Dinosaur Revolution is a four-part English nature documentary produced by Creative Differences. It utilizes computer-generated imagery to portray some dinosaurs and other animals from the Mesozoic era (and a brief scene of the Paleozoic and Cenozoic era). The program was originally aired on the Discovery Channel and Science.
Dinosaur Revolution was released to mixed reviews, with some citing the quality of its animation and a lack of seriousness in its tone as reasons for criticism. It was, however, praised for its educational content and general energy.
In the begining of Dinosaur Revolution is shown a cockroach almost getting stepped on by the gorgonopsid Inostrancevia in the Permian-Triassic extinction (250 M.y). The same Inostrancevia finds one other of it's kind eating a carcass. The two Inostrancevias fought each other with a competition of roars. Their fight continued without any physical contact. Suddenly, a meteorite crashes in the carcass and the two predators flee in the same direction. The first Inostrancevia is killed by a meteorite. Then the other is killed by a splash of lava as it gives out a loud roar. This will be the birth of Dinosaur Revolution.
Later, there's a herd of Ischigualastias in the vast Late Triassic desert of Argentina (230 M.y). In the middle of the herd there's a male Eoraptor, one of the first dinosaurs. The dinosaur pecks the giant dicynodont, but is always alert. But a Saurosuchus arrives. The male Eoraptor uses his speed to escape from the predator. But the predator is occupied with the dicynodont and the small dinosaur escapes without injuries. It is unknown if the Ischigualastia survived. The male Eoraptor hears calls of his species. Our male follows the sounds of his own kind. He finds a group of male Eoraptors singing to the females. Our male Eoraptor is on a reproduction spot with a group of males singing to the females with a mound of sand with a stick in the top. He understands the point and instinctively constructs one. With success our male just needs to wait for the females. The females arrived just in time. One female in special is the target for our male. Most of the females are first attracted by the other males. Our male attracts the female he was hoping to have, but she rejects him because of the bad construction. The same female goes searching for a new mate. However, our male insists in being with her. But the Saurosuchus attacks the reproduction spot and the female falls to the ground. The Saurosuchus attacks the group and the female that is on the ground is advised by our male. The big predatory reptile chases the small dinosaurs. Then the two Eoraptors hide in a burrow to be safe from the dangerous Saurosuchus. The big reptile tries to ferret out the dinosaurs without any success. In the burrow, the male Eoraptor is attacked by a Probelesodon. Our male kicks off the cynodont. The Probelesodon is eaten by the Saurosuchus and the big reptile leaves satisfied. Then the two Eoraptors mated and exited the burrow.
Later, the two Eoraptors had eggs but those were eaten by a trio of Probelesodons. However the female kills two of them, one is just chased away. Just one egg hatched, and from there gets out a young male. A Probelesodon is stalking the young male. The young is always tripping and is a easy target for the cynodont. But the father appears just in time, and kills the Probelesodon. The male protects the baby just like many modern birds. The baby follows his father and the two call to the female. The female responds but their calls were heard by the Saurosuchus. The male comes back with his baby and show him to the female. The family finds a dead Ischigualastia in the way. The Eoraptor family sees a carcass of an Ischigualastia guarded by the Saurosuchus. The giant predator chases the family. But the Saurosuchus falls down a cliff with the young Eoraptor. The giant reptile did not take any time to rise up. The young Eoraptor was the last to get up. But just when the Saurosuchus was about eat the baby, a trio of Ischigualastias approached the predator. The herbivores began to attack the Saurosuchus. In the middle of all the battle, the baby was there risking to be trampled. The big predator and two of the Ischigualastias died, but one limping individual survives. There was something moving under the Saurosuchus’s throat. It was the baby that was below the big reptile's throat. The young male Eoraptor learned the lesson: stay close to his parents.
