SIR David Attenborough's new nature show has had a PG rating slapped on it – because it's filled with so many bonking and battling dinosaurs.
The “parental guidance” note on the streaming giant’s Prehistoric Planet gives families fair warning that the scenes contained in the series are graphic.
As well as showing prehistoric monsters taking chunks out of one another it also sees them getting fruity before disappearing into the bushes.
A TV insider said: “This is a sign of just what a sensitive world we live in these days.
“There was once a time when watching any Attenborough nature show meant taking the chance that you might end up awkwardly watching animals mating while sitting in the living room with your parents.
“Now we’ve lost the right of passage that almost every British teenager went through.”

The show is particularly eye-opening because the CGI used to create the imagery cost millions and is so state of the art that everything seems incredibly life-like.
Last week, it was revealed there’d be some saucy scenes in Prehistoric Planet, including images of a T-Rex "gurgling with sexual excitement" at a younger female before disappearing into the undergrowth.
Sir David was said to have commented: “Watching these two T-Rex courting was like watching them with a pair of binoculars. I felt I was there.”
He also reveals in the show that the T-Rex was actually far smarter than we’d imagine – and could even count.
With that much prehistoric nookie they probably needed to be able to keep a tally of their conquests.

A terrifying Carnotaurus, whose name means “meat-eating bull”, is also seen using his tiny arms to perform a hilarious wiggling mating dance like a prairie chicken – a distant living relative.
Experts believe the beast used his quirky little limbs to impress females, despite his fearsome depiction in movies like Jurassic World.
Prehistoric Planet, made by the BBC’s Natural History Unit, is available to stream on Apple TV+.
