Throughout the week of August 13-17, 2012, "Big Big Dinosaur Week" will feature four new episodes that follow Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don as they discover the largest of the dinosaur species while exploring their natural surroundings. They'll also learn about nocturnal and diurnal animals, sunrises and sunsets, natural art and geysers. Additionally, “Big Big Dinosaur Week” will introduce a brand new train car on the Dinosaur Train – the flatbed car.
The kick-off episode begins aboard the Dinosaur Train when the Pteranodon family gets the idea to travel around and meet some of the biggest dinosaurs. They even sing the song, ‘The Biggest Dinosaurs’, before meeting Allie Alamosaurus, an enormous and friendly long-necked, plant eating sauropod.
"It was the biggest carnivorous dinosaur, but Spinosaurus wasn't a land animal," says University of Chicago paleontologist , a National Geographic Society who led the discovery of the new fossils. "This was a creature adapted to life in the water."
