* ArtisticLicensePalaeontology: The ''Iguanodon'' beaks were covered in fleshy lips in order to animate the animals' speech better, though they can still be seen underneath at times. No ornithopod dinosaur known to science had facial features like this.
** In RealLife, ''Carnotaurus'' was about the same size as ''Iguanodon'', so the dramatically oversized ones in the movie - about the same size as ''TyrannosaurusRex'', which was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally considered to be the antagonist species]] - can be chalked up to a combination of RuleOfScary and RuleOfCool. They're also [[MisplacedWildlife present in North America]] even though the genus is from South America; while this is at least lampshaded with the characters noting that they haven't come as far north before as they do in the movie, it's still a VoodooShark of sorts because the two continents were still separated by ocean until the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_American_Interchange Great American Interchange]] of the Pliocene, long after the non-avian dinosaurs became extinct.



* SomewhereAPalaeontologistIsCrying: The ''Iguanodon'' beaks were removed in order to animate the animals' speech better.

The hero is Aladar, an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iguanodon_bernissartensis Iguanodon]]. His egg was separated from his family through a very convoluted turn of events, and made its way to an island. There, he was found by a family of lemurs, who adopt him when he is born (although the patriarch lemur opposes initially). Time passes offscreen and afterwards we see the adult Aladar living care-free with the primates in the island.

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, trackless 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.

** [[spoiler:Bruton's is even worse. He gets stuck in a cave-in, and struggles to run out while boulders crash down on him. Finally he buried, and Aladar uncovers him only for Bruton to twitch a little, then die. One of the ''Carnotaurus'' dies in the same way, though its remains are not seen.]]

* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler: When Neera tries to defend her mortally injured brother from the Carnotaur, the monster, which is at least twice her size and berserk with rage and hunger, easily bats her aside, pins her to the floor and is about seconds from delivering a killing blow when Aladar intervenes]].

Added DiffLines:

* ThisCannotBe: The Carnotaur's reaction to the herd bellowing in defiance at it could best be described as this, as the theropod is reduced to shrieking in rage and frustration as the advancing herd forces it to give ground.
