Apple has baffled locals by placing T.Rex footprints on a beach in Wales to advertise its new Prehistoric Planet documentary on Apple TV+.

As reported by Plymouth Herald, 64 T.Rex prints stretching for 50 meters were found on Traeth Llyfn in Pembrokeshire, baffling locals who were both amazed and perplexed by the discovery. Sadly, these are not in fact the fresh tracks of the King of the Dinosaurs, but rather an art installation to promote the new Apple TV+ show Prehistoric Planet, which is debuting this week on Apple's burgeoning streaming platform.

A team of ten sand artists spent four hours creating the installation, which depicts the prints heading down to the water's edge. This is apparently in order to celebrate the discovery that the T.Rex could swim.

Prehistoric Planet is an ambitious documentary narrated by Sir David Attenborough and featuring the music of Hans Zimmer. Sir David said he hoped "that children and their families will sit down to watch Prehistoric Planet and be completely immersed in this incredible world and find their imaginations fired by the astonishing prehistoric animals that they will discover and learn about as the series travels across each habitat."

The show's producer Mike Gunton said that the team "wanted to find a showstopping way to get people talking about the release of Prehistoric Planet, and what better way than bringing dinosaurs back to the present day."

The new show is debuting each day this week, and is available on all of Apple's best iPhones, iPads, Macs, and the Best TVs for Apple TV 2022.
