Trivia

The computer-generated model used for the Dimetrodon hatchlings is actually drastically smaller version of the fully grown Dimetrodon animation, with apparently the same body proportions and color-scheme. So when one of them (the newly hatched animals) is shown climbing up a tree, the viewer is treated to a rather awkward sight, since it looks just like an adult, to which of course it wouldn't be possible to climb up a tree.

Goofs

When the small Edaphosaurus runs behind some fallen tree branches, and then when the Dimetrodon kills it, both times the animals are placed incorrectly into the shot. There is a faint outline around the branches where you can see the rocky background through the animals themselves. See more »

Quotes
