** During the desert crossing, Eema is going downhill when the rest of the herd of traveling up a sand dune. Yar notices, and advises her that she's wandering off a bit. Eema sighs, and muses that she's got "a monkey on [my] back."
** At the end of the film, Zini has found a group of lemurs native to the Nesting Grounds, and many, many young female bachelors who are surrounding him. Zini asks if any of them are up for a game of monkey in the middle, and he gets a huge, enthusiastic response.

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 [[PredatorsAreMean scary-looking predators]] [[FurryConfusion who don't talk]]. They are seeking literally greener pastures, a valley known as the Nesting Grounds, which is apparently the only fertile land for miles around. 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.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than a lot of Disney fare. The film features several [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath Family Unfriendly Deaths]], themes of starvation, dehydration, hopelessness, and plays out like a post-apocalyptic story at times. The antagonists are very realistic villains too: the ''Carnotaurs'' and the raptors are just predators desperate for food who only attack the stragglers/fallen members of the herd; while Kron genuinely wants to save the herd and his little sister even if he's doing it the wrong way, making him multi-dimensional. There's also a scene where Eema goes into the lake bed and looks fully prepared to die, unable to carry on.

This also applies to every young lemur who didn't survive the meteor strike. Played straight with Neera's pair of orphans, however.

However, this is arguably [[JustifiedTrope justified]] or at least [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], as Kron is surprised to hear carnotaurs attacked Bruton, as 'they never come this far north' -- although that doesn't explain how they've managed to cross the sea that separated the two continents at the time. The ''Koolasuchus'' (South Pole) and ''Oviraptor'', ''Talarurus'' and ''Velociraptor'' (Mongolia) seem more out of place on North America.

* [[MostWritersAreHuman Most Writers Are Primates]]: The reason given as to why there are modern-day lemurs in the movie is because Disney thought people needed something cute and human-like to relate to in a movie about dinosaurs. Really.

However, a horrific meteor shower obliterates the island, compelling Aladar and his lemur "family" to explore the mainland, just in time for the seasonal dinosaur migration.

The carnotaurs weren't just monsters, either; they were smart enough to only attack dinosaurs that had lagged behind the herd. The one carnotaur that turns into the BigBad appears to have been DrivenToMadness when [[spoiler:its mate is crushed to death]] and attacks the entire herd.

Averted though generally, as Baylene remains much slower moving than the other, smaller animals until reaching the Nesting Grounds. It's also arguable if she 'jumped' or just reared up to dramatically lengthen a single stride so she could send up a wave at Zini.
* StockDinosaurs: Partially averted. The classic [[Trivia/StockDinosaurs Four Dino Band]] T. rex, 'Brontosaurus', ''Stegosaurus'' and ''Triceratops'' is absent. We have instead four relatives: T.rex-looking ''Carnotaurus'', brachiosaur Baylene, a small-sized ''Ankylosaurus'' and ''Styracosaurus'' Eema, and nameless ''Pachyrhinosaurus'', which are smaller ''Triceratops'' with a weird swollen nose instead of horns. We also have several dinos and other prehistoric critters that are uncommon in movies; and finally, ''Iguanodons'' as main characters is a novelty. And most of the dinosaurs are accurate-looking confronted with many other popular dino-films. Even ''Pteranodon'' is another case of aversion, since it was the poorly-known ''Pteranodon steinbergi'' instead of the iconic ''Pteranodon longiceps''.
* SuperPersistentPredator: Averted with the Carnotaurs. Their constant hunting is justified by the lack of food in the area, and neither of them go out of their way to hunt ''only'' the protagonists. When one of the carnotaurs is killed, the other does the smart thing and drops the chase. Then later when it's corralled by an entire herd, it backs off in favor of catching the lone Kron.

Sadly, [[KillEmAll meteors destroy the island]] and Aladar and his adoptive family must make their way 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 [[PredatorsAreMean scary-looking predators]] [[FurryConfusion who don't talk]]. They are seeking literally greener pastures, a valley known as the Nesting Grounds, which is apparently the only fertile land for miles around. 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 and the herd members he has befriended find their way to the Nesting Grounds through ThePowerOfFriendship, and they return just in time to rescue the rest of Kron's herd from menacing predators and show them the way.

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.
