I'm looking forward to watching "Inside Nature's Giants" on SBS tonight. Dissecting and examining modern day large animals can lead to some interesting inferences about large dinosaur soft tissue anatomy. And of course, some of these animals are not often able to be dissected due to rarity or endangered/threatened status. I didn't realise that this is in fact a long running series, so it's off to the back catalogue for me!
