9:33 am
>> i sure am. that's where my family lives. i've been traveling on the dinosaur train to visit other oceans. >> heh heh. wait! there are other oceans? >> yeah, don! lots of oceans. the world is full of them. i've become interested in oceans. some are deeper, some are colder, some are warmer, some are saltier, some are even different colors. >> i like oceans, too! i like diving into them to catch fish. that's what we pteranodons do. >> how about you, buddy? >> me? i'm a t. rex. i'm a land animal. i've never been under the ocean before. >> oh, you're in for a treat. wait till you see what's under the water. you'll love it! >> really? it just looks flat. it doesn't look like there's anything down below there. >> oh, there is. stick with me, buddy. you'll see the sea. >> your home may be under the sea, but i observe that you can breathe air just like us. >> right. all elasmosaurus are air breathers.
9:34 am
>> does that mean you can run around on the land? >> with these flippers? i can barely get around. naw. i don't like to be on land. >> heh heh! that's funny. i don't really like to be in the water. >> what?! buddy, how can you not love the water? i love everything about water--being wet, playing in it. >> ha ha ha! >> swimming in it, fishing in it. >> i love fish! >> so elasmosaurus and pteranodons both love fish, but we're really different, too. elmer has a really long neck. >> yep! more than half of me is neck. hey! how you doing? >> [giggling] >> i have a hypothesis! >> you mean, an idea you can test? >> yep! since land animals like brachiosaurus use their long necks to reach plants that are way up high, maybe you can eat tall underwater plants. >> hmm. i'm not sure if that's why i have a long neck, buddy, but my long neck tells me all right! the tunnel is coming up. >> you're right, elmer. i see it, too.

9:37 am
>> [squawk] don, pteranodons aren't deep divers like elasmosaurus. >> yeah, and we sure don't have those kind of necks. >> yeah. oh, well. this is fun! >> hey, guys! what do you think? >> fantastic! but i guess my hypothesis was wrong. your long neck isn't for eating tall underwater plants. it's for fishing. >> ha ha! that's for sure! [train whistle blows] >> ha ha! >> there's the train whistle kids! we should get on board. let's say our good-byes. >> aw! >> hey! you guys swim fast. >> i wanted to say good-bye and get a breath of air. we can hold our breath for a long time but not forever. thanks for visiting! >> bye, elmer! bye, elasmosaurus family! >> all aboard.

>> hi, there. i'm dr. scott the paleontologist, and this is elasmosaurus. >> elasmosaurus. >> elasmosaurus! >> elasmosaurus. >> elasmosaurus! >> elasmosaurus was a giant marine reptile from the cretaceous time period. the word marine means that it lived in the ocean. now what do you notice first about elasmosaurus? >> it has a really long neck. >> absolutely. the neck of elasmosaurus was over 20 feet long. that's more than half the length of its body. can you think of a dinosaur that has a long neck? >> brachiosaurus. >> that's right. brachiosaurus and elasmosaurus both had long necks even though one lived in the water and one lived on the land. scientists think that the long neck of elasmosaurus helped it hunt for fish. >> let's go fishing!
9:40 am
>> wow! you guys are great swimmers. because of its large size, elasmosaurus was probably a slow swimmer, so it may have swum under large schools of fish and then used its long neck to reach up and grab its prey with those long, sharp teeth. >> whoa! >> ok. keep watching for more dinosaur discoveries. >> din >> ♪ of all the dinosaurs you might meet some are big, some petite but the way i make my day complete i stomp in the swamp with my dinosaur feet ♪ >> ♪ with my great big stomping dinosaur feet ♪ rawwr! yeah! rawwr! ♪ my great big whomping, stomping dinosaur feet ♪ rawwr! >> hello, folks. it's me the conductor. today, the

>> excellent hypothesis, buddy, and the creatures living in this neighborhood all share the place they live in together. it's called a habitat. >> a habitat! >> good word! >> it is a good word. to make a habitat work, you need everyone from the tiniest little plant to the biggest meat-eater. we all have an important part to play in what we call our ecosystem. >> ecosystem! an even better word. >> oh! ohh! ggg, ggg, ggg, ggg. >> hey! who's ready to play some games? >> we are! >> um, has the picnic started? >> actually, adam, we're about to have a race. >> good. count me in. just kidding. ha ha ha. >> [all laughing] >> bbbrrr! >> ok. who in our habitat is the fastest runner? >> i'd say the theropods like

>> yeah! >> [cheering] >> hi, there. i'm dr. scott the paleontologist, and this is an ecosystem. pteranodon terrace is an ecosystem. in fact everywhere you look in nature, you'll find ecosystems. an ecosystem is made up of the local plants, animals, and other organisms that link together to make a circle of life. the circle starts with plants, which get their energy from the sun. herbivores eat the plants, and then carnivores eat the herbivores. the remains of all these plants and animals then become food for insects and other tiny creatures, which make food for more plants. this happened back in the time of the dinosaurs, and it's still happening today. everything in an ecosystem is connected to everything else in a circle of life. >> circle of life!
