* ScienceMarchesOn: Yup, even such a recent documentary couldn't manage to avoid it.
** For instance, some recent studies indicate that the famous fossil of a ''Tenontosaurus'' surrounded by several ''Deinonychus'' isn't actually proof of pack-hunting raptors (as it's been believed for decades), but rather evidence of random raptors coming together to munch on a carcass.
** Another common error is giving the ''Majungasaurus'' well-developed, if still very short arms. They should be underdeveloped and absurdly stubby.


'''''Prehistoric Assassins''''' is an obscure two-part {{Documentary}} special that aired on the Creator/DiscoveryChannel in early 2011. As the title suggests, it deals with dangerous critters from prehistoric times, including [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLife dinosaurs, ancient predatory fish and saber-toothed cats]], amongst others. Their weapons of choice are examined in details, and compared to the teeth and claws found on some of today's top predators.

Added DiffLines:

* NoisyNature: Played to chilling effect with the ''Deinonychus'', whose vaguely birdlike shriek is commonly heard and quite spooky...

Added DiffLines:

* RaptorAttack: As deinonychosaurs in media go, this show's ''Deinonychus'' aren't too bad, but they have a scaly face and, though their wing feathers extend all the way to the hands, they aren't attached to the second finger, as they should be.
