Dinosaurs ruled the land some 65 million years ago where most of them disappeared with unknown reason.

Some Dinosaurs survived at places like Dinosaur Island and Skartaris, and appeared time and time again to fight hero and villain alike, as real wild life, clones or robots resembling dinosaurs. They're pretty extinct, though. We think.

Early Sinclair family concept sketch

Dinosaurs was a half-hour sitcom which aired on ABC. The series, conceived just before Jim Henson's death, focused on a family of dinosaurs, the Sinclairs, and used ground-breaking full body, animatronic puppets.

The show was a joint venture that merged the talents and resources of Michael Jacobs Productions, The Jim Henson Company and Disney's Touchstone Entertainment. Dinosaurs made use of a system known as animatronics to express and alter the dinosaurs' facial movements, a process developed by Brian Henson and his team at the London Creature Shop.

The show was an effective parody of human life and the American sitcom. Dinosaurs was set in the year 60,000,003 BC. Just a million years earlier, the dinosaurs behaved like animals, eating their offspring and living in swamps. But now they had evolved, raising families, living in houses, working, and paying taxes.

Earl Sinclair, a megalosaurus, works for the WESAYSO Development Corporation, under the direction of triceratops B.P. Richfield, leveling forests to make way for housing developments. Earl's wife Fran, an allosaurus, runs the house and family. The Sinclairs have three children: 14-year-old son Robbie; 12-year-old daughter Charlene; and 1-year-old Baby Sinclair, whose birth is recounted in the pilot.

The series has been released on DVD by Buena Vista Home Entertainment. The first box set, Dinosaurs: The Complete First and Second Seasons, was released in May 2006. The second set, Dinosaurs: The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons, was released in May 2007.



News articles written at the time of the premiere highlighted the show's connection to Jim Henson, who had died the year before. "Jim Henson dreamed up the show's basic concept about three years ago," said a New York Times article in April, 1991. "'He wanted it to be a sitcom with a pretty standard structure, with the biggest differences being that it's a family of dinosaurs and their society has this strange toxic life style,' said Brian Henson. But until The Simpsons took off, said Alex Rockwell, a vice president of the Henson organization, 'people thought it was a crazy idea.'" [1] A 1993 article in The New Yorker said that Henson continued to work on a dinosaur project until the "last months of his life." [2]

Henson was working with designer William Stout in the late 80s on a feature film with animatronic dinosaurs, with the working title of The Natural History Project; Henson contacted Stout about the project again in the last months of his life. That project may have been the inspiration for Dinosaurs.

The television division of the Walt Disney Company had begun working on the series in 1990 for CBS, before the series landed on ABC. [3]


  • Many of the dinosaur characters' names were based on the names of oil companies (Sinclair, Phillips, Hess, Richfield) or the categories of fuels they produced, like Ethyl.
  • B.P. Richfield's first and middle initials were inspired by British Petroleum.
  • Seven episodes of the show were filmed and produced, but did not air in the initial run of the series. They were however included in the syndication package.
  • At one point a Dinosaurs movie was planned, but never produced. [2]

(Redirected to Forerunner Fauna and Flora article)

From Halopedia, the Halo Wiki

(11 votes)
This article (Forerunner Fauna and Flora), has one or more disputed facts. Please visit this article's talk page for more info, and clean this page so it meets wiki standards.

Throughout the Halo Universe, many Forerunner animals, plants and other lifeforms are shown or hinted at. Below are many known Forerunner fauna and flora.


Land Animals

Photos of some Thorn Beasts that didn't make it into the original game.

Halo Dinosaurs are native lifeforms to Halo, possibly exclusive to Installation 04. They are both bipedal and quadruped in stature and somewhat resemble Earth's dinosaurs. [1] The larger animals' names are Thorn Beasts and the smaller one has been identified as a Blind Wolf. [2] The Blind Wolf was also meant to be rideable by the player as well as have the ability to bite as an attack. The Blind wolf has two very large teeth coming out of its mouth and walks on two legs, it may also be seen in large packs in the E3 2000 Halo trailer.

Although they did not make it to the final cut of the game, this does not exclude them from Halo as a whole. For example, Engineers didn't make the final cut for Halo: Combat Evolved either, but they were depicted in the Halo Novels, Halo Wars and most recently in Halo 3: ODST. A pack of Brutes ate a Thorn Beast in Halo: Contact Harvest. It's unknown if these animals are meant to be there, or if they are even canon to the plot of Halo: Contact Harvest, but just unseen.

The main reason they did not make it into the final game was that Bungie wanted the surprise introduction of the Flood to be shocking to the player, who had seen no hint of them before encountering them. It was determined that ultimately the presence of other non-Covenant aliens lessened the impact of the Flood's arrival.

