Like green food and cold times, it may shrink away, but it will always grow back.

Saro is an old friend of Grandpa Longneck, who appears in the episode of the TV series, "The Legend of the Story Speakers". His actual species is unclear - his name, which is either a pun on the "-saurus" suffix or a pun on "sauropod", is too broad to provide any clues to what he may be, though he is most likely a morph of Apatosaurus. He is voiced by Pete Sepenuk. When he was young, Saro was very interested in the Longneck legends, and wanted to learn every one of them.


In the episode, Saro comes to the Great Valley and informs Grandpa Longneck that many Longnecks are forgetting the old stories of the past, and requests that he resume his old job as a story speaker. He gets angry and leaves when Grandpa Longneck tells him his place is in the Great Valley, before he can add that he wants Saro to take up the role himself.

Littlefoot and Chomper then follow Saro into the Mysterious Beyond and inform him of this, but he feels uncertain about telling the stories without Grandpa Longneck there. After a rockslide traps the three of them (due to Saro tapping with foot in anger), he tells them a story to pass the time and give them encouragement until they are rescued. He tells them about Tall Stepper, a young Longneck who's sister was captured by the wind. He beat the wind in a race and saved his sister.

When Grandpa Longneck and the rest of the gang free them, Grandpa Longneck tells Saro that the manner in which he used stories to teach Littlefoot and Chomper about bravery and courage in a time when they needed it proves he is worthy of the job. Saro finally accepts it.


  • Saro is also featured in the book The Land Before Time: Saro Tells a Story, based on the episode of the television series.
  • Saro is likely younger than Grandpa Longneck, but is probably older than Bron.
  • Saro is the only known current Story Speaker.
  • Saro also takes the job of a Story Speaker very serious, calling it a tradition to the Longnecks.
