Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

  1. Good! A chance to taste what Emily Carmichael can offer, if anything. However this turns out will certainly affect my views on whether JW3 will be any good.

    However, I must ask, if there are Dinosaurs fighting and people present… Can they PLEASE run away and hide? In Jurassic World, the characters literally sat around watching the Indominus rex carve up both the Raptors and a Tyrannosaurus while surrounded by solid buildings they could have easily found safety in. What were they waiting around for, exactly?

      1. Not yet. I need to find out just how in the name of reason is an Allosaur still wandering in a National Park ONE YEAR after the escape of the Dinosaurs in FK… And just how many got away? Pretty sure the Thylacine went extinct faster!

    1. Sorna’s still there, but it is believed the Sorna dinosaurs had already fallen back into extinction by 2018, if not earlier, as a result of an unsustainable ecosystem and the fact that Masrani took several dinosaurs from Sorna to start his theme park. Maybe life will find a way, but that’s all we know now.

    2. well, they made another park on isla nublar, but a breakout caused it to be abandoned. years later, the island’s volcano starting exploding unrealistically quickly, and they had to save the dinos. But then, instead of moving them to a safe island, they were taken to an auction. about half were auctioned off and taken away while the good guys managed to stop the auction. but then some poisonous gas got in the cages to they had to release them into california to save them. so there you go.

  2. I’m just glad it’s not just a straight-up five minute fight. also, i really hope that if big rock national park is a real place, someone noticed by now.
