cannot. remember. movie!

Okay everyone, I need some help here. I'm trying to figure out the name of a movie I saw when I was just a wee lass. It could have been anytime between 1981 and 1985. The movie plot was based around a team of scientists(?) or some folks who journeyed into a rainforest of some kind and found a baby prehistoric animal (may have been a dinosaur) living in a lake. This was a live-action piece, and I remember that the dinosaur looked so lifelike to me, and also really, really cute.

I thought the film was titled Baby... until I checked IMDB. No dice. So now this is really bothering me! A movie with such a life-like pre-Jurassic Park dinosaur doesn't just vanish into thin air! Please help, I'm begging you!

UPDATE:
B000065V3T.01.MZZZZZZZ.jpgFound it! Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend, from 1985. "Paleontologist and her husband discover a mother and baby brontosaurus in Africa, try to protect them from hunters who want to capture them."

Hee hee - it's even available on DVD! I am totally Netflixing this! (Now, if only they'd hurry up and get The Golden Seal on DVD already!!
