Dinosaur Revolution Wiki

Survival Tactics is the third episode of Dinosaur Revolution.


The episode begins with a Turtle that crawls on the floor before being picked up by a Utahraptor missing his left eye. The raptor can't break into the shell however, so it throws it away. A herd of Cedarosaurus is on their seasonal migration for food and water but are attacked by a pack of Utahraptors. The raptors gang up on a youngster but another pack appears that belongs to the one eyed Utahraptor, which attacks the first pack in an attempt to steal the kill. The two packs are so busy fighting that they do not notice the youngster getting away. It gets worst for the youngster when a Crocodile strikes, grabbing the youngster in the leg. The cries make the raptors stop fighting and target the youngster again while also scaring away the crocodile. Suddenly, the herd comes and scares the raptors away, saving their baby before walking off on there migration. The one eyed Utahraptor is thrown in the water and tries to swim up, but it is eaten by a crocodile.

The episode cuts to Madagascar 70 million years ago. A male Rahonavis can mimic the sounds of other animals, like a modern day Mockingbird. He attracts a giant male sauropod called Rapetosaurus, which is its ticket to lunch. It the Rapetosaurus eat watermelons. Suddenly a female Majungasaurus comes and the raptor just barely escapes. The abelisaur focuses on the Rapetosaurus, but while the two fight the raptor comes face-to-face with baby Majungasaurs. The babies may not sound dangerous, but they are to Rahonavis, and quickly, the raptor runs toward a tree and escapes. It hears the call of another animal and mimics to attract the animal. Suddenly, a giant tongue shoots out taking one of the babies. The culprit was a giant frog called Beelzebufo. It eats one of the female babies. The brother runs for its life but is eaten by another Beelzebufo. Then a herd of Rapetosaurus arrives, crushing one of the frogs and killing it, while the other hops away. The Raptor gets a free "taxi ride" and sees its world, including the crushed Beelzebufo and the Majungasaurus eating its kill.


A pair of Shunosaurus.

The episode cuts to 160 million years ago in China. A young male Shunosaurus is the youngest in the herd. He sees red and white mushrooms and a curious Shroomo eats two of them. He does not realize he has eaten the wrong kind of mushrooms and hallucinates in the process. It gets even worse when the herd and Shroomo’s mother abandons him to a pair of Sinraptors. He runs from the carnivores but the pair follows. His club gets stuck on a rock hill and the Sinraptors attack him. Suddenly his club breaks free and knocks one Sinraptor off, and Shroomo tumbles down the rocky hillside with the other. When he wakes up he sees the dead Sinraptor that he crushed when falling down the hill, and, satisfied, he walks away. His hallucination has ended. He rejoins the herd and sees the red mushrooms but he knows not to eat them.

The episode cuts to Late Jurassic China, a land of forests, rivers, and crowned dragons called Guanlong. It is hard to imagine they are related to Tyrannosaurus Rex, but they are. The two Guanlongs are always fighting. Meanwhile, a small mammal called Castorocauda chases a flopping fish while the two male and female Guanlongs fight over a lizard. The beaver-like creature is noticed by the two and instead of eating the lizard they chase the mammal. It is small and agile. One of them corners it in a log but the mammal has a secret. It has stingy spray! It defeats one dinosaur, and when the other curious one comes to the log it too gets sprayed. The two areas much pain that they accidentally knock the log and the mammal in the water. However, there is a fish in the log so the mammal eats its prize. As night falls, under the Jurassic moon, another mammal is on the hunt; Volaticotherium. It hunts insects on the wing, and its scent attracts the two Guanlongs. They run on a rock in the water, hoping for the mammal to glide into its mouth but ends up only on the head of one Guanlong. Their calls and fighting wakes up the rock, which is not in fact a rock, but a giant Mamenchisaurus. They were just standing on the back of a giant sauropod. The two Guanlongs are too busy fighting that the small mammal escapes. The dinosaurs run off of the sauropod and onto a real rock while the sauropod walks into the forest while the two run on to a lakebed but start screaming because they find out that there are crocodyloforms.
