So I got these awesome plastic dinosaurs for a dollar and I'd really like to make them into charms, but I'm not entirely sure how to get the hole in them.

I tried doing a search but there doesn't seem to be any info or I'm wording it wonky or something. I feel so stupid for asking this. I'm assuming I need a drill? Or am I missing something totally obvious.

I'd drill or heat a needle & pierce them.

They are pretty ... dense, do you think heat and a big needle would work?

Do you have a picture of them?  A drill would probably be easier, if they are thick.

I would definitely try heating a needle and quickly but smoothly jab one of those guys. The picture of those looks kind of like a rubbery plastic, if it is I've never tried that but any hard plastic will let you do the needle trick. In the world of crafts EVERYTHING is worth a try.

I would agree with the heat and needle..just light the tip of the needle with a flame and find a relatively thick part of the dinosaur and stab..poor guy Embarrassed just let him know that he'll look pretty when you are done..pain is a part of beauty..hehe..
