Paleontologists have always thought large dinosaurs avoided water, but new evidence in Spain demonstrates that some giant predators pursued their prey through fast-moving waters.
In remote Queensland, Australia, scientists are working to unravel a 100-million-year-old mystery. Their main lead is a site that holds the most remarkable set of dinosaur tracks that science has ever seen. It reveals evidence of hundreds of prehistoric animals fleeing across mud in the only dinosaur stampeded known to man. But why did they run? One set of monstrous tracks may be proof of a previously unknown killer. Join the team as they work together, using modern technology and gut instincts to solve this ancient whodunit and gain new insights into dinosaur behavior.
