Trivia

The episode depicts the 'Aucasaurus' as having sharp claws on its forelimbs. In real life, the arms of these animals were so puny and underdeveloped, that they actually lacked claws. What more, some scientists argue that they didn't even have fingers. However this cannot be considered a legit goof, since the discovery was made after the show had been finished. See more »

Goofs

When the Notosuchus picks up the egg with its jaws, it actually passes halfway into its face. This becomes obvious when the animal turns its head to the side. See more »
