When Sid's attempt to adopt three dinosaur eggs gets him abducted by their real mother to an underground lost world, his friends attempt to rescue him.
Buck warns the troupe, "Abandon hope, ye who enter there!" This is actually the famous line of Dante Alighieri's Inferno. It's said to be written on the gates of Hell.

In the movie, a relict population of dinosaurs continued breeding for nearly 65,000,000 years after their kindred became extinct. They have been sequestered away, allowing them to evolve to larger sizes as the competition would be more fierce and would need to grow bigger for the need for resources. Also, 65,000,000 years is sufficient to evolve whole new taxonomic families and orders, as mammoths, sloths, cats and humans sprung from humble roots in a fraction of that time. Since the scope of this "what if" scenario can accommodate many speculations, alleged inaccuracies about size, color, posture, diet, etc., become redundant.
Just like the original and sequel Ice Age film, they are no opening credits after the title is shown.
In the original cinema release, the 20th Century Fox logo at the beginning was surrounded by snow covered pine trees, and the searchlights were replaced by small, smouldering volcanoes. However, on the DVD & Blu-ray Disc versions, it has been changed back to the normal version of the logo. Apart from this, the film remains unchanged.
