Set 65 million years ago, DINOSAUR tells the compelling story of Aladar, an iguanadon who is separated from his own kind and raised by a clan of lemurs, including the wisecracking Zini and the compassionate Plio.
The film features Iguanodons, Brachiosaurs, Oviraptors, Pteranodons, Parasaurolophus, Styracosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Struthiomimus, and prehistoric lemurs. Did all of these species coexist on earth at the same time?
What is the main way that Aladar’s anatomy differs from that of an actual Iguanodon? Why was this change made by the film makers? Do you think it was a good choice, why or why not?
Iguanodons were first identified in 1825, research how scientific understanding of what this species looked like changed over time as more fossil remains were discovered.
