** In an interesting case, there's absolutely no sight or mention of ''Gorgosaurus'' in the ''Daspletosaurus'' episode, even though the two genera lived in the same area and time.

** "Alpha's Egg" has the North African ''Carcharodontosaurus'' roaming South America. This is especially eyebrow raising as the South American ''Giganotosaurus'' is a well known, looks extremely similar, and would have been in the right region.

* BittersweetEnding: Almost every episode has one. [[spoiler:White Tip ends up back where she started but with a group of youngsters that need to be taken care of, Alpha survives to adulthood and defeats Dragonfly but all her eggs drown in a flood, while Pod arguably has the happiest ending where he ends up as an apex predator and gets a new pack, but his former pack is still killed off and he'll never be able to interact with his own kind.]]

* FeatheredFiend: Many dinosaurs; including ''Velociraptor'', ''Oviraptor'', ''Pyroraptor'', ''Troodon'', ''Ichthyornis'', ''Alvarezsaurus'' and ''Elopteryx'' (called "''Troodon''" in the episode). The ''Velociraptor'' and ''Pyroraptor'' are portrayed as sympathetic characters, however, and the ''Elopteryx'' are also benevolent towards the main character in the episode they're shown in.

* InfantImmortality: Averted, being a nature documentary that went for shock factor.
** Specifically: some ''Oviraptor'' chicks are killed by ''Velociraptor'', [[spoiler:Some of White Tip's eggs are eaten by Broken Hand]], [[spoiler:Little Das and presumably Buck and Blaze are killed by a volcanic eruption]], ''many'' baby ''Saltasaurus'' are killed by ''Notosuchus'', ''Alvarezsaurus'', and ''Aucasaurus'', and [[spoiler:Alpha's first clutch of eggs drowns]].

* MisplacedWildlife: Several times throughout the series but most prevalent in "Pod's Travels", with ''Ichthyornis'' and ''Troodon'' in Europe. Both species were native to North America. Though ''Ichthyornis'' was a seabird, it could have flown anywhere it wanted.

* SmallTaxonomyPools: Totally averted. ''Shuvuuia''? ''Einiosaurus''? ''Tarascosaurus''? ''Allodaposuchus''? ''Orodromeus''? ''Elopteryx''? How many shows have these? ''WalkingWithDinosaurs'' certainly doesn't.

* GenreSavvy: The ''Einiosaurus'' herd heads for the hills when they encounter Little Das, since, as the narrator points out, they know young pack members are used as scouts for the rest of the pack.

Added DiffLines:

* ScavengersAreScum: The ''Icthyornis'' in "Pod's Travels". A rare case where it's played realistically, as the behavior it's shown engaging in isn't unheard of in modern seabirds.

* TheCretaceousIsAlwaysDoomed: Averted. Though all four stories are set in the Cretaceous, it's always the ''Middle'' Cretaceous, with nary an asteroid to be found. Even the only KillEmAll story has a local disaster and not total annihilation.
