InGen Files - Jurassic Park III Male Raptor by Miyess InGen Files - Jurassic Park III Male Raptor by Miyess
Jurassic Park Velociraptor (Male)

Jurassic Park – The InGen Files [link]

Species: Velociraptor mongoliensis

Description: Velociraptor was a pack hunter native to china and Mongolia with a razor-sharp, retractable claw on the second toe. They are intelligent, fast, and extremely vicious ambush predators that can reach speeds of up to 98 km/h out in the open, capable of bringing down animals much larger than themselves. Velociraptors are considered one of the most dangerous dinosaurs bred for the park. Raptors have certainly been the most difficult to handle. They have a decentralized nervous system and are slow bleeders (despite a fast bird-like metabolism) making them very hard to put down. They have caused more employee deaths in Jurassic Park than any other dinosaur. We tagged the most dangerous animals with radio collars that transmitted warning signals. Work men carried little boxes that played a tone when a tagged animal came near, at which point they would flee in terror.
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS

We released the first raptor on April 22, 1985. It wandered back and forth near the wall for four minutes and 22 seconds, before hearing a noise which drew it further off into the brush. The raptor came back towards sundown, it drank nervously, careful of the dangers of the Jurassic water hole. The raptor preened itself, utterly confident of its right to be there, with absolutely no consciousness that it was not the sovereign ruler of this earth. For four months we monitored it while it preyed on herds in the southern forest. We never knew why it grew so large. In the summer of 1988 it began moving north. We released more raptors, and they became a pack. In the jungle, the forest, and the mountain range the three raptor tribes staked out their territories. Uneasy borders were drawn along forest ridges and ponds. A third tribe of raptors chose the mountain for their territory, a leaner tougher breed - quick, living on birds and tiny lizards. By 1987 the first of them had reached full size, and the ecosystem of another era began to assert itself.

Dr. Wu bred a handful of different raptor ‘species’ or morphs in an attempt to select the most suitable for the park on Nublar. We never figured out why they grew so large. Wu suspects Deinonychus DNA. He used bird DNA to fill the gaps in the genome of the regal morph (dubbed so because of the ‘crown’ of quills on the males’ necks). As a result this form is more closely related to the original cretaceous raptor than the tiger morphs. But the board ended up choosing the tiger morph for exhibition on Nublar. It had more reptilian DNA than the other morphs, lacked quills/feathers, and behaved in a vicious manner that park visitors would expect to see.

After the accident at the park, a hurricane wiped out our facility on Site B. Lightning strikes caused power outages and the electric perimeter fences were rendered useless. Large carnivores broke out of their enclosures. There were reports of an explosion in one of the research facilities. We suspected sabotage. People began to panic. As our staff evacuated they tried to salvage as much research data as possible. We sealed off the town save for a few crucial gates (southward to the lowlands, eastwards to the power plant and lab). As we left we vandalized our own locking mechanisms. InGen tolerates no trespasses. Buildings were looted. Technicians and workmen crowded around the docks, fearing they might be left behind when the security ring collapsed. Armed guards stood watch. We had to leave the animals to fend for themselves. And that they did. To our knowledge, all raptor species bred still survive in the wild around our breeding facility on Isla Sorna. Infrared shows they keep to the center of the island. The raptors are extremely territorial.

Our research indicates that despite being slightly smaller than the tiger morph, the regal morph raptors have a somewhat larger head in proportion to body size and are more intelligent. They display greater organization as a pack. They are capable of a broad range of very complex vocalizations, most notable are a deep resonating sound which they seemingly employ during hunting, and a sharp, high-pitched attack scream. The raptors are sexually dimorphic. The males are much more colourful than the females and are easily distinguishable. The males of the regal morph have red patches around their eyes and on their crests. They have keratinous quills along the back of their necks that can be raised if the animal is startled, or to display aggression. Raptor packs are ruled by a dominant female. The queen selects an alpha male and together they form a breeding pair. The alpha is often challenged by younger males for the right to mate. These confrontations often end in death for the loser. The animals breed in communal nests in densely forested areas, usually near a water source. Raptors are known to take part in cooperative breeding (where offspring from a previous mating help in raising their siblings). The non-parental care givers may be other potentially reproducing adults, or reproductively mature but non-reproducing subordinate adults, helping to feed and protect the chicks. Cooperative breeding is generally associated with reduced dispersal from the natal nest or range. It is unclear if this is a characteristic of the original raptors from which our animals were cloned, or whether they have simply chosen this method of reproduction due to limited space and resources on the island. They generally avoid larger predators, but they are very protective of their young, and have been observed to stand their ground in defence of their nesting sites.


