* The cave that Ducky lures Sharptooth out of at the climax of the movie is the cave that leads to the Great Valley. When the kids notice him, he's sniffing around a castle-looking rock formation. After Sharptooth is vanquished and Littlefoot's mother appears in the clouds, she directs him to the same castle-looking rock formation. The pond where Sharptooth drowned is still seen in the background, so they're still in the same location. If they hadn't hatched their plan when they did, there would potentially have been a Great Valley massacre.

Added DiffLines:

* If all of the original gang's families were going to the Great Valley, how come only Little Foot's mother told him about it and how to get there? Because he's the only one without siblings to play with. We see in the opening and ending that Ducky, Cera, and Petrie all had many siblings to play with (Spike's parents are MIA), so their parents probably let them play and be kids rather than worrying them with talk of food and travel. Little Foot had no siblings to play with, and was furthermore one in a herd of four. Since he only had his mother and grandparents to hang out with, she told him where he was going.

** Taking this one further, the only times the sequels ever edge into DarkerAndEdgier is when the heroes ''leave'' said paradise.
* Petrie surviving [[spoiler:being dragged into the sea by the Sharptooth]] could be explained by the fact that ''Pteranodons'' were surprisingly skilled swimmers.

* In ''The Journey of the Brave'', Topsy and Grandpa Longneck cower in fear behind a group of rocks from a single Sharptooth, despite both of them having fought off Sharpteeth on their own multiple times in the past.

***Actually, this movie had a fairly realistic depiction of how tar pits work and Hyp is going to be fine. Tar is quite dense, so water simply sits on top of it. Animals go to drink the water and, sometimes, wade in to cool off, not realizing there's a tar pit underneath until it's too late.

** Or, think of it this way. Rooter is an old dinosaur, traveling (or, when we meet him, sleeping) alone in a barren wilderness with carnivorous dinosaurs on the prowl. Seriously, he's nowhere remotely near any other herds, and the narrator made a point of explaining that the sharp toothed dinosaurs like to pick off loners. He didn't leave Littlefoot to die, he left Littlefoot so the poor kid wouldn't die WITH him.

** Maybe her name just happens to sound like the word "ducky" and she is not named after ducks at all in-universe.

* In the first film, Littlefoot talks to a elderly dinosaur after his mother dies and said dinosaur gives some words of wisdom to help him go on. He then proceeds to wander away, leaving a freshly orphaned child all alone to fend for himself. Is it because [[FantasticRacism Littlefoot is a different species,]] or does he just not want to deal with the "burden" of helping Littlefoot in any meaningful way other then giving advice, such as raising him? Maybe he knew food is scarce, and didn't want to share any food he might come across and so decided to leave Littlefoot to die?

** Honestly? [[ShaggyDogStory Nothing.]] They ''thought'' they were preventing the sun from falling out of the sky when in reality, it was just an eclipse that resolved itself. Although that doesn't explain where the shard prophetic dreams came from...

** Or, it could be that it's like a second language- he knows Herbivore Language because he learned it at a young age, and practices speaking both Carnivore and Herbivore. It's unlikely that other sharptooths of other varieties learned to speak the language of their prey.




to:

* What is up with the fourth episode of the series? Cera asks if Petrie has ever been to the smoking mountain, to which he replies that no, he hasn't... while standing next to Chomper. The whole group went to the Smoking Mountain in the second film, where they MET Chomper. In fact, the reason they were on the Smoking Mountain was because Chomper was chasing bugs there and they didn't want him to get hurt! Especially egregious since that movie is the sole reason that Chomper is in the valley to begin with- he was hatched there and made friends with the locals, who proved capable of defending themselves against sharptooths (like Redclaw).
