Pembrokeshire residents were stunned after waking up to find giant dinosaur footprints along their local beach.
A trail of 64 T. rex footprints, each one meter long, emerged along the golden sands of Traeth Llyfn, leaving beachgoers stunned.
Passerby Anna Hatton, 72, said: “I saw these giant footprints from up on the cliff path and came down to look at them.
“It’s amazing how big they are up close.”
A team of 10 sand artists worked with paleontologists to design the prints and spent more than four hours creating the 50-meter prehistoric trail for Apple.
The installation, which took Pembrokeshire Beach back to the Late Cretaceous, marks the launch today (23 May) of the Apple TV+ series Prehistoric Planet, narrated by Sir David Attenborough and featuring music composed by Hans Zimmer.
Sir David Attenborough said: “It’s an opportunity to bring to life the world’s most famous dinosaurs like T. rex and Triceratops, but also to really immerse yourself in their world and see the incredible diversity of life that existed at the time.”
Executive Producer Mike Gunton said, “We wanted to find a stunning way to get people talking about the release of Prehistoric Planet, and what better way than to bring the dinosaurs back to the present.”
About the T Rex
Epic proportions – T. rex could be 13 meters long and weigh around 10 tons.
Make a splash – they were good swimmers. Strong hind legs would likely have propelled them effectively through the water, and fossil evidence supports this.
Using a CT scanner, scientists have discovered that many theropod bones had a hollow structure that would have helped their massive bodies levitate.
Sensitive faces: In the new series, it is revealed that T. rex had many nerve endings on its face that would have played a significant role not only in communication but also in courtship.
They had feathers when they were young — paleontologists think T. rex juveniles likely had a thin coat of downy feathers — which likely evolved first to keep them warm. However, an adult T. rex would not have needed them.
T. rex, the family man: It is possible that T. rex fathers took the leading role in raising their young, including preserving the egg nests.
