In the fight for the title of ultimate predator of the Jurassic period, there are a number of contenders. However, all could be eclipsed by a startling discovery deep in the Polar Arctic: Predator X. Deep in the permafrost at the top of the world, the fossil of a giant sea-monster has been uncovered. Weighing five times as much as Tyrannosaurus Rex, its body was more than 50 feet long. Four huge flippers enabled it to accelerate quickly through the waves, while its bite power - estimated at over 33,000 pounds (four times the strength of T-Rex) - made it the most formidable predator in the Jurassic oceans.
On the remote archipelago of Svalbard, just 800 miles from the North Pole, a team of paleontologists from the University of Oslo Natural History Museum, have made a remarkable discovery. Buried beneath the icy landscape of the Arctic are the fossilized remains of a huge creature from the distant past. PREDATOR X is the story of a major discovery; what appears to be an entirely new species; of a massive and powerful predator. The scientific team must excavate it, determine its significance and try to rebuild it to see what it was like; as they discover the astounding power of which this creature was capable. PREDATOR X follows the expedition every step of the way, from painstaking field research to the astonishing find of the amazing creature. The special delves deep into this terrifying ancient mystery, uncovering what is one of the most amazing underwater finds in modern history.
