The Chicago Council on Science and Technology, National Geographic, and Project Exploration presented:
For a long time, the Age of Reptiles seemed to belong only to its “stars,” the dinosaurs — but not anymore. Thanks to strange fossils coming out of the Sahara and other places, we now know that it was a world full of bizarre and terrifying crocodiles as well — ones that not only rubbed shoulders with the dinosaurs — but sometimes ate them.
Welcome to the new crocodile Cretaceous… complete with tiny buck-toothed crocs, dog-like crocs, and terrifying triple-fanged nightmares that probably galloped after dinosaurs. Join C²ST and paleontologist Paul Sereno for an intense scientific journey to breathe life into these long extinct terrors — and recreate a lost world few even imagined existed.