*In short this is a far less complicated explanation. V. nublarensis in JP are all female raptors and in TLW we only saw males, and V. sornaensis in JPIII we see both male and female. The skin and eyes of the female raptor from Jurassic Park III are different, but apart from that only the shape of the snout is a bit altered in comparison to the raptors from the first movie.

It is also possible that the Jurassic park raptors are species not found in the fossil record...

Dr. Wu is asked the same question in the book, and his reply was that they compare the new DNA to the dinosaurs they have already bred. If it is a Parasaurolophus for example, it will be similar to the Edmontosaurs they already have, and they would know to expect some sort of hadrosaur. 

But when they encounter unfamiliar DNA - a new species, they simply grow it and find out what it is. :)

Actually the Velociraptors from the movies are Deinonychus - in the book it's explained that Deinonychus was "considered one of the Velociraptors", and were referred to under the same genus. The logical assumption is that they are not Velociraptor mongoliensis but "Velociraptor" antirrhopus, with subspecies "nublariensis" and "sornaensis".

Sooner than I thought, here it is! ^-^ the first post with the translation of your raptor story :) Thankyou very much for your permission. As you will see your name and link to DA is right at the end of the post.

I named it "Velociraptor Species Development" and added to the "Field Notes" section, which I plan it to be some kind of workers-scientists-admins diary for Site B events.

Again, thankyou so much for allowing me to use this, and please tell me what you think of the website:

Thanks man. :)

Believe it or not, I’ve never actually played trespasser! But yes, there are some elements from that game that I’ve incorporated into the story here. I downloaded the sound bites from jplegacy, and chose suitable quotes from there. I wanted to give the InGen Files an authentic Jurassic Park feel (which is also why I used the palm tree silhouette from the Jurassic Park logo in the background here), and it seemed like a good way to go. Despite never getting a chance to play the game as a kid, I think that by incorporating some quotes from Tresspasser, people reading the InGen Files who did get that opportunity and are still very fond of the game, are filled with a great sense of nostalgia.

I’ve actually been thinking of doing something like this for a very long time, but when I started looking up Jurassic Park art here on DA for inspiration, I soon realized that other people had already beaten me to the punch with very similar ideas. I was inspired by your JP-art, Hodari Nundus' The Lost files, and Jazon19s' InGen Lost Files to name a few...

My InGen Files are different in that we get the story from InGens’ perspective, and Hammonds’ narration was exactly what I was looking for with this. The InGen Files are the contents of a folder recovered from Isla Sorna that were leaked to the public (some time after the events of the third movie). The files contain images & information on all the dinosaurs bred by InGen. [link]

Here are a few other entries that will be officially added to the InGen Files soon.

Utahraptor

Miyess Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012   Digital Artist
Pachycephalosaurus, that’s a good idea! I’m thinking of doing a full body sketch, with three close-ups of the JP pachycephalosaur and different stages of development (Dracorex > Stygimoloch > Pachycephalosaurus)since they’ve consulted Jack Horner for the past three movies it would make sense that he will inject more of his ideas into the fourth...

