* TheWorfEffect: It affects the ''Spinosaurus'' quite embarrassingly, given its portrayal as a BadAss.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Pretty much every scene involving the ''Elasmosaurus'', or long-necked plesiosaur. Basically, the neck of the one in the show is as flexible as a big snake, while the neck of the real creature would only be about as flexible as a big stick (severe exaggeration, but the point still stands)

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: Let us count the ways:
** Naked raptors.
** Flexible-necked plesiosaurs.
** Wrong forelimb posture on all of the theropods.
** Chewing sauropods, and their nostrils are (wrongly) atop their heads.
** Abelisaurid hands proportioned like those of typical theropods. They should be absurdly tiny with clawless stumps for fingers. Compare [[http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/monsters-resurrected-biggest-killer-dino.html this]] (Skip to the 00:45 mark, you may have to sit through an advertisement) to [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9b/Rugops_BW.jpg this]].
** Referring to the "terminator pig" as ''Dinohyus'', although it had been renamed ''Daeodon'' years before.
*** The European version corrects this at least. As the paleontologists' commentary couldn't be changed, the {{narrator}} makes an effort to point out the correct name.
** The skull of the show's ''Spinosaurus'' is modeled on that of ''Suchomimus'', which didn't even belong to the same subfamily. Compare [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_etEZg8WDrtg/Sx6qWxb52qI/AAAAAAAAAhQ/YqsVMAdM-tw/s1600/disc_sucho_skull.png the show's model]] to [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/25/Spinosaurus_skull_steveoc.jpg the real deal]].
** And perhaps the most notorious example: Essentially, the ''Spinosaurus'' is portrayed as the ultimate predator of all time, able to effortlessly kill any other predator that lived in its time and region. In short, it is depicted devouring a ''Rugops'' with one bite, killing a ''Carcharodontosaurus'' by slashing it across the face with its claws and effortlessly tearing apart the giant crocodylomorph ''Sarcosuchus''. And that isn't all, its size is practically Franchise/{{Godzilla}}-portioned, as it is able to pick up a 30ft long ''Rugops'' in its mouth and the thing appears to be no bigger than its head. ''Spinosaurus'' didn't really grow larger than 60ft, meaning the one depicted in the episode would have been 300ft long or more.
