  • I hope it's not contagious.


  • [about to cross the desert] If you smell something sizzling, it could be me.


  • [narrating] Some things start out big, and some things start out small, very small. But sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest changes of all.


  • This monster's got no teeth! What's he gonna do? Gum us to death?
  • What you need is a little help from the love monkey.

[first lines; A life in the egg of Iguanodon name Aladar. By seen the dinosaurs have a seen to biggest changes]
Plio: [narrating] Some things start out big, and some things start out small, very small. But sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest changes of all.
[A many eggs in the nesting grounds. Aladar's mother was Iguanodon taking care of her nest that was filled with eggs. It hearing birds in the forest in the skies; as Aladar's mother filled with eggs in the Nesting Grounds, a baby Parasaurolophus sees a dinosaur's nest and sniffs one of the eggs (presumably Aladar's egg), but Aladar's Mother scares it away. It then runs to the other nests, but gets frightened away by dinosaur mother guarding them. A herd of Brachiosaurus with a dinosaurs in the lakes. The Parasaurolophus later runs through the river, and it visually perceives a spot winged lizard called a Longisquama. The Longisquama catches dragonfly and eats it. It then chases the flying lizard and runs into the forest; The Parasaurolophus comes in close proximity to the Longisquama, but it flies up to what appeared to be a tree. The Parasaurolophus then sees a couple drops of saliva landing on a tree branch and notices what and where the Longisquama landed on; the nose of a vicious and bloodthristy Carnotaurus that has been aroused. The Parasaurolophus then runs out of the forest and gets chased by the Carnotaurus, which tries to evade and started chasing all of the dinosaurs present in the Nesting Grounds. As Aladar's mother abandons her nest, the Carnotaurus smashes all but one of the eggs in the Iguanodon's nest in the process. Ultimately, the chase ends when the Carnotaurus runs down and kills a Pachyrhinosaurus, because the herbivorous dinosaur is unable to run too fast. The Carnotaurus roars at them: Only one of the eggs survived the attack; and Oviraptor suddenly appears and tries to look for any eggs that been left by the plant-eating dinosaurs. The theropod takes a sudden interest in Aladar's egg left unharmed and intact from the destruction. Knowing that Carnotaurus is almost a few feet away, the Oviraptor decides to steal the egg and hurries off into the jungle. Before it could start eating the egg, another Oviraptor swipes it from it's grasp. The Oviraptor starts brawling the other one for the egg, but their fingers eventually start losing their grip onto the Aladar's egg as it falls down into the river below. They resume their fight with each other after losing the egg. As it is swept away by the current, it was swallowed, then spat out, by a Koolasuchus; floated up between a pair of quarreling Talarurus; moved towards the river's center by a herd of drinking Pachyrhinosaurus; and finally picked up by a Pteranodon that carries it far away to Lemur island. A baby Pteranodons are watching; a two Ichtyornis pester the Pteranodon and it drops the egg falls on the island.]

[When a dinosaur egg falls on the island. All the lemurs scatter in a frenzy. A clan of 4 lemurs including Plio, Yar, Zini, and Suri. as Plio sees a dinosaur egg on the patch of moss]
Young Zini: Yar, what is it?
Yar: I don't know. PLIO, GET BACK HERE! We don't know what it is!
Young Zini: Plio, be careful.
[Plio sneak over sensing, she got present when the egg cracks, then opens the shell and is happy to see a baby iguanodon.]
Plio: Dad, get over here.
Yar: Zini, it's not safe!
Young Zini: Oh, I always have to go when stuff's happening.
[Yar looks tries to get closer to Plio, she's got present to him]
Yar: Well, what is it?
Plio: It was an egg. [to baby Aladar] Look. [Yar looks shocked] What?
Yar: It's a cold-blooded monster from across the sea: vicious, flesh-eating! [baby Aladar burps] Eurgh...
Plio: Looks like a baby to me.
Yar: Babies grow up! You keep that thing, one day, we'll turn our backs, it'll be picking us out of it's teeth! Things like THAT eat things lie US a snacks!
Plio: So, what do we do?
Yar: Get rid of it!
[Yar is trying to dissuade Plio from raising the baby Aladar]
Plio: [vexed] What has gotten into you?
Yar: [exasperated] Plio... That thing is DANGEROUS!
Plio: [to baby Aladar; regretfully sighs] I'm sorry, little one. [to Yar, handling baby Aladar over to him] Okay, get rid of it.
[Yar gasps]
Plio: [coyishly and sarcastically] Hmph!
[Plio sits on a patch of moss to seemingly watch Yar get rid of baby Aladar]
Yar: All right, I will.
[Yar lifts baby Aladar over the edge of the branch, preparing to drop the dinosaur baby to his death. All the other lemurs are watching him. Instead of dropping baby Aladar, Yar heistates, grumbling to himself as though trying to will himself to do his job.]
Plio: [sarcastically] You'd better hurry up, Dad. It looks hungry.
Yar: Hmph!
[Yar looks at baby Aladar. Baby Aladar coes and looks at Yar with droopy eyelids. Yar grumbles indecively, trying hand not to be overcome with tenderness for the baby dinosaur. Then, he closes his eyes and sighs, defeated. Yar hears a strange sound and opens his eyes to see that baby Aladar is peeing on him]
Yar: [disgusted, defeated; handling Aladar back to Plio] Rmmm... Here.
Plio: [smiling] It's okay. We'll teach him to hate meat.
Yar: Hmph. Watch his head! [stops at lemurs to baby Aladar] I-I mean, watch it, he could bite. [he's walks away from patch of moss]
Young Zini: [about Aladar as a baby] This "monster's" got no teeth! What's he gonna do? Gum us to death?
Plio: Zini, come on: look at that sweet little face. Does that look like a monster to you?

