Episode Summary

Prehistoric Monsters Revealed
Since the beginning of time, 99% of all the animal and sea creatures that ever lived on Earth have become extinct. Watch as a paleontological forensics team employs technological devices such as CT scanning, computer imaging and x-ray beam technology to shed new light on these strange and horrifying beasts. Freakish armored carnivores, deadly murderous insects, and oversized herbivores that weighed in the tons are brought back to life in an effort to understand how they lived, and why they died. See how most species were wiped out during one of the five major extinctions in Earth's history, when the chemistry of the entire planet was altered by impacts from a comet, an asteroid, and eruptions of super volcanoes, and learn how paleontologists discovered these long-dead creatures, how they make sense of the record they left behind, and why our notions of how these monsters looked and lived are constantly changing.moreless
