Thehowling

When male dinosaurs turn 15, they go through a rite-of-passage known as "The Howling," during which the youngsters join the adults on top of the mountain to howl at the new moon. Robbie doesn't see the point, and rebels. This sets off a chain of events, including the dissolution of Earl and Roy's friendship, which causes Robbie to understand that rituals that get dismissed as superstition are actually designed to protect the tribe. Robbie gains a new appreciation for being a dinosaur.