Later is shown a male Gigantoraptor in his display spot in a open area of the Mongolian Late Cretaceous (70 M.y). The male shows is feathers and his scaly crest to a passing female. The male begins to dance. Just like a peahen, the female is not interested on the color of the male, she wants the most beautiful male to his generation become also very beautiful. But the male spot is fragile. The giant oviraptorosaur leaps and his ground becomes more fragile. The reason is the existence of an entire family of Zalambdalestes underground. The frightened mammals run for their lifes and try to escape from a shortcut. But the exits were almost all blocked. A family of Zalambdalestes try to escape from their burrow almost to crumble as the Gigantoraptor continues to march above it. The mammal family needed to across a bridge of roots risking to fall. But when they across there's now wayout. Finally, the giant dinosaur makes a hole in the burrow with his foot. The male made his display spot in the wrong place. The female retreats because of the bad performance. The family of Zalambdalestes climbed the foot of the Gigantoraptor, freeing it in the process, but just one baby didn't make it. The big male rose up and followed the female. The mother Zalambdalestes recovers the baby and goes back to the surface. With the mammal family recovered, the Gigantoraptor males began to make a frenzied display to a female.
Later, is shown a female Cryolophosaurus checking her eggs in a Antarctic forest of the Early Jurassic (188 M.y). The male comes back with a fern in his mouth to put it on the nest. After that, another male appears close to the couple. The rival is larger and with bigger crests and he easily can inspect the other male's territory. He is interested in the female, and to have her, he needs to fight with the smaller male. First, the rival changes his normal color to a strong red. The female then nudges the owner of the territory, who approaches, and then changes his color to a strong red as well. Then they fight each other, beginning with wrestling, and the rival knocks down the smaller male . The smaller one hits the rival with his head. But the rival overthrows him to the ground for a brief time, before the smaller one gets up again. The small male Cryolophosaurus then circles the rival, who kicks him to the ground, and then jumps on him, and tears off his crests, winning the battle. The smaller male lies down in pain. The rival then throws the smaller male’s crests onto the ground and approaches to the female. The big male inspects her eggs and eats them. The bigger Cryolophosaurus retreats with proud. The female sees the eaten eggs and her maternal care wasted. The male stays laying down looking to his female following a new mate.
Later, is shown a group of Quetzalcoatlus flying above the Great Plains of North America, which were flooded by a vast inland sea, and in that ocean there is a female Mosasaurus trying to give birth in the Late Cretaceous (68 M.y). The adult female gives birth to two babies that can successfuly breed air in the surface. But three Cretolamnas appear and eat the two babies. The female passes through a shoal of ammonites and tries to give birth to more babies. Three more babies born. Just one has successfuly breathe because the other two were eaten by Cretolamnas. The surviving baby hides in the corals to be safe from the sharks. A baby Mosasaurus hides from sharks in the corals and calls for his mom. The gigantic sea reptile begans to chase the sharks. She kills two sharks to protect her baby. Now most of the sharks are killed and the baby is safe. Just missing one more Cretolamna. The last shark is shattered in many pieces of flesh. The Mosasaurus baby eats the rests of the dead shark. The mother even gives birth to more one safe and sound baby.
Back to the Antarctica there's a swarm of mosquitoes flying above the forest. The insects kill a monitor lizard with diseases transmited by them. Not far away, there's a male Glacialisaurus inspecting a neighbour herd. He approaches to lick the sap of the trees but is distracted by one of the herd's females. The male licks the female's snout covered with sap, but is interrupted by the local bigger male. The local male is to big and drives away the intruder. But the prossauropod is driven to the mosquito territory. The male Glacialisaurus goes to a muddy river, but there is a Cryolophosaurus stalking him. The herbivore notices the ambush. One male Glacialisaurus is now in trouble, because he’s pursued by a Cryolophosaurus and then the swarm of mosquitoes. The predatory theropod dinosaur waits for the insect diseases to take effect on the male. When the Glacialisaurus accidentaly swallows a mosquito, he flees. The herbivore scratches on a fallen tree. When the Cryolophosaurus arrives and attacks, the Glacialisaurus loses balance and falls in the muddy river. Now the mosquitoes switch to the predator. The confused predator, trying to get away from the insects, run accidentaly to the Glacialisaurus herd and spooks the leader male, who thinks that it’s a hunt and flees. The females didn't run because they thought that the Cryolophosaurus wanted the leader. With the herd unhindered the new male, covered in mud, looks superior and the mud also repels the mosquitoes. The male has become the new leader of the herd. The male finally vomits the mosquito that he swallowed. In the end, there is the Cryolophosaurus with the swarm running with the old Glacialisaurus leader.
