** Additionally, the series often featured predatory, villainous pterosaurs referred to simply as "Scavengers" ([[InformedAttribute despite the fact that they're always seen hunting the protagonists rather than actually scavenging]]) that look vaguely like [[ToothyBird toothy azhdarchids]].

* ToothyBird: Averted with Flapper, his Uncle Longbeak, and the "Big Wings". Played straight with the "Scavengers".

** Interestingly, the main group features two carnivores: Flapper and Scat.
** There's also an episode entitled ''The Gentle Hunter'', which could be renamed "Carnivore Confusion: the Dramatization".
** Well, ''Pteranodon'' are more piscivorous, and Scat is at the very least omnivorous as he is shown chasing some "honey fruit" in the first episode.

* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: In "Surprise", Dink gets chased by a ''Deinosuchus'' only to be rescued by a pair of [[HeroicDolphin dolphin]]-like ''Ichthyosaurus''.



* RaptorAttack: ''Deinonychus'' ("Claw Foots") and ''Velociraptor'' appear sporadically in the series and both are featherless, as was believed at the time to be fair. The latter also walk in an outdated "kangaroo" stance like the other carnivorous dinosaurs in the show, while the former have the accurate horizontal stance. Brownie points however for being a case of pre-''Film/JurassicPark'' dromaeosaurids.
