** Yes, even [=NatGeo=] couldn't avoid this one. The culprits are the CGI clips. One has a ''chewing'' sauropod. Sauropod jaws and teeth were unable to do this.
** The painfully incorrect position into which carnivorous dinosaurs twist their hands.
** And also the large, well articulated hands of ''Carnotaurus''. While the narration points out how small and insignificant these were, the animation disagrees. For reference's sake: they should appear as nothing more than mere stumps with more little stumps on them.
** Some experts would rather see the show's ''Epidendrosaurus'' referred to as ''Scansoriopteryx''.
*** Likewise, all the maniraptors need a shitoad more feathers.
** The crest[[note]] Not the sail, but an actual crest on the head.[[/note]] on the show's ''Spinosaurus'' isn't nearly pronounced enough.
** The phylogenetic tree that appears in several scenes implies that large [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetanurae tetanurans]] are more closely related to each other than small tetanurans, which was suggested in 1986 but is now of course wrong (tyrannosauroids are actually ''coelurosaurs'', to name the best example).
