[laughing] >> hi, there. i'm dr. scott the paleontologist, and this is daspletosaurus. >> daspletosaurus. >> daspletosaurus. >> daspletosaurus. >> daspletosaurus, like tyrannosaurus rex, was part of a family of dinosaurs known as tyrannosaurs. daspletosaurus shared a lot of things in common with its famous cousin t. rex. both were bipedal, which means that they walked on two legs. both had tiny arms with only two fingers on each hand, and both had large heads with mouths full of large, sharp teeth, perfect for eating meat. [doorbell rings] >> point of fact--tyrannosaurus and daspletosaurus did not live at the same time. >> aw! >> thank you. >> well, that's a very good point...of fact. both of these
9:40 am
big carnivores lived during the cretaceous period, but daspletosaurus lived millions of years before t. rex, and there's another pretty big difference between these two tyrannosaurs. daspletosaurus was actually smaller than t. rex. a grownup daspletosaurus was about 30 feet long, almost as long as a school bus, but tyrannosaurus was much bigger, over 40 feet long, making it one of the biggest meat-eaters ever to walk on land. ok. keep watching for more dinosaur discoveries. ♪ all aboard all aboard let's take a ride on the dinosaur train here she comes right on time the dinosaur train's coming down the line ♪ >> all aboard! all aboard! >> ♪ rattle and bang rumble and roar she's huffing and a-puffing like a hurricane let's take a ride on the dinosaur train ♪ [cheering]
