9:39 am
>> well, every species has its own way of doing things, tiny and shiny, like the way they care for their babies. >> do you think the babies will be ok, mom? >> oh, i think so. they're protected with plenty of armor and should grow up to be happy and safe grown-up proganochelys someday. but--awk--i'm glad the pteranodons like to stay close and care for their babies. i can't imagine doing it any other way. i just love you kids so much. >> we love you, too, mom! >> ha ha ha! >> hey, don't forget me. rawr! >> hey, what am i, carrion? >> oh, we love you, too, dad! >> [laughter] >> hi there. i'm dr. scott the paleontologist, and this is proganochelys. >> proganochelys. >> proganochelys. >> proganochelys lived alongside the first dinosaurs in the triassic time period, but it wasn't a dinosaur. so what is
9:40 am
this animal? >> it's a turtle. >> yeah, proganochelys looks a lot like turtles living today, with a strong beak, sprawled legs, and a tough shell covering its back and belly. but this ancient turtle also had something that you don't see in any living turtles. >> a spiky tail. >> right. the tail of proganochelys was spiky with a bony club on the end, kind of like the armored dinosaur ankylosaurus. turtles are amazingly successful creatures. not only have they been around for millions of years, they still live all over, from hot deserts to chilly oceans, like this guy. and turtles come in many different sizes. some are only 4 inches long, and others are over 7 feet long. >> that's a big turtle! >> but no matter what their size, when turtles are on land, they walk very... >> slowly.
