Mammals Vs. Dinos is a documentary series that was aired on the Science Channel.

The documentary focused on the evolution of dinosaurs and mammals from their debut in the Triassic to the K-Pg Extinction Event, with greater focus on how each group evolved to survive in the Mesozoic World.

Mammals Vs. Dinos provide examples of the following tropes:

  • Always a Bigger Fish: The Repenomamus in the second episode is introduced as being the mammal that ate dinosaurs (well, baby ones, but still), only to find itself falling prey to the early tyrannosaur Dilong.
  • Advertisement:
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Adelobasileus, Metoposaurs, Laolestes, Supersaurus, Psittacosaurus, Repenomamus, Hyphalosaurus, Microraptor, Dilong, and Sinosauropteryx.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Coelophysis, Plateosaurus (albeit it goes unnamed in the program), Allosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus rex.

How well does it match the trope?
