9:40 am
wonder how argentinosaurus could have eaten enough food with such a small head. now, how do elephants reach high up into trees to find food? >> with their trunks. >> argentinosaurus didn't have a trunk, but it did have a long neck that it probably used to reach high into trees. and being such a gigantic animal, it probably spent most of the day just trying to find enough of the green stuff to keep itself going. ok, remember, get outside, get into nature, and make your own discoveries. >> hello, folks. it's me, the conductor. today the pteranodon family visits a geyser. that's a hole in the ground that shoots steam and hot water into the sky. so come on along with me on the dinosaur train. all aboard!

9:42 am
don. heh! now, take a gander at this. the inside of the earth is so hot, it even melts rock. and when the melted rock called magma gets close to the surface, it warms up the water that's under the ground. when that underground water gets really hot, the pressure grows and grows until the super-heated water explodes up into the air through holes and cracks. that's what we call a geyser. they shoot way up in the air. some go over 100 feet high. >> wow! >> whoo! >> i can't wait to get there and see these geysers for ourselves. >> heh heh. and we dads can't wait to show them to you, right, larry? >> abso-positvely-tutely, mr. p. heh heh heh! >> and where there's hot water coming out of the ground, you can also find what we call hot springs. >> hot springs? >> ooh, hot springs? >> yep. there are pools of warm and hot water that form near the geysers. but again, the water can get quite hot. so you
9:43 am
kids should only get in the pools with your parents' permission. >> yeah, right, right, but let's get back to those geysers! >> that shoot out of those super holes. >> [cheering] >> ooh. i've been to these hot springs before, mrs. pteranodon. they are simply amazing. some are hot, some are warm, some are cool. you just find the one with the perfect temperature and hop in. you will love them. >> this'll be perfect. we can relax in the pools while the dads and the kids watch the geysers. >> it's gonna be great. >> next stop, geyser gulch. geyser gulch station! >> [cheering] >> have fun at the geysers, and remember, you never know when hot water will shoot up in the air. you have to wait and watch. so be careful around those holes, especially you, mr. the don. >> ok, mr. the conductor. >> we will, mr. conductor! bye! >> whoo-hoo!
9:44 am
>> heh heh heh! >> oh. it's been forever since i've been in those pools. i surely would love to walk down to the pools and soak my toe claws in that bubbly water. but i'm the conductor. i can't. got to stay with the train. ooh, maybe i should. >> well, maybe you should! >> mother! must you come sneaking up on me like that? >> i can't help it. troodons are stealthy. ooh, i heard you talking to yourself, and i thought you were talking to me. ha ha ha! and i say, why not go down to the pools? take the afternoon off. i can fill in for you as conductor. haven't forgotten how to do it. ha ha ha! >> why not? i deserve an afternoon off from the dinosaur train once in a while. i got my own special pool that no one else knows about. i'll go there, and no one'll be the wiser. thanks, mom! >> have a great time at your secret pool, sonny boy. >> wow! >> [whistles] all right, team pteranodon and team lambeosaurus, let's

9:52 am
a geyser? to find the answer, we have to look way down deep inside the earth, where the rock is so hot that it becomes liquid or molten. when that molten rock rises close to the surface, it heats water until it becomes boiling hot. then it erupts out of the earth, and that's a geyser. there are about a thousand geysers around the world today, and about half of them are found in wyoming, in beautiful yellowstone national park. check out these yellowstone geysers. here's old faithful, the most famous geyser in the world. about every 90 minutes, old faithful shoots water around 150 feet in the air, and steamboat geyser shoots more than 300 feet into the air. ok, remember, get outside, get into nature, and make your own discoveries. announcer: pbs kids presents the all-new... you amazing cat. yes? announcer: "peg + cat." all: pirates love peaches. but they can't decide how to divide them up.
