SYNOPSIS (ENG): Did you know that some dinosaurs had fur, that Tyrannosaurus wasn’t the biggest flesh eating dinosaur, that each year we discover new species of dinosaurs? And did you know some dinosaurs ate stones? Since their existence was discovered on this planet, what we know about dinosaurs and what they looked like hasn’t stopped changing. Follow Ralph’s adventures in the world of dinosaurs and have fun learning or refreshing your ideas about what you think you already know.

SYNOPSIS (FRA): Saviez-vous que chaque année des dizaines, voire des centaines de nouveaux dinosaures sont découverts? Saviez-vous que certains portaient de la fourrure et que d’autres mangeaient des pierres? Cette série franco-suisse raconte, avec beaucoup d’humour, les nouvelles découvertes, mais aussi les anciennes sur ces étranges créatures du passé.

SINOSSI (ITA): Dalla scoperta della loro esistenza su questa terra, quel che sappiamo sui dinosauri e il loro aspetto non smette di cambiare, stupirci ed evolvere. Le avventure di Ralph nel mondo dei dinosauri vi divertiranno imparando (o rinfrescheranno le vostre conoscenze)!
