Some animated depictions were made to give an impression about how the dinosaurs might or could have looked like and how they might or would have behaved. Those animations have been featured in other media since. Some of them have been available to see in public computers at Swedish Museum of Natural History. Many of the animations have also been uploaded on YouTube.
The series was released on VHS and laserdisc in 1993. The VHS edition was re-issued in November 10, 1998 with different case artwork. It is Re-released in the Fourth Tape in November 30, 1999. There have been no plans or discussions for a DVD or Blu-ray release.
