Classic in the Jurassic: Turtle and Theropod Race/Hungry, Hungry Carnivores

Tue, Jan 5 12:00 P.M. NHPBS      

The Pteranodon family is super excited to be traveling to the "Classic in the Jurassic," an Olympic-type competition in which different dinosaur teams representing the three Mesozoic time periods will compete in various contests. Today's competition is a race between turtle and theropod teams. When the fast-running theropods all get tangled up at the finish line, the race comes down to the slow-moving turtles. It's an exciting race as the turtles are neck and neck! Who will win this pre-historic match up?? Buddy, Tiny and Mrs. Pteranodon are eating lunch at Pteranodon Terrace, and even though they've just eaten a big fish meal, Buddy's tummy is still grumbly-hungry. Mom understands that because Buddy is a carnivore he needs meat, so she takes the kids to the Dining Car on the Dinosaur Train to get him some carrion. While dining, Laura Giganotosaurus tells Buddy that the best meal she ever ate was prepared by her cousin, Chef Carson Carcharodontosaurus. So Buddy, Tiny, Mom and Laura all travel to meet the boisterous and generous Chef C and eat some of his famous carrion dishes. Buddy's tummy is happily full when our family leaves to head home. They even bring back a snack for Mr. Conductor!
