"Each comic uses the same artwork, with only the dialogue changing from day to day... The strips take on topics including ethical relativism, the nature of happiness, the secret to being loved, and so forth."
-- http://en.wikipedia.org/

"The cast includes:

* T-Rex, the star, if only because he appears on all panels.
* Utahraptor, T-Rex's foil, who appears in the second half of the comic.
* Dromiceiomimus, who appears in only one panel.

Each character is named after his (or, in the case of Dromiceiomimus, her) genus. Apparently there are not too many dinosaurs in their world: things do not seem to get that confusing. Although other dinosaurs have been mentioned in the strip, they have never been shown.

There are also the supporting characters who never say much. In fact, they are almost part of the scenery of the strip. They are:

* the tiny house (presumably occupied)
* the tiny car (possibly occupied)
* the tiny woman

-all of which are seemingly stomped on by T-Rex.

...While the humor used is often random and surreal, the discussions that Utahraptor and T-Rex have are often of a sophisticated level and manner."
