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, which was a dominant, primarily reptilian, animal of the later Triassic period, many of which were known for their immense size. Presumably, in the world of Harry Potter, they might well also be related to dragons.
Behind the scenes
- The real-life dinosaur Dracorex Hogwartsia was named after Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (First mentioned)
