- Ensemble Dark Horse: Dan and Ferd, to the point that efforts were made by fans to prevent their demise. Alas, such actions were for naught.
- Genius Bonus: Many of the strips contain paleontological in-jokes.
- This strip is funniest to those who know a thing or two about art history.
- Squick: When Carney and Carnita decapitate an entire family of Mapusaurus, the eyeballs of the adult Mapusaurus are somehow left intact and remain hanging from what's left of their heads. The same happens to Parry.
YMMV / Parry And Carney
