When strange bones are discovered in a muddy Kansas riverbank, paleontologists set out to investigate a mystery buried in time. Through ultra-realistic 3-D computer animation, travel back to the Late Cretaceous period, when the sea was dominated by giant marine reptiles, some as large as present-day whales. Follow a female Dolichorhynchops (a seal-like reptile) and her offspring through adventures that illustrate life in the sea during the Age of Dinosaurs.
Live-action re-creations of actual paleontological digs are shown throughout the film, revealing the scientific basis for each animated episode. Discover for yourself if the bones in Kansas are in fact those of the Dolichorhynchops featured in the film.
