Dinosaur Revolution

A brutal encounter with an angry Sauropod prevents a young male Alosaurus from ever becoming king of the jungle. Abandoned by his mother and too injured to be a top predator, this male gets his meals from a watering hole where unsuspecting creatures come to nourish themselves.

Recommended for ages 8+.

Hi-def Cinema from Cinemuse. Produced by Discovery Communications. Running Time: 30 minutes
