The ability to fly is one of the greatest wonders in the natural world. Over 100 billion creatures fly through the air today: nectar-drinking hummingbirds, armored airborne beetles, bats hunting in the dead of night, and bizarre winged lizards.
Conquest of the Skies invites viewers to travel through time to unravel the astonishing 320-million-year story of how flying animals first appeared, and then evolved into the huge variety of aeronauts that fill our skies today. Only now, with today’s computer-generated imagery, high resolution filming techniques, and cutting-edge scientific analysis can we reveal the hidden mechanics behind their gravity-defying skills.
From the ancient creatures found in the fossil beds of China to the vultures that soar effortlessly above Spanish canyons and the hummingbirds that live in the cloud forests of Ecuador, this film spans the globe and travels through time to explore the thrilling and surprising story of how flying animals came to conquer the skies.
Conquest of the Skies 3D is included with paid general admission, and is free for members.
Conquest of the Skies 3D is brought to viewers by Colossus Productions and Serengeti Entertainment after the success of their previous films, Amazing Mighty Micro Monsters and Museum Alive.
