Alpha's Egg



Argentina, 80 million years ago. A young Saltasaurus, named Alpha is coming to her nesting site with other females for the first time since she was born to lay her eggs. Meanwhile, in a forest, not too far away, a dead Saltasaurus is being scavenged on by a young male Aucasaurus named Dragonfly and his mate. However, the two are scared away by a pair of giant carniverous Carcharadontosaurus. At the nesting site Alpha begins to lay her eggs. Fifteen years earlier, Alpha has just been layed by her mother and is still an embryo in her egg. All the mothers leave and the centries gaurd the nests. Months later, and Alpha is ready to hatch. A pack of Alvaerzsaurus and Notosuchus attack Alpha's nest and begin to eat the eggs. A Notosuchus punctures Alpha's egg before being scared away by a centry. Alpha then hatches and stumbles into her nest. In a glade not far away, a female Aucasaurus and her mate tend to their three newborn chicks. Two females and one male named Dragonfly, who finds it entertaining to chase bugs around. That night, Alpha and thousands of other babies run into the safety of the forest. Most of the young are killed and eaten by Alvarezsaurus and Notosuchus. The next day, Alpha and the other survivors find safety in a herd of adult Saltasaurus and travel with them for a while. But then, Dragonfly and his family attack and more hatchlings are killed. Dragonfly meets Alpha face to face for the first time but is distracted by a dragonfly and chases it away. Fifteen years later and eight metre long Alpha is constantly stalked by Dragonfly and his family, now not chasing bugs, but dinosaurs. While feeding, a large female Saltasaurus trips on a log and falls down a hill, where Dragonfly and his pack kill her and dig in. Alpha and the rest of the herd move away. On an open plain, a pair of male Saltasaurus fight over Alpha, and the winning male mates with her. Alpha then begins her journey to the nesting site. Dragonfly has now left his family and is in search of a mate. Soon he finds one and they mate. During the journey, a pair of Carcharadontosaurus attack the herd. Alpha avoids death, but another female is killed. Alpha makes it and lays her eggs, but heavy rain comes and the eggs and ther embryos are drowned. Now alone, Alpha is attacked by Dragonfly and his mate. Alpha whips her down with her tail and rams Dragonfly. Dragonfly bites Alpha and she falls, crushing his skull. He is dead. Alpha leaves. Hopefully, she will mate again and to lay more eggs.


These herbivores only real defence is size and some armour on its back. This armour however is not much use. It has a long neck and a tiny head with a brain the size of a small banana. It is 11 metres long and lived in Argentina, 80 million years ago.


These carnivores have short faces and tiny arms. They are not the top predator of their enviroment, tormented by Carcharadontosaurus. They are about 4-5 metres long and lived in Argentina, 80 million years ago. Males are reddish orange, while females are plain grey. Older females may develop spots of yellow.


These are the elite carnivores. A combonation of size, speed and strength. They are larger than a Tyrannosaurus, at 13 metres long. Males are orange, while females are yellowish-grey. They lived in Egypt, Tunisia, Niger, Morocco, Libya and Algeria from 100-80 million years ago.


These are certainly not dinosaurs, but crocodiles that live on land. They lived in Uruguay and Madagascar, 80 million years ago.


These little dinosaurs only have one finger. This shows, unlike most small carnivores it does not rely on hands. It appears to have a craving for eggs, probably feeding on insects, lizards, small flying reptiles and baby dinosaurs. It was about a metre long, covered in feathers and lived in Argentina, 80 million years ago.


Carcharadontosaurus is depicted as living in South America, when it is only known from north Africa.
Notosuchus is shown living in Argentina, when it only lived in Uruguay and Madagascar.
Aucasaurus is shown with claws, something abelisaurids did not have.
