Big Al

Big Al is the nickname given to an Allosaurus that starred as the main character in The Ballad of Big Al. This special, unlike all the others, was actually based on fact - Big Al is a real skeleton . It had so many injuries at different points of healing that experts were able to piece together his life story, starting from an egg, and ending when he was 6 1/2 years old. In the end, it was the drought, a foot injury, and lack of food that killed him.
