Crassigyrinus in The Land Before Time

It appears in the first movie, incorrectly portrayed with a sail on its back. It appears in the very first frame, where it swims for a while before being pursued by a Metriorhynchus, but escapes. Since it has a sail, it may actually be a Platyhisthrix (Synapsid-like amphibian) that fell into the water. It also resembled a small aquatic Longisquama.
