SEA MONSTERS

When strange bones are discovered in a muddy Kansas river bank, paleontologists set out to investigate a mystery buried in time. Through ultra-realistic 3-D computer animation Sea Monsters takes audiences back to the Late Cretaceous, when the sea was dominated by giant marine reptiles, some as large as present-day whales. Get up close and personal with some of the dinosaur age’s most fearsome marine reptiles.

Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure transports the audience back to the Late Cretaceous, when a great inland sea divided North America. The film connects paleontology digs from around the globe into a compelling story about scientists working as detectives to answer questions about this ancient and mysterious ocean world.
