9:40 am
warm oceans, usually in the summertime. they pick up water from the ocean and grow bigger and bigger. their powerful winds can get up to 200 miles an hour. when you look at them from above, hurricanes create the shape of giant whirlpools, and in the middle of the whirlpool is a calm center that we call the eye of the hurricane. hurricanes sometimes move onto land, carrying their heavy rains and strong winds. they can cause flooding, and the intense winds can damage trees and buildings and just make a huge mess of things. paleontologists like me have found evidence in ancient rocks of dinosaurs and other creatures all washed inland by giant storms, so we know that hurricanes happened during the age of dinosaurs, too, and it must have been pretty hard for animals living near the coast to survive such huge storms. so hurricanes have been part of nature for millions of years,
9:41 am
and they still are. so it's always good to be prepared. [wind whipping] [grunting] ok. keep watching for more dinosaur discoveries! >> hello, folks. it's me the conductor. today the pteranodon family meets two creatures who've had the adventure of a lifetime rafting across the sea, so come on along with me on the dinosaur train. all aboard! >> [humming] aah! >> don, what's wrong? >> my holes! they're all gone. >> you're right, don. what happened? >> well, the holes aren't gone, don. they're just filled in. it's from the hurricane that came through. it blew everything around and filled up the holes. >> and made an awful mess, but i know we can all pitch in and get things back to normal in no time. >> yeah. we can all help!
9:42 am
>> yeah! >> that's the spirit. with all of us working together, we'll get this cleaned up in no time. you ready? >> go, team pteranodon! >> ooh! this one will make our nest look beautiful. >> gangway! >> huh? >> look out! >> awk! >> hello. are you ok? >> well, hello, there. fancy meeting you here in the middle of the sea. >> um, you're not in the middle of the sea, sir. you're on the beach. >> the beach? why, so i am. tommy, we've made it to land! >> who are you talking to? >> hiya! i'm tommy, tommy ptilodus, not that you should be hearing from me. this big
9:43 am
lug should have introduced us after all we've been through. >> what? oh. everyone, this is tommy. >> ship has sailed, buddy boy. already done, but i have what you call manners. everyone, this is aiden adocus. >> oh, we know an adocus. do you know adam adocus? >> adam. adam. can't say that i do. might be a cousin, though. lots of turtles around the mesozoic. >> our friend adam doesn't live very far from here. are you from around here, too? >> well, that depends. >> yeah! on where here is. aiden and me hail from a place called appalachia. >> appalachia? >> it's not near laramidia, is it? >> laramidia? i've heard of that place. oh, i don't think we're close to home at all. >> sounds like you two have been on a really long journey. >> you couldn't have spent it all on that raft, could you? >> could we? you folks want to hear a story? >> yeah!
9:44 am
>> ok, then. let me tell you what happened. i was sitting, minding my own business. oh, wait. it all started with aiden. i should let him tell it. go! >> ok. well, was the day of the big storm. >> that's good. yeah. >> i remember it was around breakfast time. >> go faster. faster, faster. go. >> or was it lunchtime? >> breakfast. breakfast. >> i think it-- >> ok! i don't mean any disrespect, but let me tell your part. it will go faster. so aiden here, he's on the beach, folks, and it's a beautiful beach. he's doing turtly things when this giant storm hits. >> the hurricane? >> yeah, the hurricane. big wind, tons of rain, the works. you kids... >> buddy and tiny. >> buddy and tiny, you kids, pretend to be the wind and rain. go. >> whoosh! whoosh! >> shooo! >> so there's aiden in the middle of all this. he tries to take cover, but he can't. the storm's too rough. then a mighty wave rolls up on top of him. you. >> me? i'm don. >> don, be the mighty wave. >> shooooo!
9:45 am
>> nice. the mighty wave picks aiden up and carries him into the ocean. he can't swim at all, so, boy, did he get lucky. he sees it, the most beautiful thing he's ever seen. >> sees what? >> a floating raft of branches that are tangled together in the water. >> you want me to be that? >> it's the most important thing in the story. aiden grabbed hold, and he floated around all by himself for what seemed like ages. meanwhile, i'd been blown out to see by the storm, too, and didn't know what i'd do until the big guy saw me splashing like crazy in the water and paddled over so i could grab on. we thought we'd never find land, and now here we are. >> great story! >> you're too kind. oh, stop. go. >> here we are, far away from home with no way to get back. >> aw. that's sad. >> well, wait. i know exactly how you can get back home. >> the dinosaur train!

of a homebody. how about you, tommy? >> can't talk right now, aiden. can somebody grab my stomach when it finally arrives from that flight over here? >> well, hello, there, pteranodon clan. >> hello, mr. conductor! >> i see you have some new friends, an adocus and a ptilodus, right? >> whoa! he's good. >> mr. conductor, meet tommy ptilodus and aiden adocus. >> howdy! >> pleasure. >> mr. conductor, knows everything. >> except how the two of you got to pteranodon terrace. your two species normally come from appalachia. i'd guess that you might have traveled here on the dinosaur train, but i've never met either of you before. >> they didn't take the dinosaur train. they got swept out to sea in a hurricane and floated to pteranodon terrace on a raft made of sticks and branches. >> huh. i bet you've never heard anything like that before. >> actually, i have! >> uh-huh. >> natural rafts are one way creatures can end up far away
9:48 am
from their normal habitats. they get washed out to sea and can end up on a shore hundreds of miles from home. >> wow! we floated that far? >> yes, indeedy. you two are part of what we call animal dispersal. >> what's animal dispersal? >> it's how animals move from one home to another. birds and pterosaurs can fly, marine animals can swim, and land animals can walk. >> or fly if his sisters are carrying him. >> ha ha ha! >> oh, buddy! >> and every once in a while when there's a big storm, land animals can cross oceans on rafts of branches and sticks just like aiden and tommy did. >> you're very smart for such a youngster. >> ohh. >> ha ha ha! >> you really think the conductor is a youngster? >> compared to me he is, but are you smart enough to get tommy and me back home? >> sir, we are on our way right

9:52 am
>> we've been floating on this raft for months and months. >> we're floating all the way to appalachia, and i'm seasick. whoa, whoa! >> awk! pterosaur overboard! >> we're coming, don! >> [giggling] >> kids, ship ashore. it's time for dinner. >> [cheering] >> fishes! >> i can't wait to have fish! yay! >> hi, there. i'm dr. scott the paleontologist. did you know that some animals really do float long distances across oceans on natural rafts made of plants? take madagascar, a huge island off the coast of africa. most of madagascar's animals from cat-like fossas to monkey-like lemurs are not found anywhere else in the world. for a long time, scientists wondered how the ancestors of all these strange animals got from africa to madagascar. now we think they caught a ride on a floating tree
9:53 am
or raft made of plants and branches. these natural rafts would have floated all the way from the continent of africa hundreds of miles across the ocean to madagascar. this island is also famous for other strange creatures like pygmy hippos, whose ancestors probably swam to the island, and bats, whose ancestors could have flown there. ok. remember, get outside, get into nature, and make your own discoveries. announcer: labor day on pbs kids. hi, neighbor! one little idea... do something nice for your neighbor! is about to become one big celebration: neighbor day. neighbor day! we can do lots of neighborly things for our neighbors. announcer: don't miss this amazing musical event! ♪ you can do something nice for your neighbor ♪ thank you, daniel. it's neighbor day! announcer: it's neighbor day on "daniel tiger's neighborhood" monday, september 2nd on pbs kids or watch daniel any time at