Sea Creatures

Originally there were plans for sea creatures to inhabit the water, as seen in The Silent Cartographer the water is fully explorable in Halo: CE, which would make sense to have sea creatures. In early Halo there was also a spear gun which could be used on the sea creatures and underwater enemies. A few sea creatures have been seen in early videos like sea monsters and fish. The creatures and spear gun did not appear due to balancing problems.


Main Article: Dino-Birds

On the levels Delta Halo, and Regret, there are birds flying around in the sky, usually flying in circles or ovals. They are also in the Halo 3 multiplayer maps Guardian, and Epitaph where they can be examined more closely by using Flycam in Theater or Editor Mode in Forge. At first they seem like dinosaurs, but they are seen in High Charity, so it is also possible that the Covenant brought "food". They are also seen on Installation 05. But then, if they are dinosaurs, the Covenant might have brought specimens to their holy city. It may never be known if they are dinosaurs or wildlife brought by the Covenant to use as hunting game. This could be confirmed by the existence of the supply ship complete with a hunting preserve, the Infinite Succor from the Halo Graphic Novel.

The Dino-birds of Installation 05

Also, since it is known that Halo contains a vast multitude of terrains and environments, much like Earth, it is possible that life has been developing on Halo over the 100,000 years that they have been dormant, such animals as the dino birds. Another reason why animals may not be seen is because they have the calcium store necessary for the Flood to infect, so the animals may have been destroyed by the guardians of the construct, and only avian-like animals ere permitted to survive since it was mentioned that Drones do not have sufficient calcium mass to sustain the Flood.

In Halo 2 and Halo 3 these "birds" can be shot and killed; they are always moving, and therefore difficult to hit. After being shot once by any weapon they give off red blood and fall straight down. There is only one falling animation.

A fun thing to do in Halo 2 while you are on the gondolas on the level Regret, or otherwise waiting for combat, is use a carbine or Beam rifle and try and snipe them. This "hunting" is especially fun when played in co-op, as the two players can compete for the most kills.

It is likely that they were brought over from another place to the Halo Installations because the Forerunners could have used them as food for the Flood in an effort to learn more on Flood reproduction. However, the dino-birds could be difficult to obtain because of their avian nature, or their bodies simply do not contain enough calcium to be of use to the Flood.


Main Article: Moths

These moth-like creatures are only seen in the dark Swamps of Alpha Halo. They are one of the first animals seen in Halo: Combat Evolved. You cannot interact with the moths and they are not seen in Halo 2 or 3.

Sea Worms

Main Article: Sea Worms

The Sea Worms are only seen on the level Silent Cartographer. They float harmlessly on the surface of the water. When exploring the water, the worms can often be seen in the waters edge, floating.


Various animal calls were heard in the level 343 Guilty Spark along with the moths. The most common sounds were the sound of an owl hooting and cricket chirping. It is unlikely that these sounds are indeed owls and crickets, but perhaps an animal that is similar. It also could be possible that they are artificial sounds made by the Forerunners to make the environment seem more life-like.

On the unknown shield world in Halo Wars, there are creatures resembling sea gulls and eagles, quite possibly the dino-birds. There are no land animals reported on that shield world.


Stalk Plants

Stalk Plants can be commonly seen in the multiplayer map Backwash, and seen often in the campaign levels 343 Guilty Spark, Gravemind and High Charity. These plants appear as large, thick stalks, as the name suggests and are often bulbous towards the base, tapering upwards into a thinner trunk, in a similar fashion as an onion grown on Earth. The bulb of the plant has been observed to possess some sort of photoluminescence and emits a neon green glow that repeats in a rhythmic pattern. This same property can be observed on the Human Combat Form in Halo: CE.

Forerunner Trees

Forerunner trees are aesthetically similar to modern trees on Earth. They are found on Forerunner Installations and seem to be quite abundant.[3][4][5] The trees would help keep a balanced ecosystem and make Halo seem more natural. There are many different trees seen on Halo throughout the trilogy.


The majority of the terrain on Installation 04 is grassy with masses of trees. Even in locales where it is snowing there are at least a few trees and patches of grass. This installation has various environments and seasons, and weather may differ on different parts of the ring. All of the plants and trees and other flora seen on Alpha Halo, Delta Halo, and the Ark were obviously easy for the Forerunners to obtain or else they would not exist on the rings. If there really are no fauna on the different Installations, then it is likely that the flora on the other Installations are less advanced from an evolutionary point of view than the flora on other planets. This is because the flora on those Installations would not have to compete with fauna for nutrients, and thus would have less of a reason to evolve.

