    Utahraptor wasn't discovered yet was the problem. :p Deinonychus was a velociraptor species at the time of the film-it was reclassified as its own thing later.

    Deinonychus fits the size of the JP Raptors better though, I think there was a book used by Spielberg as reference which labelled it incorrectly.

    It wasn't labelled "incorrectly"; at the time of the book's publication Deinonychus and Velociraptor Antirhoppus were considered to be the same animal:

    Deinonychus

    I just hope Jack Horner's influence is zero(even though I basically liked JP3).

    I find all the dinosaur name wonkiness going on here to be quite charming. Maybe they could use the Canadian dinosaur Albertosaurus. That's a name to strike fear into the hearts of movie goers everywhere.

    Giganotosaurus or Carcharodontosaurus would be a mouthful for any actor to have to manage, awesome though they might be to see on screen.

    Massospondylus should be in the movie just for name lols

    They'd just shorten it ala "Raptor". Gigan, Chardon or Donto and Masso, etc.

    Bah, everyone knows that there were just six different kinds of dinosaurs: Tyrannosaurus, Brontosaurus, Triceratops, the flying one, Stegosaurus and Raptorsaurus. And when you go back in time, they can all be seen on the same valley.

    Oh dear, one of the scientific facts in my post is wrong. Good thing I made so much research, otherwise it could have many more.
    :p

    Seriously: More previously unseen dinos, please. And from not-dinos-but-alive-at-the-time: Liopleurodon. They could call it Lio.

    I don't care what they call 'em. As long as they've got guns.

    I don't care what they call them. As long as Ian and Alan are both involved and in scenes together.

    T-Rex: ?

    I`ve ALWAYS wanted to see a Jurassic Park film which carried an 18 certificate (Or "R" in the US). Yes, it might veer away from the spirit of the earlier films somewhat, but just think how enjoyable it would be (think "Aliens" with dinosaurs)!!

    R-rated Mr. DNA?
    "And here we see how a new dinosaur was made in the old days. Compare this to how new humans are made"

    But this is interesting: The first dinosaur to have its color scientifically established. The article is already three years old but I didn't know this yet. But the way they used to find it out doesn't work on non-feathered dinosaurs. Still cool, because color is a big thing in appearances.

    And another dinosaur-related thing: I asked a professor from Helsinki University to tell me if calling birds dinosaurs in everyday language is scientifically correct. And it is. So now I can ask cats if they caught any dinosaurs and tell people how many dinosaurs I saw on my dinosaur-feeding board this morning.

    Was this a math professor? I don't think that calling birds "dinosaurs" because they evolved from certain kinds of dinosaurs makes a lot of sense.