The Watering Hole Edit
In the Portuguese night there is a mother Allosaurus and her chicks sleeping and an Ornitholestes begins to make loud calls in the Late Jurassic (150 M.y). The mother roars to silence the small carnivore, but the Ornitholestes continues and the mother gets up and decapitates it, and as soon as she heads back to sleep, another Ornitholestes begins to make more calls.
Then is shown a herd of Dinheirosaurus walking to the watering hole. Not far away there's a young Allosaurus called Broken Jaw who is playing with an Ornitholestes skull. The mother is with a carcass in her mouth and then feeds the other chicks. However Broken Jaw is interested in playing with the skull. The skull constantly bounces through the prarie. But his toy hits the foot of a giant Dinheirosaurus. One young male sauropod named Woodstock approaches Broken Jaw. The young is not happy with him. Woodstock prepares to attack. His whip like tail can break a predator's jaw. That's exactly what happened with Broken Jaw, hence his name. A young Allosaurus broke his jaw by a whip like tail of a Dinheirosaurus and this gave him his name Broken Jaw. His mother approaches seeing Broken Jaw on the ground severely injured. Sorry, the mother Allosaurus abandons him. But Broken Jaw continued calling for his mother, but the attempts were unsuccessful. When he realised that, he just used the technique of surprise to get some food.
Broken Jaw survived to the adulthood. He is seen with the open mouth and a Rhamphorhynchus pecking pieces of meat on his teeth. He lives close to a watering hole which is rich in prey. But all the animals are alert when the giants of the watering hole arrive. The Dinheirosaurus is one of the favourite prey of Broken Jaw. In the herd there's the same individual that broke his jaw with his tail. Even Woodstock recognizes him. Broken Jaw has to be careful with him. He pretends to be disinterested. But Broken Jaw stalks the young Dinheirosaurus when there's no guard. He gets closer and closer to the prey. However, Woodstock spots him, and jumps into action. The Allosaurus called Broken Jaw was stalking a young Dinheirosaurus but Woodstock threatens him with his powerful tail. The tail even destroyed a small dead tree! But Broken Jaw bites the end of Woodstock’s tail. The big predator rips the tail apart with his strong jaw. Then he gets back to his post to eat it. Even the Rhamphorhynchus gets right to eat some crumbs of his meal. But not far away there's a new predator, larger and more agressive that can kill easily many armored Miragaias.
In the Broken Jaw's post there are lizards, cockroaches and other small creatures when the predator is sleeping. When he is not hunting, just leaves the post to drink. When Broken Jaw leaves, an Ornitholestes inspects his territory to find some prey. The small carnivore chases a lizard but the prey escapes. But it’s quickly interested in the Rhamphorhynchus which is sitting on a tree eating some insects. To catch its prey, the Ornitholestes climbs the tree. The pterosaur passes through a hole in the tree and the theropod tries to attack it, but the theropod dinosaur has its head stuck in the tree. It tries to get free with all of its strength. Once the Ornitholestes gets free it accidentally falls on Broken Jaw´s back. Broken Jaw chases the Ornitholestes until it hides and he loses track of it. Broken Jaw, then, is interested in the young Dinheirosaurus which is separating from the herd to explore. The Allosaurus begins to stalk his prey. Not far away, the Rhamphorhynchus is feeding again on insects in the tree. He catches a cockroach but the insect falls in the ground. The Ornitholestes catches the pterosaur, but in a bad moment because a giant predatory Torvosaurus appears, drooling next to them and scaring them off. Even the cockroach is forgotten by the Rhamphorhynchus. The Torvosaurus is larger and even surprises the giant Dinheirosaurus. Broken Jaw has interrupted the chase, preocupied with his territory which could be easily possessed by the new predator.