(Redirected to Debunked theories article)

From Lostpedia

The following are a list of relatively popular but clearly debunked theories, listed along with the sources of the debunking.

Lost has generated a huge number of interesting and diverse theories to explain the mysteries of the show. Some are more plausible than others, but some are clearly (and at times, repeatedly) refuted or discredited by Lost's writers and producers.

The head writers and executive producers have also said repeatedly that they already have an "end game" and larger story arc in mind for how to wrap up the entire series. From the Comic Con transcript: "We have at least, four, probably five awesome seasons planned out… and from that point, obviously after that, we’d have to start tap-dancing. Which is something that we just don’t want to do."



  • Theory: The Others or DHARMA or other characters of the story are actually aliens, or the Island itself is a giant spaceship.
  • The statue may be the remains of an Alien civilization.
  • Debunked by:
  • Source:
    • SciFiWire Interview - 'As the show progresses, [Damon Lindelof] added, it won't venture too far into science fiction as its mysteries unfold. "We're still trying to be... firmly ensconced in the world of science fact," he said in an interview. "I don't think we've shown anything on the show yet that has no rational explanation in the real world that we all function within. We certainly hint at psychic phenomena, happenstance and... things being in a place where they probably shouldn't be. But nothing is flat-out impossible. There are no spaceships. There isn't any time travel."'
  • In-show parody:
    • Sawyer on the Others: "My theory, they're aliens. That's why they use the fake beards -- their heads are made of plastetic". Hurley: "Prosthetic, dude". ("Live Together, Die Alone")
    • Sawyer asking Juliet about his and Kate's forced labor in "The Glass Ballerina": "So, when you pulled us out of thise polar bear cages and put us on the chain gang, what the hell did you have us breaking all those rocks for anyway?" Juliet: "We were building a runway." Sawyer:" Runway? For what?" Juliet: "The Aliens. (smiles) I don't know what for, do you think they told me everything?" ("Through the Looking Glass")
  • How the Producers contradicted themselves:
  • In "Flashes Before Your Eyes" and "The Constant", Desmond has a lucid flashback and Desmond's consciousness did, in fact, time travel (as confirmed by the producers), respectively. In There's No Place Like Home we learn specifically that a) DHARMA was using the Orchid to conduct experiments dealing with manipulating space-time and b) that coming into contact with the "negatively charged exotic matter" when Ben moves the Island via the Orchid wheel causes him to time jump in his entirety to the Tunisian desert 10 months later in "The Shape of Things to Come", reminding us of the DHARMA polar bear skeleton Charlotte finds in "Confirmed Dead".
  • Knowing that time travel has become (and possibly always was) an integral part of the show's mythology, Damon's indication that there was neither spaceships nor time travel in any interview casts major doubt and calls into suspect that there will be no spaceships in Lost. Since those statements were made during Season 1, it can be argued that there had been no spaceships or time travel to our knowledge yet, or that such information would not be revealed until later seasons. Also, it should be noted that nowhere in the SciFi Wire article is there mention of aliens one way or another; the only thing mentioned in the text relating to this section is a single reference to "spaceships." Add to this more recent statement by Lindelof that "Somewhere just outside the Crab Nebula is where it will all end, geographically," evidence of spaceships being involved in Lost actually seems to mounting... ABC News: 'Lost' Fans Will Find Answers


A clone is a new, identical organism grown from a cell; to suggest that a character in Lost is instantly cloned into a duplicate full-grown individual is a contradiction. The rabbits numbered "15" in the Orchid video are not examples of cloning, but of time travel gone awry.


  • Theory: The Monster is a dinosaur.
  • Debunked by:
  • Source:
    • Lost-TV Forums Exclusive Interview - Damon says: "JJ and I have always known what it was and we're VERY discriminating about who we tell, because that's one of the biggest secrets of the show. We know from the beginning it wasn't a dinosaur. If the network ever said anything about it to us it was more on the order of, 'Please tell us it's not a dinosaur.' And we're like, 'Ok, it's NOT a dinosaur!'"
  • In-show parody:
    • Hurley questions Jack about what they just saw, after a Monster encounter: "Was it a dinosaur?" Jack: "It wasn't a dinosaur." Hurley: "You say you didn't see it." Jack: "I didn't." Hurley: "So how do you know it wasn't a dinosaur?" Jack: "Because dinosaurs are extinct." ("Tabula Rasa")
    • Paulo: "It could've been a dinosaur." Nikki: "It's not Jurassic Park, Paulo." ("Exposé")

