NOVA | Bigger Than T-Rex

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Preview Meet Spinosaurus—the lost killer of the Cretaceous and the world’s larger predator ever.

Watch Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 11am on WMHT-TV​

Almost a century ago, paleontologists found fossil bones from a dinosaur that was bigger than Tyrannosaurus rex. The Spinosaurus fossils were destroyed in a WWII bombing raid. Now, the discovery of new bones in Morocco is reopening the investigation into this epic beast. Follow the paleontologists who are reconstructing this terrifying carnivore, a 53-foot-long behemoth with a huge dorsal sail, scimitar-like claws and superjaws. Bringing together experts in paleontology, geology, climatology and paleobotany, this special brings to life the lost world over which Spinosaurus reigned more than 65 million years ago.

Phylogenetic trees can tell us where medical problems come from, and how to fight them.
