In a time when dinosaurs rule the Earth, the smallest of the pack — a playful Pachyrhinosaurus named Patchi — embarks on the biggest adventure of his life. As he tries to find his place in a spectacular world filled with fun-loving friends and a few dangerous foes, Patchi will discover the courage he needs to become the leader of the herd...and a hero for the ages.

We are so lucky to have a film like Walking With Dinosaurs to remind us how important it is to be remember these prehistoric creatures and teach us about all the different species! To help you prepare for the films release on DVD and Blu-ray, here are some fun dinosaur facts:

Did you know?

1. A stegosaurus was twice as heavy as a car, but had a brain only as big as a kitten?

2. Dinosaurs were not alone! Alphadons were small mammals, similar to possums, that roamed the earth with dinos!

3. Some believe that the Tyrannosaurus rex might have had feathers!

4. Pachyrhinosaurus (the kind of dinosaur Patchi was) means “thick nose reptile”, probably named for the pad of bone it had on its face, instead of horns or a brow!

5. Carnivores are believed to have lived to be about 30 years old, while herbivores lived even longer than that!

Are any of these facts new to you?  What is your favorite dinosaur?
