During this competition, Momma Dino offered the babies an unconscious Archaeopteryx, while Sid offers thembroccoli among other vegetables. They were going to accept the Archaeopteryx, but Sid finds out it's still alive and takes it away. Sid then tells it to fly away - which he forces it to by throwing it off a cliff nearby. Sid realizes that it couldn't fly, before it is snapped up by a passing Pterosaur.
