Discovery roars into December with Clash of the Dinosaurs

Discovery Channel will be throwing dinosaurs at each other for the holidays.As December rolls around, your kids will want to watch the usual line-up of holiday specials. But, I'm guessing they wouldn't mind watching a T-Rex hunt down and tuck into a Triceratops, whatever the time of year.

Discovery Channel will put cutting-edge imaging technology to bring giant lizards to life inside and out with Clash of the Dinosaurs. Premiering December 6 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), the four-part series looks inside the body of a dinosaur to with cinematic photo-real 3D graphics.

According to Discovery's announcement, consulting anatomy and paleontology experts help to peel back the skin, muscles and bones of the creatures to show how they thrived. So, on second thought, maybe the kids should stick with A Year without a Santa Claus.

The show's press materials reveal some of the new theories about these powerful animals. For example, the Tyrannosaurus Rex was supposed to have a brain like a walnut. But modern science suggests the T-Rex had a large brain capable of complex behaviors.

But, it also looked cool and killed stuff, so expect that to be well-represented when the show airs. Science is all well and good, but when it's dinosaur TV special, we want to see roar, slash and chomp.

This sounds a lot like Jurassic Fight CLub. Exact copy in fact.
