tv An eight-part series on animals that have become extinct premiers on October 19
W atch “Animal Armageddon”, an eight–part series that will premiere on Animal Planet on October 19 at 8 p.m.
In this series you can “meet” the animals that have become extinct.
The series will take you on a journey to the lives of animals like the coiled nautiloid, cousins of straight nautiloid, which were generally small, just the width of the human hand. It used to slice through the sea by inhaling water then forcing it out through a small muscular tube at the base of the shell.
Nautiloids swim far more efficiently backwards. They had the jet propulsion system, so it was not a constant swimming like a fish, it was like a little piston, explain the makers. Tyrannosaurus Rex, a large dinosaur, eurypterids, the largest arthropods in the history of the planet and eudimorphodon -- birdlike creatures – which were the first flying reptiles or Cherolepis, a predatory freshwater fish about 55 centimetre long are some of the animals that this series will cover.