Broken Jaw watches a Miragaia family walking in a open area, he knows that this armored animal is not for him. Suddenly, the Torvosaurus kills a baby without problems and this surprises the Dinheirosaurus which are also preoccupied with the new larger predator. Broken Jaw is more worried because he can lose his place of top predator. In the watering hole the Miragaia family have just now two babies. Broken Jaw gets out of his post to drink. But when he goes back to his post he realizes that is already occupied by the giant Torvosaurus. To see off the predator, Broken Jaw tries a technique called a threat display, and he does this by whacking his tail and making a series of threat calls. The Dinheirosaurus look on. But the Torvosaurus continues indifferent. Broken Jaw continues threatening but without any progress. He then nudges the giant predator and the Torvosaurus’s fury is activated. The giant killer attacks Broken Jaw and bites his pelvis. But as it tries to disembowel Broken Jaw, the Ornitholestes and the Rhamphorhynchus distract the Torvosaurus and Broken Jaw escapes, leaving a trail of blood. Broken Jaw hides to lick his wounds, while the Rhamphorhynchus starts cleaning the Torvosaurus‘s teeth. Now there's a new king in the watering hole.
Now, the new king has the right to hunt Dinheirosaurus. The adult Dinheirosaurus, however, is watching to Broken Jaw where actually is the Torvosaurus the main threat. The young sauropod is always the main target. The young comes to drink in the watering hole. But the adult Dinheirosaurus saw the Torvosaurus ambush. The adult blocks the giant carnivore. The sauropod drives the Torvosaurus away. But the Torvosaurus hasn’t learned the rules of the watering hole and almost steps on a baby Miragaia and one of the angry adults hits it hard in the leg with its thagomizer. Surrounded by the Miragaias and Woodstock, the Torvosaurus gets annoyed and tackles Woodstock, and runs to his child. The Miragaias flee. It catches up to the young Dinheirosaurus and knocks it down, but the baby defends itself. Broken Jaw has recovered and grabs the Torvosaurus’s neck and the large predator shakes him off. But before it disembowels Broken Jaw, Woodstock charges at the Torvosaurus and then rears up onto his hind legs and crushes down upon the Torvosaurus, smashing and killing it instantly. After all this, he makes a truce with Broken Jaw. Now it‘s time for Broken Jaw to choose between his prey or his enemy. The dead Torvosaurus seems to be the best option. So Broken Jaw eats the dead corpse of a larger predator.
The dead Torvosaurus is now decomposed and Broken Jaw moves away a pair of Draconyxs to drink in the watering hole, which is almost dry. But Woodstock rests around the watering hole blocking the way of Broken Jaw. Broken Jaw gets to the other side and nudges Woodstock‘s tail out of the way to take another drink. Suddenly, the land shakes. Is a approaching herd of Lusotitans. These giants are even bigger than Dinheirosaurus. First, the brachiosaur sauropods begin to drink what remains in the watering hole. Then, they go away and migrate to find more food and water. The local creatures will not drink anything from the watering hole now. With the Lusotitans other creatures, such as Dinheirosaurus and Ornitholestes, go along with them. The small theropod just migrates because the Rhamphorhynchus also follows the herbivores. But Broken Jaw stays on his territory. Now he just needs to wait. Later, he feels a drop of rain on his nose. The rain finally came. And with the rain come new prey to keep alive the king of the watering hole!
Survival Tactics Edit
In the begining of the episode is shown a cockroach climbing to a turtle shell in the desert of Utah, but a Utahraptor grabs the small reptile and the insect escapes in the Early Cretaceous (126 M.y).
In Utah there's a herd of Cedarosaurus. One of them stops to smell a dung heap. Not far away there's a brown pack of Utahraptors. The pack is looking to the Cedarosaurus. Predators and prey begin to walk. Then, they begin to run. The Cedarosaurus try to run away from the Utahraptors. Then a new pack of Utahraptors (grey now) are also interested in the sauropods. The brown pack continues to chase the Cedarosaurus. But quickly the two rival packs are now running side by side. Both of the packs want to get first to the prey. Finaly the grey pack manage to bring down a young Cedarosaurus, but the brown pack arrives and fight with the grey pack. The herd now stops and sees the fight between the predators. The young Cedarosaurus is forgotten and he walks to his herd but a crocodyliform grabs his back leg and this alerts the raptors that something is wrong. One Utahraptor blinds the giant reptile in the right eye and the crocodyliform escapes. Before the young being almost killed by the raptors, the adult Cedarosaurus shoots some of the predators with the feet and neck. Now the young is safe in the herd. One of the Utahraptors thrown by the Cedarosaurus fell in the lake and has been eaten by the crocodyliform as revenge for poking out its eye.
