Sadly, [[KillEmAll meteors destroy the island]] and Aladar and his adoptive family are forced to escape to the mainland. Once there, the main plot kicks in and they join a herd of similarly displaced animals who are migrating through the vast, tractless desert with treacherous terrain and desperate, starving predators. They are seeking literally greener pastures, a valley known as the Nesting Grounds, which is apparently the only fertile land left untouched by the meteor. The herd is led by Kron, an old, hard-assed Iguanodon -- the first member of his own species Aladar has ever met -- who insists that everyone follow his orders even if it kills them all. He refuses to make concessions for the oldest and youngest members of the herd, an issue that he and Aladar especially lock [[strike:horns]] thumbspikes over. Eventually, Aladar's compassionate ways begin to transform the lives of those around him, and he may be what the herd needs to reach the Nesting Grounds and a better future.

* InverseLawOfSharpnessAndAccuracy: None of the ''Iguanodons' opt to use their actual thumb spikes. Kron slightly uses his in his fight with Alador, and only [[PaperCutting nicks him]] (with a slash no less). When he does go in for the kill, [[spoiler: Neera]] tackles him. Trying to fight a ''Carnotaur'' is done via tail whipping and tackling rather then stabbing it in the neck. [[JustifiedTrope Totally justified]] in that in order to get close enough to stab the carnotaurs in the neck, they would have to have their heads right in the range of the carnotaur's hungry jaws. Also, an ''Iguanodon's'' thumb spike is not nearly long enough to actually kill a theropod the size of the film's carnotaurs. A tail-smack is far less risky and may actually be able to knock a carnotaur over long enough to escape.

** When Bruton and the ''Iguanodon'' scout search for signs of water at the dried up lake, they're attacked by the ''Carnotaurs''. The viewer is meant to watch Bruton escape, but in the background, a ''Carnotaurus'' can be seen eating the extra ''Iguanodon''.
