They came across ''Diplodocus'', ''Stegosarus'', and an ''Allosaurs'' – all of which had actually died out by 140 Ma BC. The ''Allosaurus'' was hostile to the time travelers, who only narrowly managed to escape, when Hobbes baited it with the snacks Calvin had packed.

Calvin the Allosaur and'' Allosaurus'' are also minor recurring alter egos of Calvin's.
 
===Calvin the Allosaur===
 
[[File:Allosaurus_Calvin_the_Awful_Allosaur.png|thumb]]Calvin the Allosaur (identified as "Calvin, The Awful Allosaur") is a minor alter ego of Calvin's. It appeared in a single Sunday strip. In it, Calvin somehow transformed into an ''Allosaurus'' in his room and went outside to enter a Jurassic environment. There, it hunted a passing ''Diplodocus'' by means of ambush, as an analogy to Calvin scaring his mother by hiding in a closet and, upon her opening it, jumping out while making a hideous grimace.
 
===Ultrasauros attack===
 
[[File:Allosaurus_Ultrasaurus.png|thumb|left]]''Allosaurus'' appeared once more as a minor alter ego of Calvin's in a Sunday strip. In it, a ''Supersaurus'' (identified as an ultrasaur, in reference to ''[[Ultrasauros]]'') took in a drink at a waterhole; the ''Allosaurus'', also thirsty, tried to confront it for access to the water. However, as it approached its competitor, the Allosaurus realized it had no chance of bringing down the ''Supersaurus''. Allosaurus was here analogous to Calvin waiting in line at a school water fountain to avoid being hit by Moe.
 
===Brontosaurus attack===
 
[[File:Allosaurus_Brontosaurus.png|thumb]]Allosaurus made one more appearance in a Sunday strip as a minor alter ego of Calvin's. In it, the ''Allosaurus'' ambushed a herd of ''Apatosaurus'' (identified as ''Brontosaurus'') and jumped on a straggling member of the group. The Allosaurus was conscious of the danger of attacking such a large animal, but did so anyway due to desperation in hunger. Allosaurus was here analogous to Calvin jumping on his father while he was cooking, exclaiming that he was hungry.
