosaurus, two virtual monsters unearthed in Patagonia.

Frankly, it's almost unbelievable that a creature the size of Argentinosaurus could even have existed! The riddle scientists want to solve is whether this huge animal (a peaceful herbivore) had any natural enemies. The carnivorous Giganotosaurus (which was the size of a T-Rex) was nevertheless too small to take on a fully grown Argentinosaurus. One possibility is that Giganotosaurus was a pack hunter, but this is a controversial idea. Tyrannosaurus and similar dinosaurs are generally thought of as solitary animals.

The scientists featured in the documentary believe they have found tantalizing evidence that overturns the standard view. The fossilized remains of what might be a Tyrannosaurus pack have been unearthed in a remote region of Canada. More to the point, a newly discovered unnamed relative of Giganotosaurus in Patagonia might have lived in packs, too. Thus, a true "battle of the titans" between the super-sized Argentinosaurus and packs of marauding carnosaurs might actually have taken place... It seems even dinos need a dino-burger from time to time!

I admit that I really don't care whether or not Argentino and Giganoto fought the battle of the millennium, but some people seem childishly fascinated by such a prospect. Too much video games? I was more intrigued by the amount of research (and good luck) that went into this project. One of the palaeontologists managed to find the sensational Canadian site with the help of a century-old photo in National Geographic. Sherlock Holmes would have been impressed.

Overall, I think this was a relatively good documentary, so I give it four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent Dinosaur DVD... 22 April 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Like "Predator Dinosaurs," this DVD (i.e., Extreme Dinosaurs) is educational and interesting. Paleontologist Dr. Phillip Currie is shown at actual T-rex (Canadian) and South American sites in search of evidence that the tyrannosaurs and similar large predatory dinosaurs were social and lived in groups. This DVD does not have the CGI that "Predator Dinosaurs" or "Planet Dinosaur" have but, nevertheless, it is a very interesting and educational film, showing decent fossils in actual locations... some of them being of the largest predatory and non-predatory dinosaurs known so far. Personally, I think that with T-rex, especially, the younger T-rexes were much more agile, nimble, and predatory. The adults were sometimes predatory too, but mostly would often just use olfactory supremacy to smell, locate, and go to the kill of other dinosaurs (and then dominatingly take it away from them). When you are big, ferocious, and bulky -- with the nose/smell equivalent of 100 bloodhounds combined -- it's easier just to go and take another's kill than to chase after your own.
