節目介紹 Introduction

過去百年以來歷史學家與科學家一直嘗試拼湊出史前時代的樣貌,本節目將檢視數百萬年前就已存在在地球上的龐然大物以及牠們的戰鬥。有些恐龍的身形比一棟七層樓高的建築還要巨大,牠們的獵食行為不僅具有策略性還十分狡詐,史前時代的世界因此形同戰場,而當時地球的溫度、地勢和觀察獵物強弱的敏銳度都影響著恐龍的攻擊行為。如今,古生物學家仍在探索恐龍戰鬥的蛛絲馬跡並持續有新的發現,恐龍的機動能力、團隊合作和攻擊時機都會影響每個個體的生死存亡。本節目每一集都會詳細剖析恐龍的戰鬥,觀眾們會發現史前時代的生存遊戲比原先想像得更加精密複雜。

For over a century, historians and scientists have been piecing together a history of the prehistoric world. This series examines the ultimate fighters of this unique period -- gigantic beasts that stalked the earth millions of years ago. Some of these dinosaurs were larger than seven-story buildings, and hunted their prey with strategy and cunning, transforming the prehistoric world into a battlefield. The temperature, terrain, and innate sense of the opponent's weaknesses and strengths all played a role in how each dinosaur planned his attack. Today, paleontologists are uncovering these fighting grounds and are gaining startling new insight into how maneuverability, team coordination, and striking at the exact moment meant survival. Blow by blow, each episode will dissect these battles, revealing a predatory world far more calculated -- and complex -- than we originally thought.
