"Found the video tedious - minutes of people digging or riding in vehicles with irrelevant chit chat. My class of 12 year old inner-city 7th graders was bored much of the time. To be fair - the film has a few interesting parts. Felt that the producer had a good 15 minute film idea that he (or she) was forced to stretch. On the other hand ... my kids were kept spell-bound by the "Before the Dinosaurs" BBC series. Can't recommend it highly enough for content and excitement! Get the DVD with sub-titles so the kids can take notes - you can pause the DVDs. (Most of my students don't have English as a first language.) Also, "Walking with Cavemen," another BBC release, is great for human evolution. Some nudity but it didn't bother my 7th graders who saw it towards the end of the school year after we had learned about the human body."
Super Croc is worth the purchase

"I bought these for my son who is 5 and a dinosaur fanatic! He loves Super Croc however dinosaur hunter is about the actual digging and looking for dinosaurs, he really isn't that interested in that, maybe when he gets older. But for real dinosaur lovers, especially those who also love alligators or crocodiles, super croc is well worth the purchase!"
