* ScavengersAreScum:
** The series, of all things, has a tendency to do the "evil scavenger" trope; while the predatory animals do have a more ominous mood to their presence, they're still depicted in a way that makes them at least somewhat admirable and interesting creatures. The same cannot be said about ''Coelophysis'' (opportunistic protagonist predator from "New Blood"), ''Eustreptospondylus'' (the token land-lubber in "Cruel Sea"), young Ornithocheirus (scavenges the dead protagonist in "Giant of the Skies") or ''Didelphodon'' (an annoying, hyena-like mammal from "Death of a Dynasty"), all of which are depicted in a rather negative, or at least macabre light.
** Its spinoff, ''Walking With Beasts'' is also guilty of this. The "Sabre Tooth" episode of the former paints the terror birds as carrion-eaters (their actual diets were made almost entirely of live prey) to make the sabre-tooth cats more likeable. This is not only biased but also completely incorrect, as terror birds are very poor scavengers and superb predator.
** ''Walking With Beasts'' also has the ''Entelodon'', which is portrayed in extremely negative light as a hog from Hell and TheBully of the ''oligocene'' period.

* BittersweetEnding: Ultimately the ending to the series with the K-Pg Extinction event--the prehistoric dinosaurs are gone for good, but their lineage lives on in the birds and their extinction paved the way for the mammals (and by extension humans) to take over in their stead.
