The program's depiction of the Ankylosaurus and Quetzalcuatlus have both been based on models that by now have become outdated. These are not considered errors, since new discoveries have been made since the series had been finished, however it does mean that slowly all of the animal designs that appear in the series are becoming obsolete. The Ankylosaurus didn't have that many plates on its back, for instance, but had fewer, larger plates. Whereas the Quetzalcoatlus had a much, much longer neck, a differently shaped head with a different crest on its skull, and no teeth. It also walked more upright, when on the ground. See more
