There is a New Documentary
By Rupprecht Mayer
Which does not show how the tyrannosaurs tore into the ceratopsians, but how well the grass tasted for the stegosaurus, and the blossoming branches for the ankylosaurus. Which does not show how the herrerasaurs and the eoraptors hunted the dicynodonts, but how the beipiaosaurs cared for their feathers. Which does not show how the saurornitholestes devoured the quetzalcoatlus, but how nice the lesothosaurs were to their cubs.
There is no such documentary, unfortunately.
