For the month of December we have a new character showcase, but with some very familiar characters.  Please warmly welcome the gang as the antagonists might see them! :bestsharptooth The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the next season of the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

What does Chomper and his parents eat on the land if there are the only dinos on the island? :blink:

I suspect there's other dinosaurs on the island. Chomper's parents weren't at all surprised Chomper claimed to eat longneck for breakfast. From what I recall, Chomper only said that his folks were the only big sharpteeth around there (which he was proven wrong by the presence of another sharptooth), not that he and his folks were the only dinosaurs.

We may have only seen a part of the island, maybe the part of the land near one side of it, there could have been more that we have not seen.

Realistically I don't suppose Chomper and his parents could have survived on that island for long (and they may not have meant to do that at all with the earthquake cutting their way from the island). I would suspect them to be more of a nomadic species (following the food) than a settled one.

Some may follow herds of farwalkers, or were nomad themselves and didn't follow any 1 specific herd.

I'd always imagined that sharpteeth would have some sort of set territory, but the movies don't really support this theory considering how many sharpteeth wonder to the Great Valley and the fact that Chomper's parents were quite a ways from the Great Valley in the fifth movie. (Or at least, they might be. Haven't seen that movie.)

If they did have a set territory I imagine it would probably be pretty large.

I don't think there were any animals big enough for them to eat back in those times. They all probably would have been about the size of Tickles.

They've shown some mammals but they are all small, maybe around Ducky's size or a bit smaller.

Well, perhaps Chomper's parents were using island's leaf-rich appearance to lure migrating herbivorous on it. I mean, they were just waiting for another meal to come. :)
