You have too many enablers and fewer cards - deathgorge scavengers as 4-of is too many, it will starve most of the time; 4 migration, 4 drover and 3 otepec are too many mana cards - cut the 3 otepec, as they are unnecessary with 4 regisaur.

+1 from me! If you were going for a gimmick deck then dinosaurs is a pretty awesome option! I wanted to build pirates; but honestly dinosaurs got so much more support wowww
Honestly, if your ultimate gameplan is to "cast commander, beat face" then many of the other dinosaurs are just going to slow you down. Gishath, Sun's Avatar is arguably better for a dedicated dino deck imo
I feel like the dream play is Zacama, Primal Calamity immediately into Akroma's Memorial/Xenagos, God of Revels and swing... or just wiping everyone of problematic enchantments/artifacts/creatures lmao
It might be smart to run 30+ creatures because how often are you really casting a 9CMC commander?! Depends on where you take the deck. Do you want beaters or rampers? Wood Elves, Solemn Simulacrum, Kor Cartographer, Oracle of Mul Daya, etc etc. I assume you don't want it to feel exactly like Darigaaz Reincarnated/Maelstrom Wanderer which is why I suggested Otepec Huntmaster&friends. Just Brainstorming
You have a bunch of mana doublers which is awesome, including the updated Regal Behemoth that's a mf dinosaur! Plus sorcery ramp. There's a decent spot removal package and some of the auto include boardwipes. A couple dinos have removal tacked on as well. Spellbreaker Behemoth is sweet. I love Samut and the haste enablers. Fervor is meh. You have a lot of really cool stuff here tho. You even snuck in Craterhoof & Avenger. There's a light token theme here which doesn't fit. Idk.
If you're trying to thin some of the fat it would be the rando 5-8 cmc spells. Crested Herdcaller, Thundering Spineback, Raging Swordtooth, Godsire, ... It's so hard. Probably lose two enchantments and two instants/sorceries and you'll only have to cut seven creatures XD
The crossroads for me is the Gishath dino aggro or Zacama goodstuff combo. It'll be cool to ultimately see what your mind imagines!

Something to consider.

What do you think of Drover of the Mighty or Thunderherd Migration? Pros are that you have a body who can be a 3/3 easily, cons are it can easily be removed. Pros for the sorcery is its an easy ramp which happens on t2 like when you want to play the creature anyway, cons is it is a sorcery which requires a dinosaur to be good (isnt too hard but still sorcery speed feels bad when its kind of meant to be a creature heavy midrange deck?)
Testing out 1 copy of Raging Swordtooth as a sort of small board controller and being a 5/5, where i have tested Territorial Allosaurus as well, but i dont get to use its kicker as much as i had liked, but also liked the 5/5 body. THe swordtooth clears the board of tokens which is what the deck wants to do - clear the board. Maybe the singleton mainboard is good?

I play a similar dino deck, 20 lands is enough given all the mana tools you have. Regisaur Alpha would give all your creatures haste, and if you want to trigger enrage ability you can go for Raging Swordtooth.
I agree, you should consider adding something against flying creatures. Plummet in sideboard maybe ?
Check http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/08-09-18-angry-dinos/, I also run Samut, the Tested.

I really like the deck. Dinosaurs are by far my top fave tribe. Zacama was someone I thought about making my commander, but I just never did.
Ask for spells; some good enrage enablers are Pyrohemia, Raging Regisaur, and Raging Swordtooth. Some other spells would be Desert Sandstorm, Fiery Confluence, Hurly-Burly, Rain of Embers, Rain of Blades, Shake the Foundations, Seismic Shudder, Volcanic Spray, or Tremor.
If you want to have a lot of fun with enrage, give your creatures indestructable and go to town. Vivien Reid, Dauntless Escort, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon's Phalanx, Make a Stand, Rootborn Defenses, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Boros Charm, Heroic Intervention, and Soul of New Phyrexia.
I personally have a Gishath deck: Ixalan Park (#1 Gishath Commander) V.2.0
I didn't go the full blown enrage mode, but I might give that a try. Hope my suggestions helped.

I'm always down for stomping with Dinosaurs and this seems like a fine deck but I would make some changes to it.
1) Get rid of your white. I understand what you're trying to do with it but all dinos want to do is smack the face and the white side of your cards isn't really doing that. Sure you can return a dino from your graveyard with Atzocan Seer but I don't find it useful. Only having two colors will also fix your mana a whole lot better.
2) Add Raging Swordtooth, this card will do WONDERS for your deck! You have so many Enrage triggers on your cards that you want something that will help you trigger it.
3) ADD MORE ENRAGE MECHANICS! I find them to be so strong and there are some powerful ones that will help you control the board so you can keep smashing face Rampaging Ferocidon and Needletooth Raptor will not only help deal with those pesky blockers but will make it so your opponent can't gain life.
4) Your enchantments and instants are okay... but having cards such as Commune with Dinosaurs and Crash the Ramparts are much better for the deck. If anything, throw the Vanquisher's Banner and New Horizons to the sideboards to deal with the slower matchups you may have!
Anyways good luck and have fun with your dinos :)

if you want to pursue the idea of a more dino-based zacama, a few cards you might want to try are Charging Monstrosaur, Bellowing Aegisaur, Cherished Hatchling, Etali, Primal Storm, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Goring Ceratops , Kinjalli's Sunwing, Polyraptor, Raging Swordtooth, Regisaur Alpha, Temple Altisaur, Wakening Sun's Avatar, and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn. I didn't actually check how expensive these are but i assume they're not too hard on the wallet (?)
