Planet Dinosaur: profile - Mapusaurus
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 heard of Argentinosaurus, whilst geological evidence proves this creature was indeed a pack hunter. Comparisons are then drawn with modern day pack hunters. 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'.
Recount: Use as a basis for writing recount of an event or writing from the perspective of one of the Dinosaurs.
