Max Taylor is the son of paleontologist Dr. Spike Taylor. After falling out of bed early in the morning and seeing a meteor falling in the sky, Max sets out into a forest where it crashes with his friends Rex Owen and Zoe Drake. They find a lightning, wind and grass stone. Chomp is accidentally activated when Max rubs the card on the stone. The D-Team meet their new enemies in the Alpha Gang when they come to catch it. The result was that the D-Team and Alpha Gang often clashed for possession of dinosaurs that are activated. In the finale, the Alpha Gang's Seth turns on his comrades with his Black Tyrannosaurus, which is ultimately defeated thanks to Rex's true parents.
