Come on Littlefoot, cheer up! I had a sister once used to say; "just when things get darkest, that's when you look for the light".

Etta, voiced by Reba McEntire, is a character who appears in The Land Before Time XIV: Journey of the Brave. She is a Pteranodon, or "Flyer", and befriends Littlefoot and his friends during their search for Littlefoot's father, Bron.



Etta first appears after a "sand cloud" forces Littlefoot into a cave, and the mouth of the cave is blocked by sand, and later rocks. To cheer up the downtrodden Longneck, Etta tells Littlefoot to 'look for the light'; look for the positive in a negative situation. After a song number, she and Littlefoot hear sound from above the cave, coming from a skirmish between the rest of the Prehistoric Pals and a hostile Sharptooth. The dinosaurs (and pterosaurs) ride a river and use a waterfall to exit the cave opening, and make their way to the Fire Mountain; the location of Littlefoot's imperiled father, Bron.


Nice to meet ya, "Fiddlefoot"!

    • Chloe has a fairly large crest, though not as big as her cousin Etta, and Desairea has a failry small crest, even for a female Flyer.   Chloe ...
    • Bigger crests attract a mate, then some are born with crests to big and cannot fly. New extinction theory set.
