Dinosaurs of Antarctica

Welcome to the lost prehistoric world of Gondwana. Welcome to Antarctica.

Join this fascinating journey with intrepid scientists on a quest to understand the ice continent’s profound transformation and to predict the future as humans drive dramatic change.

Take a trip back in time to the south polar landscapes of Antarctica hundreds of millions of years ago. Roam the primitive forests and thick swamps where you’ll encounter bizarre dinosaurs and colossal amphibians. Enter a surreal world of bug-eyed giants and egg-laying mammals—where survival means enduring the sunless, six-month polar winter surrounded by meat-eaters with night vision.