[Suri first appears on Lemur Island where she and some lemur kids are chased by Aladar turns to be adult Iguanodon, though it turns out to be just a game.]
Suri: Let me out! Let me out!!
[Suri took inside Aladar's mouth and he spit her in the patch of moss]
Aladar: [coughs] Hairball. [coughs]
Suri: That was great! Get him!
Aladar: [lemur children start to playing with him] Oh, NO! Attacking lemurs! Suri, please! I can't take it! There are too many of you! COME ON! PICK on someone your own size! HELP! [Plio look at Aladar, he's playing with lemur kids and shes funny at him] Augh! Augh! Augh! Ahhhh. [playing dead]
Suri: [as Aladar is playing dead] Aladar, you're not dead.
Aladar: [disbelief] No!
[Suri and the lemur kids are happily laughing at him]
Plio: All right, guys, break it up. Remember the courtship? You gonna miss seeing all that smooching.
Suri: Oh, Mom.
Aladar: That's okay, Plio. We can smooch right here. [starts kiss scares out of lemur children hop away each other]
[after the lemur children hop away after playing with Aladar]
Plio: [sarcastically] Heh. It's a shame you don't like kids.
Aladar: [sarcastically] Ugh. Nasty little vermin.
Plio: Ha-ha. Go find Zini. He's rehearing pickup lines. Let's hope he's find found some new material.

Zini: [rehearing pickup lines alone] "Hey, sweetie. If you'll be my bride, I'll groom ya." That is good. Oh, that's good. "Girls, I'm known as the 'professor of love' and school's in session." Yeah, I still got it.
Aladar: I hope it's not contagious.
Zini: I'm a raging epidemic of romance.
Aladar: [chuckles] Come on, hot stuff. [before the courtship] Let's get goin': you don't wanna to miss Yar's annual pep talk.
Zini: Oh goody: I can't wait to hear the mating advice of an old monkey.
Aladar: Hey-hey-hey, I heard that in this day, that old monkey was quite a swinger.
Zini: You takin' to Yar?
Aladar: Yeah, to hear him tell it, he put the "prime" in "primate".
Zini: [sarcastically] Really?

Yar: [both are giving mating advice, Yar to the males, Plio to the females] Okay, boys, gather around: listen and learn from the Master.
Plio: Now girls, don't jump into the trees after the first boy with a cute back-flip: it's more fun if you keep them guessing.
Yar: And if a cute back-flip doesn't work, guess.
Plio: You're never going to forget this day, so make it one to remember.
Yar: But if you mess up, don't worry: they'll never remember.
Aladar: Come on, guys! We don't wanna let 'em down!
Yar: Go on, now. Chest up! Chin up!
Male Lemur: Whoo!
Yar: Make 'em look good, son.
Aladar: Come on, Yar. My charm and your brains? No problem.
Yar: [laughing]
[Aladar has male courting monkey's on his back]
Aladar: Hey girls, look what just pulled into town.
Male Lemur: Hey, ladies!
Aladar: Your buffet table of love!
[The female lemurs laughing]
Male Lemurs: Right here! Right here! Hey, beautiful!
Zini: Hey, free samples! Get me while I'm hot! Whoa! [Zini grabs a Aladar's tail and ride on the tail, chuckles]
Suri: Zini. [laughs]
Zini: [the male monkeys jumps in the tree courting] Whoo! Wah-hoo!
[Plio, Yar, Zini, Suri calling, and Aladar bellow roars, Zini falls on the bush. Suri laughing at him. The male Lemurs jumps out of the tree, in the vines swinging around, Zini trying stick it the branches, Aladar take a little branch to help Zini and throws over the vine]
Aladar: You're missin' all the action, pal. Come on!
Zini: Hey, haven't you heard? I am the action! WHOO! Whoo-ah!
[The female lemurs always climb the vines, as he practices lines for picking up girl lemurs. Every lemur ends up finding a mate except Zini, who snags his feet on a vine before he could even swing forward.]

