The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really existed), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
During the 1990–1991 school year, when Jacob's sibling and Barnaby Lee were helping a clerk come up with a Muggle-worthy excuse for a dragon attack in the Muggle world, they thought about explaining the dragon to be a dinosaur, but later dismissed the idea as dinosaurs were extinct.
During the 1994–1995 school year, after hearing Madame Olympe Maxime claim that she had "big bones" rather than admit to being half-giant, Harry Potter remarked that the only thing that had bigger bones would be a dinosaur.
Behind the scenes
- The real-life dinosaur Dracorex hogwartsia (possibly the same animal as Pachycephalosaurus) was named after Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
