Creatures featured[]



  • Before Prehistoric Beast, This was the very 1st time where some of the Dinosaurs no longer drag their tails. They had them up in the air for balancing their heads.
  • The short film runs almost 12 Minutes. But in a different version, some of the dramatic sequences were cut out.
    • The 1st was the 17 seconds cut sequence of the Ornithomimus was caught on the horn of the angry mother Triceratops & the ostrich dinosaur was slowly dying & was removed from the mother’s horn. The other was the 20 seconds cut sequence of the Tyrannosaurus Rex successful grabbing the Edmontosaurus in his jaws suffocating the Duck billed dinosaur to death before the Rex devoured the Hadrosaur as his last meal. Some think it would be scary for younger viewers, But some people like the Full 11 1/2 Minute version with every single Stop Motion animated sequences.