[Aladar sees a surviving dinosaur herd walking past him, then he sees baby iguanodons walking under him, then Neera bumps into him]
Neera: Watch it!
[As Aladar looks at Neera, he sees a Pachyrhinosaurus that walks into him with its nasal horn, knocking him to the ground, then a pack of Microceratops jump over him and the lemurs]
Yar: Zini, get your head down!
[He sees Baylene as she walks under him as he and the lemurs look up]
Eema: Walkin' backwards, huh?! Well, let me know if that gets you there any faster! Keep those little legs moving, Url, or you'll get left behind!

Baylene: [sniffs the lemurs and sneezes] What an unfortunate blemish.
Eema: Good mud bath would clear those right up.
Yar: Excuse me?
[Eema growls in surprise]
Aladar: Um, he's my grandfather. [chuckles] Couple of times removed.
Zini: Try a couple of species removed.

Plio: I heard you say something about "Nesting Grounds".
Eema: It is the most beautiful place there is, child. It's where the herd goes to have their babies.
Suri: Will we find anybody that looks... like us there?
Eema: Oh, the last few days, I've seen 'em all shapes and sizes. Who knows what we'll find? The hard job now is just getting there.
Baylene: And we're being driven unmercifully.
Aladar: By who?
Eema: Kron, the herd's head honcho.
Baylene: We can hardly keep up. An older woman like myself, it's... well, it's positively indecent.
Aladar: Tell him! What's the worst he can do?
[Neera, Kron, and Bruton approach; Url nervously walks out of the way; Bruton growls at him; Kron rudely pushes past Aladar]
Aladar: Hey! What's his problem?
Eema: That's him, honey, Kron.
Aladar: Huh. Excuse me! Kron! Got a second?
Bruton: Get lost, kid!
Kron: [chuckles] Relax, Bruton. [comes up to Aladar] Who are you?
Aladar: Uh... Aladar.
Kron: Why aren't you up here with the... [notices the lemurs on Aladar's back] ...uh, young bloods? [snorts at them]
Aladar: Well, I was back here talking to these guys. I guess they're having a hard time keeping up. So, you know, maybe you could slow down a bit?
[Neera chuckles and smiles]
Kron: Hmm, let the weak set the pace. Now, there's an idea. Better let me do the thinking from now on, Aladar.
Aladar: Hey! They need help back here!
Kron: Watch yourself, boy. [leaves with a dismissive snort]
Neera: Don't worry. That's how my brother treats newcomers... no matter how charming they are. [follows Kron away]
Zini: [to Aladar] You sure know how to catch a girl's eye there, stud!
Eema: I wouldn't be catching nobody's eye if I was you. Especially Neera's. You just keep your head down, and you mind what Kron tells you.
Yar: Since when do we take orders from the likes of him?
Eema: [chuckles] Kron has swatted flies bigger than you, pops.
Yar: I could hold that monster's brain in the palm of my-!
Alader: No, Yar, she's right. Better to keep our heads down with this bunch than get 'em bitten off by those things. [looks towards Velociraptors nearby]
Eema: Well, you just consider yourself lucky that's all that's following us.

Baylene: Oh, joy. Blisters!
Eema: I got blisters ON my blisters.
Yar: You don't wanna know where I got blisters... [hearing a bellow up ahead]
Eema: What was that?
Baylene: It came from up ahead.
Zini: OK, what's the worst thing it could be?
Suri: [fearfully] A Carnotaur.
Zini: [increasingly nervous] OK, what's the second worst thing it could be?
Baylene: TWO Carnotaurs! [shudders]
Eema: That's it! I'm gone!
Aladar: Everybody! We don't know for sure! It could be the herd. Let's check it out.
[they turn the corner to find Bruton exhausted from his recent injuries]
Eema: Oh, it's Bruton!
Baylene: It appears we weren't the only ones left behind.

