Factual errors 

The trunk of the Deinotherium is far too short. This animal had very long legs that made it taller than modern elephants, so it would have needed a longer trunk to be able to drink.

There's an animation error on the Deinotherium as it charges at Babble's infant: a large piece of skin on its right flank bulges and stretches out unrealistically at every step.
