    They shouldn’t be using the present tense in reference to the huia. As a result of anthropogenic threats, such as habitat destruction, hunting, and introduced species, the huia became extinct in 1907.

    The vast size given to the inflatable Liopleurodon in this strip appears to be based on BBC’s program Walking With Dinosaurs. In said program, Liopleurodon is stated to have been 82 feet (25 meters) long and 165¼ tons (150 metric tons) in mass. No marine reptile of this size has been confirmed by science. Sources of information about animals, regarding their sizes, speeds, lifespans, etc., are often exaggerated. It’s possible that the writers feel that this is necessary to make the animals seem more impressive, and to attract more readers. Exaggerating shouldn’t have to be necessary for anyone and anything.

    I’m surprised that this strip doesn’t feature an inflatable one of any of these Mesozoic marine reptiles:

    1. Archelon (a giant sea turtle): 13 feet long; 13 feet wide across the front flippers; carapace 8 feet wide.

    2. Elasmosaurus: 50 feet long including its 23½-foot-long neck and its 2½-foot-long head; flippers 5 feet long.

    3. Ichthyosaurus: 7¾ feet long.

    4. Tylosaurus (a mosasaur; a giant late Cretaceous marine relative of terrestrial monitor lizards): 24½ feet long.

    These are featured in Dinosaurs (©1977), by Peter Zallinger.

    Actually, “Burritotoro” is based on the character Totoro, featured in Hayao Miyazaki’s anime film “My Neighbor Totoro”. In this film, Totoro is a Japanese spirit of the forest.

    This would be more fitting: Triceratops! Ankylosaurus! Edmontosaurus!…

    Also, nowadays, we say B. C. E. (Before the Common Era) and C. E. (Common Era), rather than B. C. and A. D..

    Do you remember the strip from 1989, where they go to the Natural History Museum? When they were standing beside the life-sized replica of Stegosaurus, the dinosaur’s head appeared to be about ¼ of Calvin’s Mom’s height, and Calvin appears to be about ⅓ of his parents’ height. According to The Complete Dinosaur (©1997), by James O. Farlow and M. K. Brett-Surman (editors), the skull of Stegosaurus was about 17¼ inches long, which would make Calvin’s parents and most of the other adults throughout the series about 5’ 9", and Calvin and most of the other children about 23" tall.

    The creatures in this strip are the dinosaurs Albertosaurus (Calvin), Troödon, Corythosaurus, and Centrosaurus, as well as the pterosaur Pteranodon (the rest of the class). Calvin is visualizing Alberta, Canada at around 75 million B. C. E..

    According to Animal: The Definitive Visual Guide (2022 edition; it was originally published in 2001) by David Burnie and Don E. Wilson (editors-in-chief), not all insects are true “bugs”. An example of a true bug eating another true bug would be a wheel bug eating an aphid.
