Re: Primeval: Canada
But then, the anomalies have always been handled a bit awkwardly. I mean, why is it that any time an anomaly appears in the distant past, some kind of prehistoric beastie just happens to go through it within moments? If anything, I'd expect most animals would run away from something that strange, or that if they stumbled through it by accident, they'd immediately recoil from the unfamiliar environment they ended up in and retreat back through it.
For the same reason deer run into oncoming traffic, bears invaded people's houses and birds fly into windows? Besides if they didn't wander in to the anomalies there'd be no show. And we have no proof one or the other that the anomalies are opeing up on other planets or just what the wide ranging effects they have on all of space/time.