In Madagascar there's a Rahonavis in a tree branch singing in the Late Cretaceous (70 M.y). The small raptor glides to the back of a Rapetosaurus. The sauropod stops to eat some fallen fruits. The Rahonavis lands to eat some scrabs of fruit. Suddenly a Majungasaurus appears and almost steps the raptor to hunt the Rapetosaurus. Later, appears the two babies of the giant Majungasaurus. They chase the Rahonavis but the bird-like dinosaur climbs the tree and escapes. The young theropods continues to smell the raptor. Suddenly, two long tongues capture the youngs. There were two big Beelzebufos that eat baby dinosaurs. A herd of Rapetosaurus approach and the Rahonavis glides to their back. The raptor catches a ride in the herd. In the middle of the herd, one of the Beelzebufos is smashed and his body will fossilize.
In China there's a herd of Shunosaurus foraging in the Middle Jurassic (170 M.y). There's one specific individual called Shroomo. He is always following the herd but is more curious than other Shunosaurus. The adults alert the younger individuals to never eat the wrong mushrooms. But Shroomo was not in the supervision of the adult and the teenager Shunosaurus eated the mushrooms, hence his name. But he is now seeing some hallucinations. Shroomo is confused with his tail club and even with his herd friends. Suddenly, a pair of Sinraptors drives away the Shunosaurus herd. But Shroomo stays in his place, oblivious to the danger. But the teenager sauropod feels the presence of the Sinraptors. So, Shroomo flees. The predators follow the prey. The confused Shroomo falls down a cliff but his tail club become stuck in a rock. The Sinraptors arrive to the vulnerable Shunosaurus. The male predator steps down to kill Shroomo. But the herbivore deviates his neck away from the predatory Sinraptors. Suddenly the tail club gets free, whacking the female Sinraptor and both Shroomo and the male Sinraptor fall down the cliff together. Shroomo awakes without hallucinations in the bottom of the cliff. He survived the fall because the male Sinraptor stop the falling. Shroomo finally reunites with his herd. He has learned the lesson: never eat the wrong mushrooms.
In the tropical forests of China there's two Guanlongs in search for a meal in the Middle-Late Jurassic (160 M.y). Not far away, there's a Castorocauda chasing for a jumping fish out of water. The two tyrannosauroids try to catch the aquatic animal. The Castorocauda runs to the smaller outways to escape from the bigger dinosaurs. He hides in a hollow tree log. When one of the Guanlongs watch the hiding Castorocauda, the furry mammal sprays a liquid that burns the eyes. The other Guanlong made the same error. The hurt Guanlong throws the hollow log and the mammal with his tail. The hollow log falls in the water and traps a fish. The night arrives and a Volaticotherium glides on the moon light to eat some insects. The Guanlongs are now normal and try to catch the gliding mammal. The dinosaurs can't get to the Volaticotherium. In the tree the mammal is safe. But the predators realize that the Volaticotherium glides a little bit lower in a rock in the middle of the lake. So the Guanlongs try to catch the mammal in the rock. The Volaticotherium begin to glide. So one of the Guanlongs open the mouth, in hopes that the mammal lands on it. However, it lands on the Guanlong's crest. But the rock is actually a sleeping Mamenchisaurus. So the giant sauropod gets up and the three animals are now on his back. The Mamenchisaurus awakes in the middle of the lake. However, all that frenzy confusion on his back doesn't affect the sauropod. Finally, the Volaticotherium glides away from the Guanlongs. The predators jump to a real rock in the middle of the lake. But now they are surrounded by many crocodyliforms and probably they will not survive, as explained by the narrator.
