|Sixty-five million years ago, the dinosaurs disappeared from the Earth. But they did not leave an empty planet behind them. A succession of extraordinary creatures came and went over the following millennia. How much do we really know about these fascinating beasts?|
The award-winning team behind Walking with Dinosaurs and Allosaurus invites you to take a trip through a strange new world where flightless terror birds as tall as a man kill with a single snap of their powerful beaks. Early ancestors of man struggle for power and territory as they try to defend themselves from the famous saber-toothed tiger. And even the saber-tooth cannot take on the Glyptodon - the massive two-ton armadillo that is the most heavily armored mammal ever.
It's an extraordinary trip through history and evolution that begins with the end of the dinosaurs and ends with the rise of even more mysterious creatures: the first humans. So take the journey. Come walking with Beasts!

Editor's NoteThis nature documentary uses animation and hours of researched facts to attempt to recreate the age between the extinction of the dinosaurs and the dawn of the modern human. Among the most intriguing creatures are giant flightless birds, the saber-toothed tiger and the many predecessors to human beings. An incredible document of beasts generally passed over in evolutionary studies with amazing animation.
