Why do dinosaur's have such white teeth in US CGI TV programmes. Was there
a cretaceous T rex dentist?

Speaking of mouths, I just wish they could keep theirs shut for longer than barely 5 second intervals. What kind of hunter exactly goes around making its presence known, "murmuring" to itself CONSTANTLY and then thinks it can somehow surprise itsprey?

The Nano just looked wrong - like some cartoon dinosaur out of Land Before
Time. The CGI in WWD was just more convincing and that was 10 years ago
(nearly - first broadcast October 1999)!

I completely agree. I don't mean to disrespect the CG modelers/ texture artists & animators. They all have skill that much surpasses my own, but the legs on most of the theropods remind me of that movie where dudes' hand has a life and intentions of its own, independent of the original host.
