Their bones preserved for eons and eons.

/nerd mode/ just under half of the twenty names used are invalid dinosaur names(either the name is incorrectly formed, a junior synonym, a nomen dubium, a nomen nudum, or a non-dinosaur) not bad going!/nerd mode off/

No worries ;) There were mistakes in all of the songs I think (like yesterdays Mesozoic trilobites!). I knew there were names in this song that I had never heard before. They probably just used them because they could make them rhyme or sounded cool to them(?)
Thanks for reading :)
