9:36 am
>> why were you hiding in the water then? >> well, it's hot out, and crocodilians need to stay cool. i like to lie in the water almost completely covered like this, and also i'm actually kind of shy. >> really? sometimes i feel shy around strangers, too. >> see, deana and other crocodilians can float so that just their eyes and nostrils are above the water. that way, she can look around and breathe without being easily seen. >> wow! she swims with her feet and tail moving under the water, but it looks like there's hardly anything there. >> at first, we thought you were a log. no offense. >> none taken. that's how i hunt. i lie very still like this. >> [gasp] >> what a lovely-- >> hello! >> ba-kaaaah! >> it's ok! she already had a big lunch! >> oh, well. i can't blame him

9:39 am
>> all aboard! [whistle blows] >> bye! >> hi, there, i'm dr. scott the paleontologist. deinosuchus was a huge, 40-foot long carnivorous crocodile that lived in the cretaceous time period. this giant croc was a reptile but not a dinosaur. deinosuchus was easily big enough to feed on dinosaurs, but many paleontologists think it fed mostly on turtles. either way, deinosuchus was one of the largest crocodiles that ever lived and definitely way bigger than any crocodiles alive today. about half the length of this ancient croc was its massive tail, which helped make deinosuchus a strong swimmer. most crocodiles are carnivores, or meat-eaters. they've been around for millions of years, long before the first dinosaurs, and they're still very successful today. not all crocs are big.
9:40 am
the smallest kind alive today is the african dwarf crocodile, which grows only to about 5 feet long. the biggest living species is the saltwater crocodile, which can grow to be over 20 feet long, still only about half the size of deinosuchus! so crocodiles are reptiles that has been around since the age of dinosaurs. i have this funny feeling there may be a croc right behind me. whoa! time for dr. scott to get on out of here! ok. keep watching for more dinosaur discoveries! >> hello, folks. it's me the conductor. today we're gonna meet the kids' grandma and grandpa when they come to visit pteranodon terrace, so come on along with me on the dinosaur train. all aboard!

[all laughing] >> so long! come see us soon! >> we will! bye! >> hi, there. i'm dr. scott the paleontologist. did you know that many animals living today go on a long trip every year called a migration? lots of different kinds of animals go on migrations, traveling great distances. on land, caribou
9:52 am
migrate up to 3,000 miles every year. in the oceans, humpback whales migrate 6,000 miles! and in the air, a bird called the arctic tern migrates all the way from the arctic in the north to the antarctic in the south, a roundtrip of 44,000 miles! during the age of dinosaurs, it's likely that many species of animals also migrated. some paleontologists think that pteranodons may have spent most of the year on one side of the western interior sea and then migrated to the other side to have their babies. yup. flying reptiles like pteranodon probably shared a lot in common with birds living today. ok. remember, get outside, get into nature, and make your own discoveries! >> we love playing games! announcer: pbs kids presents the all-new "peg + cat," where sometimes the fun starts with a problem... peg: these crazy chickens think the farm is a chicken playground. announcer: sometimes with a song...