In the desert of Mongolia there's a old Protoceratops walking alone in the Late Cretaceous (75 M.y). His old body is atracting a group of azhdarchids circling around him. He watches a pair of Velociraptors hunting a female Protoceratops and her baby. The raptor jumps onto the female's back. The Velociraptor kills the female using his claw to perforate her neck. The baby is now in a big trouble! So the Velociraptor chases the young. The young hides in a burrow, but it is not enough to escape from the raptor. Another raptor approaches the prey. But the old Protoceratops appears and the Velociraptors try to kill him. But the herbivore is to strong for the raptors. So they run to eat the dead female. The Velociraptors eat the corpse with the azhdarchids. Instinctively, the young follows the old Protoceratops for protection. For some days, he stays along with the old male. One day the Velociraptors arrive and try to chase the two. But just in time a Protoceratops herd approaches and drives away the two raptors. Now the young has a new home in the herd. But the old male continues is travel alone. Finally, followed by a group of azhdarchids, the old male is guide to a Protoceratops cemetery. Eventually, the old male lies down and dies.
In a beach cliff of Brazil there's a colony of Anhangueras in the Early Cretaceous (125 M.y). In a Anhanguera nest there's a mother with a fish on her mouth and three babies screaming for food. But the mother eats the fish and the babies stop to scream. To get food, the mother needs to learn her babies to fly and catch food for themselves. The first young learned how to fly. But he hits on the cliff's wall and dies. Now the next young needs to learn. Amazingly he learned how to fly but another Anhanguera eats him. The last young is that we will follow. Our young is thrown by his own mother to the skies. He is falling down the cliff now. He falls down to the beach and survived. He sees his sibling dead being eaten by a group of crabs. One of the crabs nips our young pubis and the Anhanguera chases it. But a Notosuchus appears and interrupts the Anhanguera chase. The crocodyliform chases the pterosaur. The Anhanguera is in trouble because he is chased into the jaws of another Notosuchus that is in the way. He is approaching more and more to the crocodyliform. Suddenly he uses his wings to take flight. Finally, our young can fly and escapes from the Notosuchus. Our young hunts a crab and comes back to the nest. He eats his prey and his mother is surprised. But she wants to know for sure that he is really independent. She waits until he finishes the meal. Then she throws again his baby to the air and our young prove that he is able to live on his own!
End Game Edit
10 years before the impact, two Tyrannosaurus rex, Stumpy and Jack Palance, are fighting in a Montana beach in the Late Cretaceous (65 M.y.a, an now outdated estimate). Jack Palance threats defecating to determine his territory. Then the two T-rexes charge into each other, and Jack Palance eats the right arm of Stumpy. The second male is thrown down by the bigger one. When Stumpy gets up and leaves, Jack Palance reclaims his territory in the beach, roaring in the process.
In the North American forest, Stumpy is back to his territory with the cut arm. In his territory, there's Tinkerbelle, his mate, and their two babies which are very playful. The two babies are chasing a Pachycephalosaurus. But the small herbivore is too fast and the baby T-rexes are now lost in the forest. But Jack Palance appears in the Stumpy's territory. The intruder male, then, eats the two babies. A glimpse of three Quetzalcoatlus appears flying above the forest. Stumpy and Tinkerbelle are trying to find their babies but they just found some drops of blood. Then, they realize that the babies are now eaten by their rival, causing Tinkerbelle to mourn. When night falls Stumpy comforts Tinkerbelle.
Tinkerbelle continues despondent by the loss of her babies. The two Tyrannosaurus rex decide to hunt. The two carnivores spot a herd of Triceratops. They kill one of them. Stumpy and Tinkerbelle, then, eat the dead Triceratops. But Jack Palance appears on the scene. At the begining, the couple do not see the intruder, and it‘s not long before they realize his presence. Stumpy prepares to defend his territory. Jack Palance scratches first the ground. Then, Stumpy threats hitting the tail on the ground. As the two tyrannosaurs charge, Stumpy bites his rival’s snout, and Jack Palance bites Stumpy's neck. But the intruder wants to rip his arm just to be interrupted by Tinkerbelle who bites the intruder's leg. Stumpy recouvers and is back to the battle. He pushes Jack Palance. Finally the rival is killed when he falls to the Triceratops carcass and is impaled through the neck on the horn (similar to what happened on Last Day of the Dinosaurs). At night, the two T-rexes are now safe about their territory. They comfort each other. Finally, they mate, making sure of a new generation.
