In worlds with dinosaurs, why limit mount possibilities to horses? But don’t just have a copy/paste dinosaur. Give it some personality, qualities, and flaws unique to it.

I love non-magical items and weapons that are more involved, interesting, functional, or useful than a typical item of the same type.
