# Andy's Prehistoric Adventures! #

0:00:550:00:59

Hi, I'm Andy. I run the prehistoric gallery here at the National Museum.

0:01:200:01:24

Today, I've been working on a new display about a dinosaur

0:01:240:01:28

that looked really big but was actually small.

0:01:280:01:31

Follow me, I'll explain.

0:01:310:01:33

-Hi, Jen.

-Oh, hello, Andy.

0:01:360:01:39

There we go. What are you up to?

0:01:400:01:43

I'm trying to work out what type of reeds these are in the picture.

0:01:430:01:47

What do you mean?

0:01:470:01:49

I know that's a sauropod dinosaur and they were huge,

0:01:490:01:52

so the reeds next to them must have been huge as well.

0:01:520:01:55

But I can't find anything on the internet

0:01:550:01:58

about giant prehistoric reeds.

0:01:580:02:00

Just normal-sized ones, like those.

0:02:000:02:03

That's because it's not the reeds that are big,

0:02:030:02:06

-it's the dinosaur that's small.

-Oh.

0:02:060:02:09

But I thought sauropod dinosaurs were massive, as big as a house.

0:02:090:02:13

Most of them were but this dinosaur was very special.

0:02:130:02:17

It's called Magyarosaurus. It only grew to about the size of a pony.

0:02:170:02:22

Why were they so small?

0:02:220:02:23

Because on the prehistoric island where they lived,

0:02:230:02:26

there weren't enough plants to feed big dinosaurs,

0:02:260:02:30

so Magyarosaurus got smaller and smaller.

0:02:300:02:32

Mrs Pickles gave me these reeds. She thinks they used to eat them.

0:02:320:02:36

Well, it says here that reeds are very sensitive plants

0:02:360:02:40

and need plenty of water.

0:02:400:02:42

Oh, I'd better water them then, before we go home.

0:02:420:02:45

Um... Ah!

0:02:450:02:46

Here we go.

0:02:470:02:50

A nice, refreshing drink.

0:02:500:02:52

Oh, no!

0:02:560:02:58

-Oops!

-Are you sure that was water?

0:03:000:03:03

I think it was cleaning polish.

0:03:100:03:13

They're ruined!

0:03:130:03:14

Mrs Pickles will be so upset.

0:03:140:03:16

I can't show her her reeds looking like this.

0:03:160:03:19

-Can we buy some more?

-It's too late, all the shops will be shut.

0:03:190:03:24

There's just not enough time.

0:03:240:03:26

CLOCK CHIMES

0:03:260:03:27

Time.

0:03:340:03:35

That's it!

0:03:360:03:38

Jen, you stay here, I'll be back soon with some new reeds.

0:03:380:03:42

-Time to go on a prehistoric adventure.

-But, Andy...

0:03:420:03:45

How will you...?

0:03:450:03:47

Waistcoat.

0:03:550:03:57

Check.

0:03:570:03:58

Hat.

0:03:580:04:00

Check.

0:04:010:04:02

Backpack.

0:04:020:04:03

Check.

0:04:040:04:06

And last, but not least, gizmo.

0:04:060:04:08

Check.

0:04:100:04:11

To the time of Magyarosaurus!

0:04:280:04:30

Yahoo!

0:04:500:04:52

I've made it!

0:05:010:05:03

I've travelled back 70 million years to the time of Magyarosaurus.

0:05:030:05:08

And look, I'm in the perfect spot.

0:05:080:05:11

There are reeds everywhere.

0:05:110:05:13

This is going to be the quickest adventure ever.

0:05:130:05:17

Um...

0:05:180:05:20

There we go.

0:05:380:05:40

Well, that was easy enough.

0:05:430:05:45

Time to head...

0:05:450:05:47

Hang on.

0:05:480:05:50

It's a footprint.

0:05:500:05:52

And they're leading all the way over there.

0:05:530:05:56

Just as I thought. It's a Magyarosaurus.

0:05:580:06:02

I've never seen one of those before.

0:06:020:06:05

Oh, I've got plenty of time.

0:06:070:06:09

I could have a quick look and then head straight back.

0:06:090:06:12

Yes. I mean, what's the worst that can happen?

0:06:120:06:16

What's that?

0:06:190:06:22

It's definitely not Magyarosaurus.

0:06:220:06:24

SQUAWKING

0:06:260:06:27

It's a whole group of Hatzegopteryx.

0:06:270:06:31

Giant flying reptiles the size of giraffes.

0:06:320:06:35

Look at the size of their beaks.

0:06:350:06:38

They could do some damage.

0:06:380:06:40

I've got to sneak past them. It's going to be tricky though.

