We've got dinosaurs and ice age beasts. You should see them!

0:00:040:00:08

Jen is my assistant, Mrs Pickles runs the show.

0:00:080:00:10

-Come on my adventure!

-Ready, steady go...

0:00:270:00:29

When I jump into the old museum clock to explore.

0:00:290:00:33

"Take me off to prehistoric times," I say.

0:00:330:00:35

Hold on tight, shut your eyes...

0:00:350:00:37

And then we fly away!

HE WHISTLES

0:01:040:01:06

Hi! I'm Andy. I run the Prehistoric Gallery here at the National Museum.

0:01:230:01:28

I love my job.

0:01:280:01:30

Today I've been working on a display about a colossal dinosaur.

0:01:300:01:33

I've got something in here for it. Come on, I'll show you.

0:01:330:01:37

-Hi, Jen!

-Hi, Andy.

0:01:430:01:45

What is this you're working on?

0:01:450:01:47

This display is all about Argentinosaurus,

0:01:470:01:50

one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered.

0:01:500:01:54

It doesn't look that big to me.

0:01:540:01:55

-This is just the bone at the bottom bit of its leg.

-Wow!

0:01:550:01:59

In that case, it would have been absolutely enormous!

0:01:590:02:03

Yeah, it was.

0:02:030:02:05

But they started life teeny-tiny,

0:02:050:02:07

in little nests a bit like this.

0:02:070:02:10

A nest?

0:02:100:02:11

Yes, Argentinosaurus hatched from an egg not much bigger than my hand.

0:02:110:02:16

But then they grew into a massive dinosaur.

0:02:160:02:20

-Wow!

-Look at this.

0:02:200:02:22

HE SIGHS

0:02:290:02:30

This is a piece of fossilised Argentinosaurus eggshell.

0:02:300:02:36

Mrs Pickles found it in South America. It's 95 million years old.

0:02:360:02:41

Oh, wow!

0:02:410:02:42

What an incredible dinosaur! I want to work out just how big they grew.

0:02:420:02:47

Come on.

0:02:470:02:48

Oh... Um...

0:02:480:02:50

Here we go.

0:02:590:03:01

I've calculated a fully grown Argentinosaurus would have been

0:03:010:03:05

just over 30 metres head to tail,

0:03:050:03:07

so that's as long as three double-decker buses.

0:03:070:03:11

-That's so clever!

-Not really.

0:03:130:03:15

I worked out the dimensions of the leg bone,

0:03:150:03:18

then extrapolated the data with basic vector graphics.

0:03:180:03:21

Right!

0:03:210:03:23

DOOR OPENS Oh!

0:03:230:03:24

-Ah! Hello, you two.

-BOTH: Hello, Mrs Pickles.

0:03:240:03:28

I want to see

0:03:280:03:29

how the Argentinosaurus display is coming along.

0:03:290:03:32

-It will be ready for the morning.

-Wonderful.

0:03:320:03:35

You will be careful with my eggshell, won't you?

0:03:350:03:38

-It's 95 million years old, you know.

-We'll take extra-special care of it.

0:03:380:03:43

I knew I could count on you both. See you in the morning.

0:03:430:03:46

Goodnight!

0:03:460:03:48

Right, Jen, let's go and put that eggshell into the nest.

0:03:480:03:51

-It's gone!

-Where did it go?

-It was just here!

0:03:540:03:59

We can't have lost it already! Mrs Pickles will be so upset.

0:03:590:04:03

What are we going to do?

0:04:030:04:05

We need to search the whole of the museum from top to bottom.

0:04:050:04:08

The museum is huge! We're never going to have enough time.

0:04:080:04:12

CLOCK CHIMES

0:04:120:04:14

SQUAWKING

0:04:170:04:19

That's it!

0:04:210:04:22

Jen, you stay here, I'll go and get another Argentinosaurus eggshell.

0:04:220:04:26

Time to go on a prehistoric adventure!

0:04:260:04:29

But, Andy, where are you going to find a...?

0:04:290:04:32

..nother eggshell?

