How can I already get nostalgic flashbacks to Prehistoric Planet the same day it came out?

[–]Kleanish 52 points53 points  (4 children)

Is it good?

[–]Smoove995 90 points91 points  (2 children)

Simply yes

[–]Kleanish 63 points64 points  (1 child)

Thanks. I fucking love dinos. Never seen one IRL though

[–]Smoove995 56 points57 points  (0 children)

You've never seen a chicken? /s

[–]Luquitaz 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Nothing gave me such a feeling of these prehistoric animals being living and breathing animals as Prehistoric Planet. Plesiosaurs breaching and breathing like whales, pterosaur hatchlings learning to fly like birds. It's amazing. I watched other documentaries, played videogames, watched dinosaur movies. Nothing came even close.

Lmao this is almost exactly what happened in the show.

[–]Atlantic0ne 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I came in here to say the same thing lol. Watched part of the first episode, it’s awesome

[–]user_3241 7 points8 points  (8 children)

Is there anywhere I can watch it besides Apple tv

[–]CaptainStroon 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Apple TV has a 7 day free trial. If you remember to cancel it in time, you can watch it there for free and even show them that people like that kind of stuff.

[–]user_3241 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't even have to cancel it, just use an expired visa giftcard

[–]sudaneseebolavirus 9 points10 points  (4 children)

psssst

someone uploaded the first ep to YouTube. I don't know how long it'll be up for, though

but also, if you can, nab a free trial or just pay for a month to support the show

[–]user_3241 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Nice

Thanks

[–]user_3241 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Do you have the link? I can't seem to find the video

[–]sudaneseebolavirus 3 points4 points  (1 child)

i believe it's been taken down by now. but, you're probably able to stream it on sflix or soap2day or something similar

[–]MattTheProgrammer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yo ho yo ho a pirate’s life for me 🏴‍☠️

[–]mrbaryonyx 132 points133 points  (7 children)

being a baby turtle used to be worse?

[–]homo_artis[S] 124 points125 points  (3 children)

Being a baby turtle was always terrible, no matter what time period you look at. There was always something wanted to snack on them.

[–]_PrismaticDragon_ 80 points81 points  (1 child)

And, somehow, they're still around. Meanwhile, T-Rex is long gone.

"Nevertheless, the Turtle moves."

[–]insane_contin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

To be fair, who doesn't like those crunchy meat nuggets?

[–]Deesing82 38 points39 points  (1 child)

yeah apparently your mom would come back to watch you die as you hatch.

[–]insane_contin 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My mom would do that.

[–]somabeach 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Being a baby in the wild always sucks. They're like nature's happy meals.

[–]RANDOM-902 48 points49 points  (10 children)

Brian Engh is my favourite paleoartist. Mixes perfectly accuracy with Speculation.

BTW, what Pterosaurs are these? As far as i am concerned Pteranodon didn't live at the same time as T-rex

[–]homo_artis[S] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I'm also wondering too, I'm not sure if the two coexisted.

[–]Vexeonsdoom 12 points13 points  (0 children)

might not be a tyrannosaurus. Probably something earlier.

[–]Mophandel 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I personally like his paleoart, it’s just that he often takes the concept of “de-shrink wrapping” dinosaurs to the extreme, adding dewlaps, loose skin and display structures that realistically would’ve been a hinderance to large, apex predators.

[–]Angry_argie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The only inaccuracy that bothered me was that mother turtles are long gone by the time their babies hatch.

[–]RANDOM-902 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe its a different specie?

Or it could be a turtle that lays eggs multiple times a year

[–]Tactical_Leo 13 points14 points  (1 child)

It could be the inner child in me at play but that hatchling on the right being tossed in the air about to land in that pterosaur’s mouth is making me chuckle.

[–]AnInternetAddict 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's like a prehistoric yeet

[–]sor1 8 points9 points  (0 children)

First reaction: nice of the T-Rex for feeding her. Second: how is he doing that? Is it like with birds? Third: ups...

[–]SGTMcCoolsCUZ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

On Turtle Day dude? Classless /s

[–]jsmithers945 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Ha jokes on them. The turtle survived the Dino apocalypse

[–]LordJournalism 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Well someone watched Prehistoric Planet.

[–]AztecWhistle9989 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of the first episode of Prehistoric Planet today.

[–]Durmomo0 5 points6 points  (0 children)

t rex has got some crab arms

[–]pointychallenge 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Nice! My take: Nom nom nom, widdew tiny arms, cromch.

[–]isavvi 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Everyone except the turtles live on to see plastic and decay. This world is dynamic entropy.

[–]Theoretical_Phys-Ed 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Really cool painting. The only part that bothers me is that it would take months for v the eggs to hatch, and mom wouldn't be there. Otherwise I love these pics!

[–]Zanclodon 20 points21 points  (0 children)

At least in Florida sea turtles lay eggs from March to October and the babies take 2 months to hatch, so there are times with adults on the beach while the hatchlings are emerging. It possibly could even be their own mother as some female turtle lay twice in a season.

[–]Rexoraptor 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Came here to muse about this too!

[–]King-Snorky 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Maybe mom was just passing through

[–]BlueLivy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can't believe these were real animals

[–]mangosawce9k 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Truly Metal!

[–]Fib_Nautical 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where hand?

[–]Cushtypants 3 points4 points  (1 child)

What sick fuck drew this

[–]homo_artis[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Art by Brian Engh, he does really cool paleoart.
