Planet Dinosaur is a six-part documentary television series produced by the BBC, narrated by John Hurt, first aired in the United Kingdom in 2011, produced by VFX studio Jellyfish Pictures. It is the first major dinosaur-related series for BBC One since Walking with Dinosaurs. There are more than 50 different prehistoric species featured, and they and their environments were created entirely as computer-generated images, for only a third of the production cost that was needed a decade earlier for Walking with Dinosaurs

Inaccuracies[edit]

  • In the second episode, both Pteranodon and Iguanodon are seen living with Allosaurus in Europe and North America during the Jurassic. This is highly unlikely, as fossils of these animals have only been found in Cretaceous deposits. It is possible they are an unidentified pterosaur and Camptosaurus. However, they were identified as Pteranodon and Iguanodon, and had the same models as the Pteranodon and Iguanodon in the Baryonyx sequence.
  • There is no evidence that Pteranodon was eaten by Allosaurus, as no fossils of Pteranodon have been found in the Jurassic.
  • No evidence of an encounter between Allosaurus and Iguanodon have been found yet, again, as they lived in different time periods.
  • Theropods in the series are depicted with both non-pronated and pronated hands. In real life, no theropod could rotate their hands or have pronation of the hands.
  • The Velociraptor and Deinonychus lack feathers, despite strong evidence that they had feathers. However, their cousin, Microraptor and other creatures like Caudipteryx and Oviraptor, are depicted with feathers.
  • Oviraptor and Velociraptor didn't live 65 million years ago.
  • Amargasaurus didn't live 95 million years ago, but instead, 130 million years ago.
  • Carnotaurus didn't live 95 million years ago.
  • There is no evidence that Brachiosaurus had Pteranodon on its back or scavenging its carcass, as they lived in different time periods.
  • The Jurassic Pteranodons in the second episode don't walk on all-fours like in previous documentaries on dinosaurs. Instead, they use a "flat-out" technique, crawling with its belly on the ground and using its wings to pull itself forward. In reality it could never do that.
  • Despite the third episode clearly stating the relatives to dinosaurs are birds, it says Velociraptors closest living relatives where the crocodile and lizard. The same went with Deinonychus, and so the show depicted the Deinonychus cold-blooded, but still featured Velociraptor warm-blooded.
  • Psittacosaurus was featured without quills. However, some species are seen without quills.
  • The Acrocanthosaurus was depicted with a short snout. However, fossil reveal a very long snout.
  • Ichthyosaurus and Cryolophosaurus didn't live together.
  • Tanystropheuses main prey wasn't Plateosaurus, but fish. It in fact was featured fishing.
  • Tanystropheus made a cameo in the fifth episode, being eaten by a Tylosaurus. However, they never lived with them.
  • A model of the short-snouted "dwarf" Spinosaurus is seen living 65 million years ago. It was even confirmed it was Spinosaurus. However, Spinosaurus died out millions of years before that.
  • Triceratops never lived 98 million years ago. However, its close relative, Zuniceratops did.
