Synopsis

Dino Lab, a two-hour special, will combine up-to-the-minute science with a ratings-proven cast of "living, breathing" digital dinosaurs. Created by the same electronic animators who first brought the creatures to life in Dinosaur Planet for Discovery Channel, prehistoric creatures of all stripes are dropped into a modern, controlled laboratory setting. Here "lab technicians" attempt to test their prehistoric subjects on a number of laboratory experiments, as well as show us "out of lab" and "real life" feats by these monumental creatures. The lab is gigantic - part Olympic trials facility, part obstacle course, and is designed to illustrate paleontologists' latest insights about these creatures in a dramatic and highly entertaining way.
