Primeval: Series 4 Creatures
We have received some new details on exactly what type of nasties the Primeval team will face in the first three episodes of Series 4.
Spinosaurus – Spinosaurus is the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs, even larger than Tyrannosaurus Rex and Giganotosaurus. The distinctive spines of Spinosaurus, which were long extensions of the vertebrae, grew up to 2m long and were likely to have had skin connecting them, forming a sail-like structure.
Dracorex – Last seen in Season 3 Episode 7, the team rescued the Dracorex after it was injured in a fight with the knight, only for its anomaly to close. It’s been living in the ARC menagerie since then. Dracorex, an herbivore, had a skull with spiky horns, bumps, and a long muzzle.
Raptor – Abby and Connor last encountered raptors whilst trying to return to the ARC in Season 3 Episode 10. They haven’t managed to escape them during their stay in the Cretaceous. Raptors are known for their carnivorous appetite, long arms and the distinctive sickle-shaped claw on their second toe.
Kaprosuchus – The Kaprosuchus or Boar crocodile is named in reference to its large front teeth, which resemble that of a boar. It possesses three sets of tusk-like teeth that project above and below the skull.
Arboreal Dinosaur / ‘Tree Creeper’ – There’s very little evidence and few descriptions of what arboreal dinosaurs might have looked like, therefore, we’ve created our own idea of how it might have looked. Its main skill is that it’s able to scale trees (and consequently other high-rise structures) whilst remaining ferocious. Imagine a raptor with a longer, monkey-like tail, forward facing eyes and grasping hands, perfectly suited to creeping and scampering through branches and trees.
