9:40 am
such big animals swim so fast? the body of ophthalmosaurus is shaped a lot like a tear-drop on its side, rounded in the front and pointed in the back. we call this shape streamlined because water flows over it easily. a streamlined body, combined with a big, strong tail, allowed ophthalmosaurus to move really fast. a lot of big, fast-moving fishes alive today are streamlined, too, and for the same reason. some sharks can swim more than 30 miles an hour, and a large fish called the marlin reaches speeds over 60 miles an hour! that's as fast as a car goes on the highway! [horn honks] many living sharks share something else in common with ophthalmosaurus. they like to dive way down deep in the ocean! >> point of fact. dinosaurs did not ride in submarines. thank you. >> well, that's true, but ichthyosaurs like

[cheering] >> i'll see you real soon, pretty crest. hoo-ha! >> you sure will. bye for now, king. >> hi, there. i'm dr. scott the paleontologist. most paleontologists think that cryolophosaurus, like king, used their crests to show off to other cryolophosaurus. why would we think that? because plenty of animals living today, such as birds, use strange features to display to each other. most often it's the males--the boys, that is-- that do the showing off. here's a male frigate bird, which puffs out a big red pouch in its neck! and how about the amazing tail feather display of male peacocks? sometimes, the male birds do crazy dances
9:53 am
while they're showing off. check out the cool moves of this bird of paradise! in other bird species, the girl and boy birds dance together. get a load of this pair of albatrosses! since many birds living today use strange features and wild dances to show off, it makes sense that dinosaurs did the same thing. 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 cat: "hold me baaaaaack!"
