The series was followed by a special titled '''''The Last Day of the Dinosaurs'''''. This time, the producers told us their story of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin how these majestic creatures went extinct]]. This one had fewer problems.

'''''Clash of the Dinosaurs''''' (2009) is one of Creator/DiscoveryChannel's many dinosaur-related [[{{Documentary}} documentaries]]. It was presented in a MiniSeries format, and contained a grand total of four hour-long episodes. Each concentrated on different aspects of the dinosaur lifestyle, such as how they coped with environmental changes, how they hunted and defended themselves, and how they reproduced.

** What more, he clearly said that [[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs sauropods]] most likely covered their eggs with vegetation. The CGI clip shows a sauropod leaving its eggs ''out in the open''. YouFailBiologyForever or TheyJustDidntCare?

* PaletteSwap: The extinction special has this with any new species they show. [[TheyJustDidntCare They don't even change the color.]]

* AluminumChristmasTrees: While the the criticism for the UV seeing ''Quetzalcoatlus'' is warranted (as there's no evidence of such a thing in the fossil record), some less science minded folks tend to write it off as some fanciful, if not supernatural, creation of the writers with no basis in fact. In actuality, many birds can indeed see in ultraviolet and many raptorial birds like kestrels employ this as a hunting strategy in much the same way the ''Quetz'' is erroneously depicted as doing.

** An entire segment is dedicated to the mechanics of ''Quetzalcoatlus''' launching technique. Additionally, while its method of doing so is most likely wrong, the portrayal of it feeding on baby dinosaurs is definitely accurate.

** ''Quetzalcoatlus'' being depicted as an aerial hunter that searches for prey using UV-seeking vision like a kestrel. While ''Quetzalcoatlus'' most likely did have very keen eyesight and the flight abilities for giant azhdarchids are looking better than they ever have before, it's highly unlikely that any azhdarchid did most of its hunting in flight nor had UV-seeking vision. Instead, it more likely hunted on the ground like a stork. Additionally, it's depicted as being covered in scales rather than the fuzz it was covered with in life.
