Did you know that Aristotle (384-322 BC) is often referred to as the father of marine biology? Aristotle was the first to record observations on marine life, and identified a variety of species including crustaceans, echinoderms, mollusks, and fish. There is so much to discover under water! In December 2012, a giant, marine reptile that roamed the seas around 150 million years ago was identified as a new species. The animal, now named Pliosaurus funkei spanned about 40 feet, had a massive 6.5 foot long skull and a bite as powerful as a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Crazy!!
On February 18, Buddy and everyone’s favorite Pteranodon family will dive into an underwater adventure in “Submarine Adventure.” The one-hour program will feature four new stories about sea creatures that lived during the “Age of Dinosaurs.” Preschoolers will meet new friends along the way – from Otto Ophthalmosaurus to Archelon turtles – as they learn about natural science, natural history and paleontology. And if you miss it, both full episodes and clips from “Submarine Adventure” will be available on the PBS KIDS Video Player at PBSKIDS.org/video and on the free PBS KIDS Video App beginning February 19!
To celebrate this new one-hour special, you too can “Ride Along the Dinosaur Train” in this new book from Grosset & Dunlap, available everywhere books are sold! This fun, interactive novelty book lets you ride the Dinosaur Train with Buddy and his family. Using the slide along train at the top of the book, your child can visit all the stops along with the Dinosaur Train!
