Saltasaurus is a genus of titanosaurid sauropod dinosaur that lived 80-66 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous period in the Mesozoic era. Alpha, who is a Saltasaurus, was the central character of Dinosaur Planet's fourth and final episode, Alpha's Egg.

"Alpha's Egg"[edit | edit source]

Saltasaurus is the main subject of the episode. The scene with the eggs drowning is a reenactment of what may have happened to the fossilized nests discovered in the Auca Mahuevo dig-site.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Saltasaurus is the first sauropod discovered to be armored.
  • They are re-used Titanosaur models from Pod's Travels but with different color schemes. They could also be Neuquensaurus.
