* {{Shorttank}}: Cera.
* ShownTheirWork: For the time, and remember it was thirty-odd years ago and the complete remains of some of the featured species (especially Tyrannosaurus) hadn't been found yet, this was ''the'' most accurate dinosaur movie ever made (ignoring the AnachronismStew and TalkingAnimal issues). Even today, the care put into the film is impressive.

* StockDinosaurs: An ''Apatosaurus'' for the obligatory sauropod (more anatomically accurate than most other movie "brontos" (the non-aquaticness and raised tails!), but still called ''Brontosaurus'' in releases), ''Triceratops'', ''Pteranodon'', ''Stegosaurus'', and ''Tyrannosaurus'' all play major roles in the film. And then we have the mammal-relative ''Dimetrodon'' ''with a snake-tongue''. ''Struthiomimus'', ''Parasaurolophus'', and ''Diplodocus'' make brief appearances as well. There are some aversions though: the hadrosaur of the gang belong to the relatively obscure ''Saurolophus'' ('''''Para'''saurolophus'' according to the producers); the armoured dinosaur Rooter is an old-fashioned ''Scolosaurus'' and not the usual ''Ankylosaurus''; a flock of the pterosaur ''Sordes'' (with pycnofibres) witness Littlefoot's birth; what appears to be a hypsilophodontid is seen along with the animals fleeing from the earthquake; and this is perhaps the first time that the bone-headed Pachycephalosaurus appeared in a notable popular work, [[FantasticRacism portrayed as a vicious pack of racist bullies]]. The only stock dinosaur from the today [[Trivia/StockDinosaurs Five Man Band]] which is missing is ''Velociraptor'', but only because the film is older than ''Film/JurassicPark'' ([[SarcasmMode surprisingly]], raptors ''do'' appear in the first sequel made ''after'' Spielberg's film).
