* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Robotboy}}'' has Tommy and Gus doing shadow puppets of animals. The latter does a puppet of a deer which barks, which is actually true for real deers, as the sound they make do sound like barking.

* ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' really goes out of its way to teach obscure yet true animal facts to the viewing audience.

* ''WesternAnimation/AngelaAnaconda'': In the episode "Don't Be Caddie", Mayor Jamal says that his favourite golf ball was previously used by a golfing legend who shot an eagle on the 7th hole at Inverness. This could be a reference to Ted Ray's exploitation of that hole in the 1920 U.S. Open.

Added DiffLines:

** The female ''Pteranodons'' [[BizarreSexualDimorphism don't look the same]] as the male ones. Petrie's mother is much shorter and has a much smaller crest than his uncle, which is something rarely seen in media, even in a documentary.

** While Mutt looks more like a hadrosaur than a ''Muttaburrasaurus'', he is shown as bipedal and lacking an ''Iguanodon''-like thumb spike, which ''Muttaburrasaurus'' is believed to be in real life.

** The ''Liopleurodon'' is very accurately depicted, especially for the time the movie came out in (though it is closer in size to a ''Kronosaurus''). Most dinosaurs in the series, including sharpteeth, have a stylized, cartoony look about them. The ''Liopleurodon'' does not, and looks like a real animal. The effect makes for a fairly threatening villain, even if it never gets to cause any real damage.

** Feathered dinosaurs appear from time to time, though they're not quite feathered enough.

** Feathered dinosaurs appear from time to time, though they're not quite feathered enough. The ''Nothronychus'' and ''Yutyrannus'' (whose name actually means "''Feathered'' tyrant") from the fourteenth film stand out in particular.



** An odd case; at one point in the seventh film, Sierra makes a paddling motion with one foot while [[KidNappingBirdOfPrey carrying Ducky in the other]]. While this was definitely not something pterosaurs could do, it is behavior displayed by modern birds of prey when they're carrying particularly heavy loads in their talons.

* ''WesternAnimation/PennZeroPartTimeHero'': The main character's Aunt Rose and Uncle Chuck own a pet chinchilla, which is shown giving itself a dust bath like chinchillas in real life.

** Sure they may not be living in the right place or the right time, nor do they look very realistic, but the variety (and obscurity) of some of the dinosaurs featured is quite astounding. It may be the most redeeming feature of the sequels.
** Rather than sitting on Tricia's egg, Cera's parents incubate it by covering it with grass. It's theorized that this is exactly what certain dinosaurs did in real life (the fermenting vegetation would have warmed the eggs, not to mention the fact that a ''Triceratops'' would likely be heavy enough to crush its eggs if it tried to sit on them.)
** Feathered dinosaurs appear from time to time, though they're not quite feathered enough.
** Despite being an ''Oviraptor'', Ruby doesn't have that dinosaur's StockAnimalDiet of eggs. She prefers to much on plants (and, in one episode, clams), making her an omnivore like her species was in real life.
** The ''Triceratopses'' all have nearly accurate skin covering (the word "nearly" is in there due to the lack of quills), with crocodile-like scales on their bellies and thick armored scales on their backs.

** In another episode, Squidward mentions eating his own tentacles if starving, which is an actual survival mechanism of octopi.
