I do not believe we can definitively answer this question. It refers to an extinct animal used in a movie for a specific plot reason: to resolve the conflict at the climax of the movie. We do not know how Mosasaurus would react in either of its feeding scenarios presented in the movie. However, we can apply logic and see where it takes us. The amphitheater ...

It was hungry, with a large, loud, distract, and injured prey within reach. It has gone at least half a day without being fed. The Indominus Rex is louder by multiple orders of magnitude than the crowd, a single point of sound, and likely in the right hearing range of the Mosasaurus. The Indominus is distracted. Ambush predators take their prey's attention ...

Jurassic Park not Jurassic Zoo because it's meant to be an amusement park. An amusement park has a lot of attractions, rides, merchandise sale etc. like Disney land. Here, instead of clowns and cartoon characters, we have dinosaurs, but we also have a lots of attractions and rides. A lot of these things have been shown in Jurassic Park as well as The Lost ...

Very early in the process, several of the actors had been, at various points, asked to reprise roles. Obviously, by the time the final draft had been accepted, Sir Richard Attenborough had passed away and he wasn't an option. Also, by that time, the story had changed and was scripted to take place 22 years after the original trilogy. A fairly detailed ...

It probably comes from the distinction between 'zoos' and 'Safari parks'. Zoos are typically areas with cages in which animals are 'displayed' and the public walk around looking into the cages. So, outside, looking in. 'Safari parks' generally have differing groups of animals in a more natural habit with some freedom to roam and interact. In safari parks, ...

This was explained in the novel and was planned to be explained in the film, but the scene was cut for time. Here's a summary from /Film Trivia: Why Was the Triceratops Sick in ‘Jurassic Park’? In the film we learn that the Triceratops is getting sick every six weeks or so. Dr. Ellie Sattler first believes the culprit may be the West Indian Lilac berries ...

According to me, there is another possibility here. We can see the electrical fences in the first shot. But there was no electricity when Mosasaurus drags Indominous Rex. Probably, that made easier for Mosasaurus to attack Indominous instead of humans. According to the comment by @snowman, we can only presume the behavior of Mosasaurus based on other ...

I've worked on the implementation of automatic guided forklifts which travel around facilities by following low-frequency signals sent through wires in the floor. The wire needed to be within about an inch of the surface of the floor for reliable guidance; in an outdoor scenario with unpaved roads, an unprotected wire close enough to the surface to offer ...

To figure out the cost of creating a dinosaur, you can extrapolate from real life. Good sir, we live in the future! Bio Arts, is one of a handful of companies that clones people's dogs. They charge a mere $150,000 to clone a dog. However, that process is much simpler than cloning an extinct animal. Any human IVF treatment has about a 34% rate of success, so ...

The following is simply my opinion. I think that the main point here is to show that even if Hammond & C. keep saying that everything is under control, nothing actually is, and the reserchers did not think about all the problems that might arise bringing dinosaurs back on earth in a new (for them) ecosystem.

There is no official statement about this, these are just the logical options: They will probably not hatch since it's to cold outside. They will be buried in the ground and mud ... forever... . The embryos will get found by another dinosaur and get eaten. I doubt it would be warm enough for them to hatch, but it's an option :) The first option is most ...

There are three components to the price. The first component would be creating an artificial egg and implanting an embryo in it. This is the science fiction portion of the process. In the original book, a new material had been developed that could mimic bird eggshell. I'm going to ballpark that each egg needed as much as 2 pounds of that material (would ...
