Planet Dinosaur: profile - Gigantoraptor
A detailed profile of Gigantoraptor, the largest feathered creature ever discovered. We find out where this strange creature lived, what height they would grow to and how it used its vicious claws. Geological evidence proves how we know it actually existed and we are shown what this creature used its feathers for. See what happens to presenter Jem in the lab when he tries to find out how much force a Gigantoraptor egg could withstand. Created especially for Class Clips from the CBBC series Planet Dinosaur Files, first broadcast in December 2011.
To be used as a basis for research to create Dinosaur information cards, individual profiles, non-chronological reports or 'Prehistoric Podcasts'.
Can be used as a basis for discussion in to forces and the stimulus for similar weight-bearing experiments in science.
