    Dinosaur Train [#312H] Zeppelin: Waterfalls/Zeppelin: Atoll As the Pteranodon kids play in their family nest, Buddy stares at a sky full of clouds and asks the group, "What are clouds?" Mr. Pteranodon and his neighbor, Mr. Lambeosaurus, have different opinions. As they all get on the Dinosaur Train, they consider whether clouds are made of water or whether they're just made of fluff. Tiny knows who would have the facts--Mr. Conductor! He explains that clouds are made of billions of tiny drops of water that are so light they float in the air. He also takes the group to Cloudy Point Station where the kids play a cloud-spotting game, identifying the three types of clouds they learned about: cirrus, stratus and cumulus. In the end, a rainstorm certainly proves that clouds are made of water! duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
