It was also cunningly quiet when hunting, not crashing noisily through trees as is often portrayed in movies.

TV wildlife presenter Sir David, 96, bigs up the much-maligned predator in his new Prehistoric Planet series.

The series uses CGI to go back 65million years. An episode will stream each day this week on Apple TV+.
