Abstract:

Before dinosaurs a succession of fantastic animals and plants ruled the planet. Many of us are completely unaware that these creatures ever existed, or believe our planet was home to just worms and bugs. Yet there was a time when two-ton predatory fish came on land to hunt, when 26 foot sea scorpions sliced sushi in the shallows, when just on species of lumbering reptile represented eighty percent of all life. State-of-the-art digital technology breathes life into these creatures that dominated both land and sea for 250 million years.