Dreamworld/All Inside Someone's Head

  • Theory: All the events on the Island are not "real", and merely the dream/imagination/hallucination of one of the characters (most commonly named as Walt or Hurley). According to this, that character will wake up by the end of the show, and the audience will realize that none of the events actually happened.
  • Debunked by:
  • Source:
    • SciFiWire Interview
    • Lost-TV Forum Interview
    • UGO Interview
    • Mysteries, Conspiracies and Theories (Season 2 DVD featurette) - Carlton says: "What we have said and will continue to say is that we will not end the show with a cheat. It will not all have taken place in a snowglobe, it will not all have been a dream."
  • Special Note:
    • Though the writers have said that the entire story is not all in the mind of one character, they have not denied that dreams and hallucinations are of significance, simply that not all the events will be fabricated in someone's mind (a la ending for St. Elsewhere, the snowglobe reference that Carlton makes above).
    • This is once again emphasized in the March 10, 2008 podcast, when Damon Lindelof (in a response to a question about possible interpretations of the ending of Via Domus) says: "We're not interested in 'All a dream' storytelling," instantly followed by a reaffirmation that individual scenes could always turn out to be dreams, but there would never be an ending when a character wakes up and everything had just happened inside a "snowglobe".
    • In an interview with UGO in the middle of Season 4's production, Damon finished the interview by stating "The one thing that Carlton and I are steadfast on saying over and over again, and that we're not lying about is that the show is not all a dream. It's happening in the real world, there are real stakes, you're not going to get to the end and cut to black and suddenly realize that this was all sort of a fantasy. That's the only thing that we sort of need to get out there in the world, because it does diffuse a lot of wacky theories."
  • In-show parody:
    • Dave to Hurley: "It's hard, I know, but I mean -- all this? You, me, this island, that peanut butter -- none of it's real, man. None of it's happening. It's all in your head, my friend. The second you closed that window your brain popped a gasket. You went back into your little coma thing. That's where you are right this very second. In your own private Idaho, inside Santa Rosa". ("Dave")


The Mapinguari as an explanation for the Monster first appeared on the ABC website, but is not valid or canonical since the site was created by ABC's marketing department rather than Lost's creative authorities.


  • In-TLE parody:
  • Callers to DJ Dan's show (known "conspiracy nuts") mentioned black clouds made of nanobots as a nod to the popular refuted theory, but by the end of The Lost Experience, DJ Dan himself says that "I sure as hell don’t think you’re going to be seeing it on your television screens anytime around September of this year."


  • In-show/TLE parody:

Reality TV

  • Theory: The castaways are actually unwitting participants in a reality television show run by DHARMA, and He is monitoring them all through the video surveillance system.
  • Debunked by:
  • Source:
    • Sydney Morning Herald Article

Turbine Explosion (Monster Caused the Plane to Crash)


