Saltasaurus was activated in the Amazon Rain Forest during a storm. It chased a lizard, thinking it to be one of its own kind. It faced off against Spiny, and was nearly beaten by Tail Smash, but quickly defeated him, as Spiny was exhausted from hunger. It then proceed to once again chase after the lizard, eventually corning Max at a waterfall. However, Chomp arrived just in time, allowing Max to defeat it with Electric Charge and claim his card.

Another one is briefly seen in Carnival of Chaos. Due to being unfed, its control device malfunctioned and it got loose like the rest of the dinosaurs, but was returned to its card by the actions of chibi Chomp knocking the device off.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

The D-Teams' parents later released one on the Space Pirates' ship along with several other dinosaurs to distract the Gel Jarks so that they could escape.


  • Dr. Taylor claims that Saltasaurus chased the lizard because its name meant "lizard from Salta", meaning that it was a lizard, too. Although that is what its Latin name is derived from, any real paleontologist would know that dinosaurs and lizards were in actuallity hardly related except for both being reptiles.
  • In the Japanese official website, Saltasaurus's roar is used as Camarasaurus's sound in the painting game in Kyoryu King.
  • Saltasaurus has the same English dub roar as many other sauropods: Amargasaurus, Seismosaurus, and Shunosaurus.
