Will Denison and Sylvia Romano rode an Deinocheirus during the Dinosaur Olympics.


  • The Deinocheirus in the books do not look like real Deinocheirus. At the time the book was written, Deinochierus was known only from its enormous fossil arms, and was believed to be a giant member of the ornithomimid family. In 2014, more complete fossils revealed that Deinocheirus had feathers, a humped back and a duck-like beak, making its portrayal in the Dinotopia series outdated.
