Top 6 “Dinosaur Train” Characters In Real Life

This show is set in a whimsical prehistoric world of jungles, swamps, active volcanoes and oceans with teeming dinosaur. How cool is that? With that being said, let us jump into this list of Dinosaur Train characters in real life.


Allie is an Alamosaurus in her teenage years who still lives with her parents. AnAlamosaurus is a large dinosaur that lived approximately 65 to 73 million years ago. An interesting fact about the name of Alamosaurus isn’t named after the Alamo in Texas, although large numbers of this dinosaur have been found in that state. Instead, it was named after the Ojo Alamo sandstone formation in New Mexico.

Laura is a giganotosaurus from Argentina, with a gentle heart and a lot of strength. Giganotosaurus is Greek for “giant southern lizard,” not “gigantic lizard,” as it’s often mistranslated, and mispronounced by people unfamiliar with classical roots, as “giganotosaurus”. Part of what has made Giganotosaurus so famous, so quickly, is the fact that it slightly outweighed Tyrannosaurus Rex: full-grown adults may have tipped the scales at about 10 tons, compared to a little over nine tons for a female T. Rex.

The bad guy of the series, Keenan. He is a Chirostenotes who likes messing around with the other dinosaurs. The name Chirostenotes is a combination of two words. Although, the name Chirostenotes translates to ‘narrow hands’. The most prominent features of the Chirostenotes were its slender appendages. Its built was slender too; its length was about 7 feet yet it weighed only about 25 to 30 kilos. Its feeding habits have not been properly defined yet, but researchers postulate that it was either an herbivore or an omnivore.

She is one of Buddy’s little siblings who loves playing around with shiny stuff, hence her name. Pteranodons were about six feet long from head to toe and weighed about 35 pounds. So this tiny little girl would be much bigger in real life. The pteranodons’ weight was light for the size of the creature, thanks to the fact that the pteranodon’s bones were hollow, much like a bird’s bones. Pteranodons could stand on their feet, each of which had four toes.

He is friends with Buddy’s family, Mr. Conductor. He rides the dinosaur train, a very smart and friendly dinosaur that loves explaining facts. Just like Mr. Conductor, a Troodon is a very intelligent species. Scientists estimate its intelligence by the size of its brain compared to its body. On that scale, Troodon was about as smart as an ostrich today. The Troodon is also special because of its teeth. It had several different shapes of teeth, which probably allowed it to eat different types of food. Little mammals and lizards were likely among its favorite dinners. But its long claws suggest it may have killed large prey.

6. T REX

The main character of the show. Buddy is an orange tyrannosaurus that likes giving good advice. One feature of the Tyrannosaurus rex that everyone makes fun of is its arms, something that we can see in Buddy, which seem disproportionately tiny compared to the rest of its massive body. T. rex’s arms were over three feet long. In any event, the T. rex didn’t have the smallest arm-to-body ratio among carnivorous dinosaurs; that was the carnotaurus whose arms looked like tiny nubs.
