For thousands of years, humans believed that there were once flying monsters. Such creatures became mythologized, with stories about them shared around the world. But could they have really existed? Flying Monsters is a National Geographic documentary that explores these great prehistoric beasts.
Around 220 million years ago dinosaurs were on the rise to dominating the Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap--control of the skies. They were the pterosaurs--after insects, the first animals ever to fly. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastical than any fiction.
Hosted by Sir David Attenborough, distinguished naturalist and broadcaster, this program uses amazing special effects techniques to portray these airborne dinosaurs. Appropriate for anyone that loves dinosaurs!
