Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Question: Why was Ankylosaurus depicted as an omnivore in this movie? In real life it was a herbivore.

Answer: 1. We don't know it was trying to eat the group. It may have just been trying to scare them away from its territory. 2. This isn't a true ankylosaur. It's something with 65 million additional years of evolution. There is no reason for it to be exactly the same as the Cretacean version.


Chosen answer: He failed at hunting and believes staying with the herd has damaged his predatory instincts.


Question: In Buck's first theory scene, when Sid attacks Mummy dinosaur with the broccoli, what is all that green stuff that takes over the picture? Has the dinosaur turned into the broccoli? If so, why did Manny say " where's the dinosaur" if the dinosaur became the broccoli?


Answer: The "green stuff" covering the view of the camera are fragments of the broccoli that were released due to the broccoli being used for hitting, likely representing the dinosaur's transition development of becoming a vegetable. The dinosaur was claimed to have become a vegetable, not that broccoli itself. The broccoli was only used, by Sid, as self-defence, turning the dinosaur into another vegetable.


Other mistake: When Buck tells about his fight with Rudy, he swings while saying "Back, forth" in front of the others. They are looking the wrong way. He is also swinging on nothing at all.
