SALT LAKE CITY, Shawwal 26, 1435, Aug 22, 2014, SPA -- A dry wash full of 112-million-year-old dinosaur tracks that include prints left behind by an ankylosaurus, dromaeosaurus and a menacing ancestor of the Tyrannosaurus rex, are set to be opened to the public this fall near Moab, Utah.
The list of dinosaurs in the movie include Ankylosaurus, Apatosaurus, Baryonyx, Dimorphodon, Edmontosaurus, Gallimimus, Metriacanthosaurus, Microceratus, Mosasaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Pteranodon, Stegosaurus, Suchomimus, Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex.
And shorter dinosaurs like the Ankylosaurus and the Stegosaurus fed on the low vegetation that was growing along the edges of streams and rivers or on the open plain.
The six-part journey into a lost world populated by majestic beasts, like the Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus and the gargantuan Brachiosaurus, captivated viewers and won numerous awards, including two BAFTAs and three Emmys.
We even get to enjoy a few tender moments as young and old Brachiosauruses smooch up for a quick cuddle in the late Jurassic era, and in the show's closing minutes as the terrifying mother Tyrannosaurus Rex nuzzles her child after saving him from the armoured Ankylosaurus.
Prof John Long of South Australia's Flinders University believe that a 33ft-long ankylosaurus, with spikes and armour, would have had a 6FT 6IN penis to bridge the gap when close to a female.
VELOCIRAPTOR (9781608705405), TYRANNOSAURUS (9781608705399), PROTOCERATOPS (9781608705382), MUTTABURRASAURUS (9781608705375), DIPLODOCUS (9781608705368) and ANKYLOSAURUS (9781608705351) each provide lively surveys of all the natural history known for each dinosaur.
Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Predators presents a "top ten" of ancient creatures: allosaurus, ankylosaurus, apatosarus, pteranodon, sarcosuchus, spinosarus, stegosaurus, tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, and velociraptor.
For example, here is the Ankylosaurus: aAnkylosaurus was protected in armor consisting of bone plates covered with skin or keratin, a tough protein.
Similar battles can be waged with Terrible Pterry ($14.99), with a helicopter that fires a net to ensnare a giant Pteranodon--just beware its grasping jaw and spring-out wings; Thundering Trike ($14.99), which features a horned Triceratops pursued by an off-road vehicle that is equipped with a spring-fired net launcher; Double Trouble Dinos ($7.99), with a net trap to ensnare an Ankylosaurus and a Dilophosaurus; and Raptor Capture ($7.99), which has a Jurassic Park ranger trying to capture two Velociraptors in a cage before their grabbing arms can snatch him up.
Ankylosaurus? Once upon a time most of us would have marked that down as the medical name for a sore foot.
For example, one trackway settled a controversy about whether the ankylosaurus, a sixteen-feet-long beast armored like a tank, could do more than plod slowly along.