0:04:320:04:34

Waistcoat, gizmo, hat, backpack...

0:04:420:04:46

To the time of Argentinosaurus!

0:04:550:04:58

WHIRRING

0:04:580:05:00

LOUD BOOM

0:05:080:05:10

Ohhhh...!

0:05:100:05:11

Ohhhh! Hoo-hoo!

0:05:110:05:15

Aaaaahhhh!

0:05:150:05:17

Whoohoo!

0:05:180:05:20

SQUAWKING

0:05:200:05:21

Ohhh...

0:05:270:05:28

Ho-ho! I've made it!

0:05:300:05:33

I've travelled back in time 95 million years,

0:05:330:05:37

to the time of Argentinosaurus.

0:05:370:05:41

RHYTHMIC RUMBLING THUDS

0:05:410:05:44

Whoa! The ground's all shaky!

0:05:440:05:47

I hope I haven't landed in the middle of an earthquake... Whoa!

0:05:480:05:52

THUDDING

0:05:530:05:56

It's not an earthquake.

0:05:580:06:00

It's an Argentinosaurus-quake!

0:06:000:06:03

Whoa!

0:06:030:06:05

Look at the size of her!

0:06:060:06:08

She's so tall she's almost scraping her head on the sky.

0:06:080:06:12

DEEP ROARING

0:06:120:06:14

There's a whole parade of Argentinosaurus here!

0:06:140:06:17

They're immense!

0:06:170:06:19

There must be some eggs nearby.

0:06:210:06:23

Excuse me!

0:06:250:06:26

Where do you lay your eggs? Excuse me...

0:06:260:06:30

They're never going to hear me all the way down here.

0:06:300:06:33

I need to get close to their ears.

0:06:330:06:36

That is a long way up. How am I going to do that?

0:06:380:06:42

DEEP ROARING

0:06:420:06:44

Going up...

0:06:470:06:49

Still going up...

0:06:540:06:57

HE GRUNTS

0:06:570:06:58

DEEP ROARING

0:07:000:07:02

Still going up.

0:07:050:07:06

ROARING Wow!

0:07:120:07:14

Oh...

0:07:150:07:17

What a view!

0:07:180:07:19

DEEP, RUMBLING THUDS

0:07:270:07:30

It's a good thing Argentinosauruses aren't scared of heights.

0:07:390:07:44

They have to eat so much

0:07:440:07:47

that they don't bother to chew their food.

0:07:470:07:49

They just gulp it down in one go.

0:07:490:07:52

Excuse me, Argentinosaurus! Could you tell me where you lay your eggs?

0:07:540:07:59

GROWLING

0:07:590:08:01

Oh! Here she comes.

0:08:010:08:03

LOUD, HISSING SPRAY

0:08:030:08:05

Oh... Whoa...!

0:08:050:08:07

Whoa!

0:08:090:08:11

Whooo! Whooofff!

0:08:120:08:14

Oh...

0:08:160:08:17

A nest! Thanks!

0:08:180:08:22

Yes!

0:08:220:08:24

CRACKING

0:08:240:08:25

Oh, look! One of the eggs is hatching!

0:08:250:08:29

CHEEPING

0:08:310:08:33

Oh... It's a baby Argentinosaurus!

0:08:330:08:36

CHEEPING Awwww!

0:08:360:08:38

I can't believe how tiny they are compared to the adults.

0:08:390:08:43

CHEEPING Argen-TINY-sauruses!

0:08:430:08:48

GROWLING

0:08:480:08:49

Right... Now to get some eggshell.

0:08:510:08:55

There we are!

0:08:550:08:57

Ooops! Careful!

0:08:570:09:00

This will look perfect on the display.

0:09:000:09:02

Thanks, Argen-tiny-saurus!

0:09:020:09:05

CHEEPING

0:09:050:09:07

I'd love to take you back with me, but...

0:09:070:09:09

I think you'd probably outgrow the museum.

0:09:090:09:12

Now, where's the clock? Um...

0:09:150:09:19

I'll put this down here gently.

0:09:230:09:25

DISTANT ROARING It's a Skorpiovenator!

