      • Koolasuchus is a relative of modern day salamanders, and the interpretation shown bears a resemblence to the modern day Japanese Giant Salamander. As indicated, it's success in the southern supercontinent is due to the fact that its habitat was too cold for crocodilians.

      • The "Steropodon" in this episode, is in reality a ring-tailed coati.

      • Evidence for an allosaur in the southern hemisphere comes from a find in Australia consisting of a single ankle bone. The find is somewhat controversial, but it bears enough similarity to Allosaurus to be described as a later relative.

      • Featured creatures: Dwarf Allosaur, Koolasuchus (ancient salamander), Leaellynsaura, Muttaburrasaurus, tuatara, steropodon (Cretaceous mammal), weta
