Uncover a hidden past when prehistoric giants roamed Antarctica hundreds of millions of years ago

Join scientists on a quest to unearth a prehistoric world now lost to ice on the southernmost continent of Antarctica. Discover a colossal amphibian that lurks below the surface of an ancient river, learn about the largest-known early Jurassic carnivore and come face-to-face with other fearsome dinosaurs and fascinating creatures that inhabited a lush landscape—one that looks nothing like the frozen desert we know today. Travel through time to investigate the end of Earth’s last ice age. Explore the causes and repercussions of a changing climate and seek clues to our own future on this planet.