0:06:400:06:44

I've got a good idea.

0:06:440:06:46

To the size of...

0:06:480:06:50

To the size of a puppy.

0:06:520:06:54

YAPPING

0:06:540:06:56

Perfect. Now they won't be able to spot me.

0:07:010:07:04

GROWLING

0:07:050:07:07

SQUAWKING

0:07:110:07:13

SQUAWKING

0:07:260:07:28

Wow, their beaks really are big!

0:07:310:07:34

Oh, that was a close call.

0:07:390:07:42

Right...now to find Magyarosaurus.

0:07:420:07:46

Yes! It's a whole herd of Magyarosaurus!

0:07:540:07:57

This is exactly what I wanted to see.

0:07:570:07:59

Hello, little fella. How are you doing?

0:07:590:08:03

That's it, eat your greens.

0:08:030:08:05

Hang on, these can't be Magyarosaurus, they're massive.

0:08:090:08:14

Oh, silly me! Of course - I'm still the size of a puppy!

0:08:160:08:20

No wonder they look giant.

0:08:200:08:23

Back to normal size.

0:08:230:08:26

There we go. What's that?

0:08:300:08:33

The Hatzegopteryx are back!

0:08:360:08:38

Oh...

0:08:410:08:42

Here he comes.

0:08:460:08:48

Whoa!

0:08:480:08:49

What are they up to?

0:08:530:08:55

They're looking for something.

0:08:550:08:57

Hmm, they don't seem interested in me.

0:09:000:09:03

I know what they're after.

0:09:060:09:08

The baby Magyarosaurus!

0:09:080:09:10

GROWLING

0:09:160:09:17

Oh, no!

0:09:180:09:20

Hey! Put him down, you big bully!

0:09:220:09:26

Now they're fighting over him.

0:09:280:09:31

Be careful you don't get stepped on.

0:09:390:09:41

Run for it, little guy!

0:09:450:09:47

Cor!

0:09:490:09:50

Yes, he got away.

0:09:520:09:54

Ha-ha! No dinner for you two.

0:09:570:09:59

The clock, he's got my clock!

0:10:030:10:05

Give that back.

0:10:070:10:09

Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to swim out to it.

0:10:190:10:23

Whoa!

0:10:230:10:25

On second thoughts, maybe swimming to it's not a good idea.

0:10:260:10:30

What am I going to do? Um...

0:10:310:10:34

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

0:10:340:10:38

Right.

0:10:390:10:41

Sandpaper?

0:10:410:10:42

A miniature hairbrush?

0:10:450:10:47

Fast-acting glue?

0:10:510:10:53

How is all this going to help me?

0:10:530:10:55

Maybe if I'm quiet, I can sneak up and... Whoa!

0:10:570:11:01

No.

0:11:010:11:03

Whatever's in the water has got lots of sharp teeth.

0:11:040:11:07

It's making me very jumpy.

0:11:070:11:10

Hang on.

0:11:130:11:15

Reeds.

0:11:150:11:17

Fast acting glue.

0:11:170:11:20

And jumpy.

0:11:210:11:22

Ahh!

0:11:240:11:26

Hey presto! One prehistoric pole vault.

0:11:280:11:32

I just hope this glue holds.

0:11:320:11:34

Let's give it a go.

0:11:350:11:36

Whoa!

0:11:380:11:40

Time to head back.

0:11:450:11:48

Mrs Pickles, quick!

0:12:000:12:02

Good morning, Jen. I'm just on my way to see Andy's new display.

0:12:110:12:16

It's always exciting to have a fresh new exhibit in the museum.

0:12:160:12:20

It might not be quite as fresh and new as usual, Mrs Pickles.

0:12:200:12:26

-Hello, Andy.

-Good morning, Mrs Pickles.

0:12:590:13:02

I'm just doing a spot of gardening for the display.

0:13:020:13:06

Ah, The miniature Magyarosaurus.

0:13:060:13:08

One of my favourite sauropods. Nice job, Andy.

0:13:080:13:12

Oh, I see you found a spot for my reeds.

0:13:120:13:15

But how on earth did you get them so lovely and fresh looking?

0:13:160:13:20

Plenty of water, Mrs Pickles.

0:13:200:13:22

And no cleaning polish. Sh!

0:13:220:13:25

See you next time.

0:13:440:13:47

Andy travels back 70 million years to meet the miniature magyarosaurus, a relative of the giant sauropod dinosaurs, which grew no bigger than a pony. But when he arrives on their prehistoric island home, he has to shrink down as well to hide from a giant flying reptile as tall as a giraffe.
