I purchased this film to show my students since we actually have a story in our readers called "Meet the Super Croc" and they LOVED it. We did not watch the entire film, I had to skip through because some of the content is a little "over their heads" and the film is also pretty long. (We aren't really allowed to show full length films) I wish I could have shown all of it since they were glued to the screen the entire time. This film actually shows scientist Paul Serena digging up the skull of the super croc in Africa and the process he goes through into figuring out how this giant creature might have looked and lived in prehistoric times. The students get to see how he compares the bones to crocodiles in the wild today and they get to see some real crocodiles being caught and tested for their bite strengths, length, size, color etc...it is really interesting! Just a fair warning, there isnt too much CGI content on the super croc itself so if you are expecting to see a lot of CGI effects of this animal, prepare not too. All in all the kids loved it, they talked about it all week and asked if they could see it again.

Paleontologist Paul Sereno is a legend in his field and these documentary episodes are simply fantastic. We're treated not just to the mind blowing world of hundred million year old dinosaurs, but also the difficult realities of digging for dinosaurs throughout Asia and Africa. In many of the areas they explore they're forced to contend with extremes of temperature and isolation. At times they even have to do so under armed guard due to violent outbreaks in the host country they're digging in. Unlike a lot of childish entertainment cartoon specials, this is true paleontological exploration.

My son and daughter enjoy watching this series. The visual effects really help visualize what these animals may have looked like. My wife and I also enjoy watching.

Overall, the documentary was very dry and didnt provide good information. It was more about a vacation the "dino hunter" took rather than actual dinosaur findings. Very boring very dry, not worth 3$ even.