0:09:310:09:34

A prehistoric carnivore almost as big as a T-Rex.

0:09:340:09:39

Whoa!

0:09:390:09:40

This telescope makes it look really, really close!

0:09:400:09:44

LOUD ROARING

0:09:450:09:47

TOO close!

0:09:490:09:50

Oh, watch out, Argen-tiny-saurus!

0:09:510:09:55

Shoo! Leave my little friend alone!

0:09:550:09:57

How am I going to get rid of him?

0:09:570:10:00

IT SQUAWKS

0:10:000:10:02

Oh... Good idea!

0:10:020:10:05

Let's roar! RRROOOOAAARRRR!

0:10:050:10:08

IT SQUAWKS

0:10:080:10:10

RRROOOOAAARRR!

0:10:100:10:12

0:10:120:10:15

Wow!

0:10:160:10:18

IT WHIMPERS

0:10:180:10:20

How did you...?

0:10:210:10:24

IT GRUNTS

0:10:240:10:26

Oh! Thanks, Mum!

0:10:260:10:28

IT GRUNTS TENDERLY

0:10:280:10:31

IT CHEEPS

0:10:310:10:33

Huh!

0:10:330:10:34

Where's the eggshell? Where's it gone?

0:10:360:10:39

Come back with my eggshell! I need that for my display!

0:10:400:10:44

Follow that dinosaur!

0:10:450:10:47

You are one vast-footed dinosaur!

0:10:500:10:52

GROWLING AND SQUELCHING

0:10:560:10:58

Watch out for that footprint!

0:11:020:11:05

Whoa...!

0:11:090:11:10

Ahhh... I got it!

0:11:120:11:14

DEEP GROWLING

0:11:140:11:18

Oh, no!

0:11:180:11:19

Now I'm stuck in a giant footprint!

0:11:190:11:22

Um...

0:11:220:11:23

HE GRUNTS

0:11:290:11:32

I can't get out!

CLOCK CHIMES

0:11:340:11:35

The clock! How am I going to get back in time?

0:11:390:11:42

Um...

0:11:420:11:44

My backpack. It's always full of useful things.

0:11:440:11:47

Gloves.

0:11:480:11:50

Water bottle.

0:11:520:11:53

What's this?

0:11:550:11:56

A fire hose?!

0:11:570:11:59

Oh...

0:11:590:12:01

Well, there's no fires to put out here.

0:12:010:12:03

Unless...

0:12:050:12:06

Here goes.

0:12:080:12:09

DEEP ROARING

0:12:130:12:15

Whoaaaa!

0:12:150:12:17

Aaaahhhhhh...!

0:12:170:12:20

Time to head back!

0:12:210:12:24

Ohhh...

0:12:320:12:34

CLOCK CHIMES

0:12:340:12:35

Quick! Mrs Pickles!

0:12:350:12:37

-Good morning, Mrs Pickles.

-Good morning, Jen.

0:12:470:12:50

Are you sure you want to see

0:12:520:12:54

the Argentinosaurus display now, Mrs Pickles?

0:12:540:12:57

Oh, yes, I can't wait to see it.

0:12:570:12:59

Can't I get you a drink first? Or breakfast? Or cake?

0:13:020:13:06

Or something that will take a really long time to eat? Mrs Pickles?

0:13:060:13:10

Ah, Andy!

0:13:160:13:18

I'm very excited to see how my Argentinosaurus eggshell looks.

0:13:180:13:22

Well... It looks...

0:13:220:13:25

SHE GASPS

0:13:250:13:26

Stupendous!

0:13:260:13:28

Oh, what a wonderful display! Well done, you two.

0:13:280:13:33

It looks even better than I remember.

0:13:330:13:36

Almost as though it hatched yesterday.

0:13:360:13:38

Huh!

0:13:380:13:40

You might want to clean yourself up bit, Andy, before the museum opens.

0:13:400:13:45

Oh... I will, Mrs Pickles.

0:13:450:13:47

See you next time.

0:13:490:13:51

One, two, three, four!
