A four part series that uses 3-D
animation and real life settings to illustrate what dinosaurs and
their behavior may have looked like 70 - 80 million years ago.
Narrated by Christian Slater, Little Das' Hunt (2nd episode), was
shot in High Definition TV entirely on location in Lincoln
As a young male, it's Das' (Daspletosaurus)
job to herd unsuspecting prey towards the rest of the pack. But
he's easily distracted and ruins several hunts getting him in deep
trouble with his mother, the pack leader. When a volcano
threatens, the dinosaurs are unprepared.
Daspletosaurus was nearly 30 feet
long and weighed 6,000 pounds. Its teeth were curved like daggers,
and serrated, and it may have fed on the armored ceratopids.

during many of his adventures. But was he a cold-hearted killer?

Wild West Historian Drew Gomber.