Nikki and Paulo replaced Rose and Bernard in an alternate timeline

  • The gist of this theory: In "Flashes Before Your Eyes", we learned that Desmond went back in time. The theory claims that his actions in the past somehow created an alternate timeline where Rose and Bernard were never on the plane, and had instead been replaced by Nikki and Paulo. This is why Rose and Bernard haven't been seen again after the end of season 2, despite having gotten their own flashback episode ("S.O.S."), whereas Nikki and Paulo suddenly appeared out of the blue. ("Further Instructions")
  • Several promotional stills for "Exposé" show Nikki and Paulo in a recreation of the scene from the end of "Live Together, Die Alone" with the Hatch door that came falling out of the sky, with Bernard not being seen anywhere near Claire despite having been with her in that very scene in "Live Together, Die Alone". That scene was missing from the actual episode that aired on TV, however.
  • This theory is further fueled by Sawyer's repeated comments towards Nikki and Paulo ("Who the hell are you?", "Who the hell is Nikki?"). ("Enter 77") ("Exposé")
    • The theory suggests that Sawyer was at the Pala Ferry docks when Desmond turned the fail-safe key ("Live Together, Die Alone"), and thus wasn't affected by the timeline change and couldn't remember Nikki and Paulo as they were not part of the original timeline.
      • A counter-argument to this would be that Hurley was with Sawyer when "the sky turned purple", and thus would have to be equally unaffected by whatever Sawyer would have been exempt from. Yet Hurley seems to have a very clear memory of Nikki and Paulo. ("Exposé").
      • Another counter-argument to the overall theory would be the fact that Rose and Bernard have made various contributions to the progress of the story that would require some major "universe course correction" in order to undo the consequences of them not being around in a parallel timeline. Bernard being stuck in a tree and calling for help ultimately resulted in Ana Lucia realizing that Goodwin hadn't been wet when he came running out of the jungle in "The Other 48 Days"; and Bernard also was the one picking up Boone's transmission from the Beechcraft, thereby unknowingly causing Boone's fall in "Deus Ex Machina", which led to his death one episode later. Rose, meanwhile, helped Charlie overcome his feeling of guilt following Claire's kidnapping in "All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues"; and she also prevented Hurley from blowing up the Swan's pantry in "Everybody Hates Hugo", thereby allowing Eko to use the remaining dynamite in "Live Together, Die Alone".
      • In the March 30, 2007 podcast, Carlton Cuse, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz address the whereabouts of Rose and Bernard, explaining that they would only use them if they have "something to do"; after all, Sam Anderson and L. Scott Caldwell most certainly have other assignments and can't be expected to make a trip to Hawaii just for one day of shooting of a scene where they're standing around in the background.
    • The scene depicting the immediate aftermath of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815 in "Exposé", partially recycling shots from "Pilot, Part 1", shows a brief glimpse of Boone giving Rose CPR, and later shows him asking Nikki for a pen, which he did in "Pilot, Part 1" after Jack took over Rose's reanimation attempts and sent him off to go looking for a pen to perform a tracheotomy.
      • Supporters of the theory have alternatively suggested the inclusion of the shots depicting Rose may have been "production errors", or that Rose's reanimation may have not been successful in this timeline.
    • In "Catch-22", Sawyer gives Kate a Phil Collins tape which he claims belongs to Bernard, thereby confirming Bernard being alive and well on the Island.
    • Script coordinator Gregg Nations officially debunked this theory once and for all.
    • The final nail in the coffin of this theory was the return of both Rose and Bernard, alive and well on the Island, in "Greatest Hits".
    • And as a postscript note, the scene featuring the Swan door falling down originally intended for "Exposé" is included as a Deleted Scene on the Lost: The Complete Third Season DVD box set, and Bernard is seen in footage recycled from "Live Together, Die Alone". (It's possible that Sam Anderson was simply not available for shooting new footage for "Exposé", and since the official promo stills usually don't include recycled footage, he was not seen in them.)

Last Humans

Theory: States that the Island is not on the planet earth. The survivors of Oceanic 815 were the last humans on earth and then placed on the Island. Since there was never a plane crash, the flashbacks we see are implanted memories.

Debunked by: Season 4 and Season 5 show an outside world in existence, off the Island.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

The name or term Dinosaur refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Dinosaur (disambiguation).
There's a party in my mouth, and only really depressing people are invited..

Dinosaurs are prehistoric reptiles that in the past dominated the Earth. Scientific consensus holds that they became extinct 65 million years ago. In the various Transformers continuities, this belief is often reassessed.

Dinosaurs' most prominent influence in Transformers culture is serving as the altmodes for some of the most dangerous (and occasionally ludicrous) Transformers of all time.



The Transformers cartoon

The Land Before Time XXIII: The Great Robot Adventure

Dinosaurs were understood to have been sluggish and stupid. They dragged their tails on the ground, and T.rex walked fully upright. S.O.S. Dinobots

Dinosaurs survived the mass extinction of 65 million years ago and lived on into the present on the time-displaced, and energy-rich, Dinobot Island.

The most prominent saurians were the Dinobots, five rebellious (yet extremely powerful) Autobots, who proved time and again a match for an army of Decepticons. Other dinosaur Transformers are Trypticon, Sky Lynx, and the cassette warriors, Slugfest and Overkill.

Transformers who have Dinosaur altmodes have something known as "dinosaur electrons" within their systems. Transformation causes these electrons to release dinosaur transform static. Thief in the Night

Marvel Generation One comics

Dinosaurs survived in a part of the Antarctic known as the Savage Land.

Victory cartoon

The Dinoforce consisted of six Decepticons with sentient dinosaur Pretender shells and the ability to combine into Dinoking.

Beast Wars cartoon

I'm an unusually small t-rex, yesss.

Beast Wars featured two prominent dinosaur transformers, Dinobot (who was either a giant Velociraptor or a small Utahraptor or a regular Deinonychus), and Megatron, whose original and Transmetal altmodes were that of a small Tyrannosaurus. Later, Megatron used the Transmetal Driver to create a drone army of Velociraptors with Cybertronian enhancements. Cutting Edge

Terrorsaur transformed into a Pteranodon, an extinct (non-dinosaur) reptile.

Dinosaurs were now understood to have been quick and agile, with T.rex holding its body parallel to the ground. Grimlock and Snarl are dinosaurs (a T.rex and a Triceratops), while Swoop is a Pteranodon. They form the Dinobots, based on animatronic robots that had entertained the public. Blast from the Past
