9 p.m. DINO DEATH MATCH
In 2006, a huge fossil was discovered — so big that it had to be
broken up for transportation. It contained two near-complete
dinosaurs, locked in battle — a 10-ton plant-eating triceratops and
another formidable, unknown predator, one-tenth the size of the
triceratops but deadly enough to apparently fell the armored giant.
Its discovery reopens a cold case — and could change what we thought
we knew about the prehistoric world.
10 p.m. JURASSIC C.S.I.: ULTIMATE DINO SECRETS
Today, all that’s left of the dinosaurs are fossilized bones. But
using modern technology we can now go beyond the bones, using fossils
to answer several eye-opening questions about dinosaur appearance,
behavior and lifestyle.

8 p.m . ULTIMATE DINO SURVIVOR
The Tyrannosaurus rex was the top predator of its day. But new fossils
reveal that the life of the T. rex and its cousins was brutal, and
devastating injuries were routine. Probing fossils using cutting-edge
techniques, we reveal the source of injuries, reconstructing predation
attempts that went wrong and titanic battles where T. rex teeth were
sunk into adversaries.
9:00 p.m. T. REX AUTOPSY
Go inside a full-size T. rex for the first time ever to reveal how the
65-million-year-old beast may have lived.
