My dinosaur recall consists of two things: Jurassic Park and Anne McCaffrey's book series.
In Anne McCaffrey's books, these were really not dinosaurs but dragons. I liked and remember best the special way with which she developed part of the plot around the special relationship between each dragon and his/her human being master/rider.
In this fictional but engaging story, there was a special affinity between dragon and rider which causes the delineation between master and slave to blur. It reminds me of the Tao's way: the question becomes the answer and the answer becomes the question; each one leading the other.
Beyond this, I think it's too much effort to exert further. But anyway, thanks for the question, beverlyannblock!
