The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

  • I always remember when I was young looking at Dinosaurs in a book and thinking it was so wrong. The T-Rex had a big belly and was bright green with red spots and had feathers. My perception of Dinosaurs in the 90s was they were all lizard-like

  • I remember as an 6-8 year old, I thought, not every dinosaur can be inside the orange crystals (used to call it orange crystals) so I wondered how many ancient animals we would never know, innever knew that I'd be thinking the same thing again.

  • I love you videos and I really want to recommend to my Chinese Dad as he loves to learn more about these interesting topics. However, I realized that you guys don't have subtitles for Chinese. Just as a suggestion, I think there would be a huge market audience who would be interested in your content if these videos were translated into Chinese. Thumbs up if you think Kurzgesagt should add some Chinese subtitles and grow the channel even more! Thank you for your vids, much love

    • Velociraptor was definitely much smaller, because they’re based on other dinosaurs entirely and only called velociraptors because Spielberg liked the name.
