Episode 42 - Spinosaurs

August 26, 2018

It's a dinosaur episode! With their croc-like faces, their weird ornamentation, and their curious fondness for water, the spinosaurs are among the most bizarre and fascinating of all dinosaurs. In this episode, we introduce Spinosaurus and the gang and discuss why these dinos are so cool - and so controversial.

In the news: secrets of regeneration, a new pterosaur, a really old animal, and giant hunting insects.