Two years later, Tinkerbelle is laying a clutch of eggs. Stumpy wants to get closer but he is quickly driven away. The nest is made with dung, just like modern swifts. But the nest is made close to a cave which can hide some nasty egg thieves. The rain as come. But the water can sufocate the embryo inside the egg. But Tinkerbelle ears the water inside the nest, so she makes a hole on it. So the water gets out and the eggs are back on safety. But in the same night, a pack of Troodons approaches to the nest. Stumpy appears just in time and catches a Troodon which was grabbing an egg. Months later, the egg is now already to hatch. But the parents realize that just one egg has survived after a mammal attack. Tinkerbelle's hatches the egg in her mouth simliar to a crocodilian and then out comes a baby Tyrannosaurus named Junior. The couple is now happy with their new feathered baby. But we can not forget about the asteroid which is almost to collide with the Earth in few years.
Years later, in the day of the asteroid impact, an Ankylosaurus is awaking from a long sleep. This armoured herbivore is constipated but it’s not the disease which will kill him. The herbivore walks to the beach. He is finding for some berries around. The asteroid is becoming closer and closer. A passing Pachycephalosaurus hides from a pair of Troodons hiding in the belly of the giant herbivore. The raptor is almost to kill the small herbivore. But suddenly, the Ankylosaurus sits on one of the Troodons. The prey escapes and, when the armoured herbivore gets up, the Troodons stop to comfort each other. The family of T-rexes see the Ankylosaurus but they know that he is to much armoured for them. Just Junior, which is now a teenager, is curious about him. However, the Ankylosaurus is not a really safe toy for the young T-rex. The Troodons are watching him. Junior bites the Ankylosaurus tail club. Then, he pays the price by the swing of the herbivore's tail. But Junior is quickly interested in the Troodons. The asteroid is almost to collide with our planet. Just before, the Ankylosaurus goes sleeping and Junior continues to chase the Troodons. The giant 10 km wide rock continues to fall to Earth and the life continues oblivious to the danger. Just in time, Junior and the Troodons hide in a cave. Outside of the cave, many living things are killed. The asteroid impacts with the force of millions of atomic bombs. After the chock waves, the strong burning cloud of dust destroys almost everything around. This will determine the end of the age of the dinosaurs. And those who survived also needed to face with dangerous tsunamis. And also the cloud of dust makes the planet a total grey world. Strong earthquakes shange also the dark face of the planet. And even strong vulcanic eruptions (mostly in India) aterrorizes the surviving life.
In the dark planet the ashes covers most of the Earth's surface. But Junior has survived all the adversities against him. He sees his parents dead by the burning cloud of ash. A small mammal runs in front of him, and Junior attempts to catch it, but falls of a ledge and dies. In the mating season of the Troodons they need to adapt and continue against the adversities. One particular pair not yet laid a single egg. But, suddenly, a dust storm forces them to hide on a cave. They must stay here to survive from the cold nuclear winter. The female finally laid some eggs but she needs to hunt, so the male incubates them. After chasing a cockroach she is driven to the Junior's carcass. The dead Junior provides food for many time. But she is so interested in the carcass that will discover a very big disappointment. She even sleeps close to her food suplpy.
With the loss of sun, comes the snow and our Troodon female awakes in a polar habitat. She finds the male, as normal, sitting in the nest. But she realizes that he is actually frozen. With the frozen male, all the eggs have become frozen as well (except one). To make sure that her egg is safe she grabs it and walks to the dead Junior. She incubates the egg in the warm mouth of Junior. In this frozen world the Troodon is almost close to the extinction. But the Dinosaur Revolution continues because the dinosaur legacy continues with the birds (enantiornithes, geese, hawks, sparrows...) until today and possibly for much, much further.
