Dinosaur Revolution Wiki

The scene of Madagascar appens in the third episode (Survival Tactics) with the Rahonavis as the main character.


It is first seen a Rahonavis gliding to a tree and singing like a bird in what is now Madagascar in the Late Cretaceous period (70 M.y). The small raptor glides to the back of a passing Rapetosaurus. When the sauropod stops to eat some falling fruits, the Rahonavis lands to eat small pieces of the fallen fruits. Then,


The Rapetosaurus, a sauropod native of Madagascar.

suddenly, a Majungasaurus chases the Rapetosaurus and kills him not far away. The Rahonavis is alert for new danger just when appears two baby Majungasaurus that want to chase him. The small raptor climbs a tree to escape and mimics the croack of the giant Beelzebufo frogs. The two baby Majungasaurus were then eaten by two passing Beelzebufos atracted by the mimics of the Rahonavis. In the end, a herd of Rapetosaurus steps one of the Beelzebufos and the Rahonavis glides to the back of another Rapetosaurus.


Madagascar location has produced a large number of significant paleontological discoveries for Krause and his team. As well as dinosaurs, fossils of fishes, frogs, turtles, snakes, crocodiles, birds, and mammals have been unearthed. Significant finds include:

  • The skull of Majungasaurus, a large abelisaurid theropod, was discovered in 1996. It is similar to species found in India and Argentina, which indicate that land bridges between the fragments of the former supercontinent of Gondwana still existed in the late Cretaceous, far later than was previously believed. The most likely occurrence was a land bridge allowing animals to cross from South America to Antarctica, and then up to India and Madagascar. Majungasaurus fossils have also been discovered with teeth marks that clearly come from the same species, making it the first dinosaur known to have practiced cannibalism.
  • Masiakasaurus is a species of theropod with unusual teeth that stick straight out from its jaw.
  • A single, 70-million-year-old marsupial tooth. Madagascar was separated by water when the marsupials first evolved in the northern hemisphere, and there are no current species of marsupial on the island, which has revived the idea that colonies of animals might have somehow crossed vast stretches of water.
