In Defense of Red Claw

Hmm yea that's also possible. This still leaves the question why Redclaw would be more reputable to an arguably better sharptooth. We also don't have any time frame of when Redclaw gained his notoriety, whether it could have been before or after Plate's death. Another possible reason is the fact that he teams up with fast-biters to hunt his prey. The first movie showed that more peaceful leaf-eating dinosaurs even had trouble working with other species. Such an unorthodox method in the Mysterious Beyond probably catches other dinosaurs off guard and certainly would stick out in someone's mind.

Come to think about it. A conversation between Chomper and Redclaw would be kinda cool. I liked the conversation Chomper had with Thud in the TV series. It could show some parallels between Chomper and Redclaw. Both are doing similar things, with Chomper befriending leaf-eaters and Redclaw teaming up with other sharpteeth species.

If a second season is planned (which I feel like it may be a possibility) then an episode featuring Red Claw with Chomper in a conversation would be a really good idea for an episode.

I'm a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. I'm currently working on a modern analysis of the deleted scenes in The Land Before Time, as new discoveries have been made in the last few years.
I love sharpteeth, especially the Horned Sharptooth, the Plated Sharptooth/Plates and the original Sharptooth.
I'm an admin on The Land Before Time Wiki, particularly the "Sharptooth admin" I suppose you could say.

From what I have seen of Red Claw, he is by far more handicapped than other Sharpteeth. Hence why He has Screech and Thus compensate for his maladies (eye and claw). Red Claw actually shows great hunting acumen in that He has enlisted the help of two Sharpteeth who are of completely different species.

One point I forgot to make. Chomper is the one who calls Red Claw "the meanest Sharptooth of them all." Chomper wasn't born while Sharptooth was alive and hasn't heard the stories of the Meanest Sharptooth. While he did encounter both Plates and the Horned Sharptooth, Plates is very likely dead and Chomper hadn't encountered the Horned Sharptooth yet during the time of the TV series. Thus, it is very likely that Chomper would call a Sharptooth that continually attacks him and the rest of the gang vicious ("the meanest Sharptooth of them all"), as it is the only surviving Sharptooth that repeatedly attacks the gang that he knew at this point. By the way, this is the same Logo8th who initially wrote the blog post. I made an account on here so that I could join in the discussion on the forum about this topic.

That is well said. Chomper is perhaps the worst member of the Gang to go to for advice on who is the most evil or meanest sharptooth, because he is a sharptooth. Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie, and Spike are herbivores who are food for Sharpteeth, they experience a terror when a Sharptooth emerges that Chomper cannot understand. Besides Chomper never met the Most Evil Sharptooth in TLBT I.
