Storyline

Arizona, USA- 220 million years B.C. In the blazing Pangaean deserts of the Late Triassic, the first dinosaurs appear. The episode chronicles the fate of a predatory Postosuchus driven from her territory, a herd of Placerias struggling to survive the drought and a couple of cynodonts- early ancestors to modern mammals- trying to protect their young from opportunistic Coelophysis. The dinosaurs have not yet grown into the dominant animals of Earth's ecosystems, but the giant Plateosaurus offers a glimpse of things to come. Written by Dutch90

Triassic era at Pangaea!!!
14 May 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

A bold project developed for a tireless efforts from BBC over Dinosaurs since the first unique continent that ever existed on Earth, Pangaea, this time was Triassic era around 230 millions of years, a dry land surround by many portions of forest all around, in this era the first Dinosaurs were to take over all planet for themselves, living together with giants mammals at its period of time, the forest has just coniferous trees and on the ground spreading by ferns, in this odd environment were several kinds of prehistoric animals, a beginning time which the Dinosaurs start to rule this promising land, as I'm a hungrier for new knowledge it was my favorite playground, supplying me all fresh information from this ancient era, despite the graphic computer still weren't totally advanced was enough to bring to us such brilliant experience!!
