A detailed profile of the Mapusaurus, a carnivorous dinosaur that lived around 95 million years ago. We discover its origins, its habitat, age, length and weight and watch as it hunts a herd of Argentinosaurus, whilst geological evidence proves this creature was indeed a pack hunter. Comparisons are then drawn with modern day pack hunters.