Plio: We can't just leave him here!
Eema: We can, if we move fast enough!
Bruton: Save your pity. I just need some time to rest. Now, get away from me!
[they enter a cave]
Aladar: It's dark, but at least it's dry.
Eema: I like dry. It's the dark part I'm having trouble with. [accidentally steps on Url's spikes] OWW! Sorry, Url.

Yar': If I could sleep that deep, I'd be in paradise.
Eema: If you could sleep that deep, honey, you'd be dead.

[the footsteps of the Carnotaurs awaken Aladar; he looks out and gazes in surprise at them as Bruton quietly comes up to him]
Bruton: [whispering] Shh. Carnotaurs. [they look out at the two predators surveying the area]
Aladar: [whispering] What do we do?
Bruton: Wake the others. [turns to go and tell the others to wake up and get moving; the Carnotaurs move closer to the cave. Bruton, Eema, Baylene, and the lemurs begin to proceed deeper into the cave. Aladar nudges Url to wake him up; he bellows in fright, and Aladar immediately silences him so he doesn't give them away; the Carnotaurs look up briefly and then continue looking around]
Baylene: Oh! [her neck touches the ceiling, causing a rock to fall and hit Eema; Aladar attempts to catch it, without success; one of the Carnotaurs examines the rock and sticks its snout through the water and sniffs Aladar before a thunderclap illuminates him; the Carnotaur charges at him]
Aladar: Go! Go! Hurry! Move it, Eema!
Plio: [after the Carnotaur grabs Aladar by the tail and drags him back] Aladar! Aladar! [from a distance, Bruton hears the lemurs' screams and ponders what to do next: save himself or protect the others; the Carnotaurs begin to fight over which one of them gets to devour Aladar]
Bruton: [after stopping the Carnotaurs from attacking Aladar] I'll hold them off. You help the others!
Plio: [to Aladar] You did what you could.

[the group reaches the Nesting Grounds, featuring a large lake]
Plio: Our new home...

Yar: Hey, old girl, you're wandering off a bit.
Eema: [panting] That's all I need: a monkey on my back.

Kron: [to the herd] We have to keep trying. For our survival, our future is over these rocks. NOW, LET'S GO HOME!
[the herd starts going over the rocks]
Kron: [to the two iguanodon children] You're going to make it, won't you, boys? [starts shoving them with his head]
Neera: [to Kron] No.
Kron: Watch them! They're tough! [to the herd] If they can do it, SO CAN YOU!
[the herd hesitates, then continue toward the rocks]
Aladar: KRON!
[They look back as Aladar approaches the herd]
Aladar: Get the herd out of here! A Carnotaur's coming!
Kron: [to the herd] Keep moving!
Aladar: Stop! I've been to the valley! There's a safer way!
Kron: [angrily, to the two iguanodon children] Go on! Show them!
Neera: Kron, listen to him!
[Kron hits the two iguanodon children with his head, making them cry]
Aladar: Look, we've got to go now!
Kron: Go where?! Straight to the Carnotaurs?!
Aladar: If we hurry, we can get around them! You can't get over those rocks! There's a sheer trap on the other side! [Kron hits the two iguanodon children with his head, making them cry again] YOU'RE GONNA KILL THE HERD! I know a way to the valley, and everybody can make it! [to the herd] Now, follow me!
[Kron approaches the herd]
Neera: Kron!
Kron: They’re staying with me.
Aladar: [to the herd] All right, let's go!
[Kron loves his temper and attack Aladar, who fights back. Kron nearly kills Aladar, but Neera knocks Kron to the ground, and they continue towards the valley along with the herd]
Kron: NEERA!
[Kron starts climbing over the rocks all by himself, but the carnotaur approaches the herd]
Kron: [to the herd] He's led that monster straight toward us! This way! [continues climbing over the rocks]
Aladar: No! Don't move! If we scatter, he'll pick us off! [to the herd] Stand together!
[The carnotaur roars at Aladar, who roars back. Neera joins Aladar, along with the herd, forcing the carnotaur to ignore the herd and head towards Kron; Aladar and Neera give chase]
Neera: Kron!
[Kron realizes that he is cornered]
Kron: [last words] No, no!
[Kron attacks the carnotaur, who wounds him. Aladar, and Neera start fighting with the carnotaur, and Aladar knocks it to its death below. Aladar and Neera rush toward Kron]
Neera: Kron.
[Neera nudges Kron's head, but he is already dead. Aladar and Neera embrace each other. Later, Aladar, Neera, and the herd head through the cave entrance and finally make it into the valley]
Aladar: [to Neera] Welcome home.

[closing narration]
Plio: No one knows what changes, big or small, lie ahead. One thing is certain; our journey's not over. We can only hope that, in some small way, our time here will be remembered.
