Yep. Not only were they in seperate periods but there was no way that Spinosaurus could have survived that bite to its neck. No way.

There were probably more than one Spino. They have to breed.


But then again, The accident wasn't long ago....

Hey, you guys remebr when you first saw JP1 and saw the T-Rex for the first time? I think I pissed Myself!

It wasn't acid, but toxic venom. Also, as has been said before, the spitting venom angle and frilly membrane were inventions for the movie, and there's not really any evidence that it had either in real life (not to mention that the thing was much bigger IRL).

The reason the flame thrower angle makes sense to me for the Parasaurolophus over venom or acid for a defense measure is because acid would probably pose a danger of injuring the Parasaurolophus itself, and as with the venom angle it probably would not have needed a long crest to house the components necessary for them. The reason the flame thrower makes sense is because the compartments inside the crest could have easily stored combustible chemicals, and if they were combined near the front of the creature's mouth while exhaling it would be able to spit flames without the combustion happening inside of its mouth, meaning it would be safe from accidentally burning itself.

ah, oh well then.


Man, I hope they figure out a way to clone dinos in our lifetime. I hope it's a long neck dino. I'd pay every cent I have to see such a creature.

Alls I know about Jurassic Park, is when the raptors got a hold of that hunter dude, they were all "Nom nom nom."

Aside though, ankylosaurus was my fave.

There is a bird today that has a very similar Sickle-claw of a raptor known as the Seriema bird. I'd check it out:

I was scared of the T. Rex but the only scene where I had to cover my eyes was when Nedry was killed.

I loved that scene.

JP2 was great as well. Seeing a T-Rex roaming around the city was....perfect.

Parasaurolophus's crest was most likely a resonating chamber, to allow it to warn others of its kind of danger. I'd imagine that they'd probably behave like meerkats in this regard.

I'd expect a smaller prey animal to have adaptions such as venom, acid or even combustible chemicals for defense, but an animal like Parasaurolophus would probably rely on its size and numbers for defense. Hell, they could've had an intricate coloration on their skin and remained close together to confuse predators, like the way zebra do today.

I'm just impressed that it looks so real, considering it was made in 1992/93. Sometimes modern FX arent that great.


Is it just me or do the Rex's eyes not look as realistic as they could when it first appears?

It just doesn't look real overall.

Yay! Dinosaur thread!

I've LOVED dinos my whole life, and they lead to my love of Godzilla and The Lizard as well.

On a related note:

Remote-Controlled Dinosaur Stolen From Exhibit


A remote-controlled dinosaur robot worth about $100,000 has been stolen from Australia's Walking with Dinosaurs show in Mexico, event organisers said.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...08/2765376.htm
I wish the article would have told what genus the dinosaur robot was.
Since it's only 1.5 meters tall, it's probably something like Oviraptor or Hypsilophodon.

The science behind the resonance chamber theory is very sound, and I've seen demonstrations that show it could work, but still... A biological flame thrower would be way cooler.

Cooler, but not feasible considering what we know about the dinosaur.


Also, to answer RachelDawes' question as to what it is about dinosaurs that makes kids like them, I feel that it has a lot to do with the fact that they were monsters that actually existed in the real world, plus it's usually a child's first foray into a more grown-up field of ideas, possibly even one that their parents aren't familiar with. I know personally growing up that while my dad taught me about the dinosaurs and pronounce their names, my mom (who was home with me all day while dad was at work) didn't know most of what I told her. It was appealing to be able to tutor my mother about the different dinosaurs and what they ate and where they lived. To a five year old, that's pretty damn awesome.

Anyone know of any good and informative books on dinosaurs? I don't mean kid's books, but scientific based, up to date thought, and informative thought and examination of the creatures.