Normally man is a menace when it comes to consulting on dinosaurs in media, especially with the JP franchise. He says T-rex was a scavenger, not a hunter. Horner is dead wrong there... What, just because it has bone crushing teeth/jaws that makes it a scavenger all the time?! Hyenas have bone crushing jaws but they also hunt. Lions are powerful hunters, but they also scavenge… Things in the real world are not so black and white. And he knows that! It's not predator all the time, or scavenger all the time. A large carnivore must be able to do both and do them well in order to survive. I'm not saying T-rex would have turned up its nose at carrion, simply that it most likely hunted down its prey most of the time. And there is evidence of this in the form of wounds on the bones of Triceratops (which have unmistakably been made by a tyrannosaur) that have healed. This means Tyrannosaurs were actively attacking living animals that occasionally managed to escape... He says there is evidence for his claims that T-rex was a scavenger, in that Tyrannosaurs couldn't run; because a fall would be fatal (due to their tiny front limbs being useless as support for breaking the fall). But certain bones in the feet were fused. This is often found in cursorial animals. And anyway, there is presently good evidence to suggest that tyrannosaur lived in a family group (like a pride of lions), which lends weight to the fact that they very well may have been ambush predators (where one or two animals drive a prey item into the waiting jaws of the rest of the pride). Ambush predators only need to be capable of short bursts of speed to surprise and bring down prey. And if T-rex was not the top predator as Horner suggests, then what was?! One thing that annoys me about Horner, is that he presents his arguments for T-rex being a scavenger (in this documentary he was in), but he neglects to present/or only presents very weak, watered-down counter arguments to the points he makes. This is straw-manning at its worst...

He has definitely used his influence over Spielberg/Universal to pretty much crap all over the Jurassic Park franchise, and I truly resent him for it. Though I strongly disagree with his views on tyrannosaurus, Horner does have his moments. I was watching a TED Talk that he gave the other day and to be honest, he makes a pretty good case for the scrapping of some dinosaurs that are likely the young or juvenile form of other dinosaurs (ex; Nanotyrannus and Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops and Torosaurus, Dracorex, Stygimoloch, and Pachycephalosaurus...) He actually provides some good evidence based on ontogeny and size comparison, and even living birds (cassowary allometric cranial ontogeny) to support his case...

that sounds like a good idea :) i like your style

yes i agree with you, the spinosaurus won over t.rex just because i felt i would, not since it was capable of in reality.
T.rex was not a scavenger, i didint need sterooptical vision, reallly good sense of smell and bone crushing jaws if it didn´t hunted other animals.

yes those parts are usefull but the t.rex view i all wrong.

Very good point about Tyrannosaurs having binocular vision but I have to disagree on the bone crushing jaws part – that is actually a very common feature of scavengers; hyenas for example are infamous for their ability to crush bone (and it’s pretty much the only thing Jack Horner is basing these claims about T-rex being a full time scavenger on).

It always bothered me how I had it before with only a white background, a logo and the raptor, it just felt so empty. I think that by adding the silhouette I managed to fill the space and set a much more authentic Jurassic Park feel... Do you think the trees should be a little bit darker though?

With regards to the recent art-theft of this image, I’m a member of Jurassic Park fans, as you can see; that’s one of the groups I uploaded my raptor to, and most likely where the guy came across it in the first place. When I first saw it in my deviantWATCH, I just stopped everything I was doing and just sat there scrutinizing every inch it. There’s just too much in common with mine for it to be a mere coincidence... You’re absolutely right; it would have been nice to have been asked first. Not to mention that I put copyright stamps in the descriptions and on all my work, so there’s really no excuse. Though quick look through his gallery is more than enough to demonstrate that just about everything this guy uploads appears to have been traced off of movie screen shots or Google images. He didn’t even do a good job of it! It looks like he used his foot to control the mouse and color it in MS Paint! Still, I find it irritating that he couldn’t at least ask my permission before using my work... You will find I’m a pretty nice guy when you do the right thing and ask before you use my work, as you can see from my recent exchange in the comments with PonchoFirewalker01 here; [link]

I don’t have time for people who take without asking, and then don’t even give credit where credit is due, or at least link to the source that they used as a reference.

His ‘art’ needs serious work, and it’s clearly based on this raptor (he even gave it an identical paint-job, only adding a bunch of scars to make it look a bit different, but that’s not fooling anyone). I say based because his work is so amateurish that it’s hard to tell whether he used my art as a reference, or simply traced over it. I would hope it was the former rather than the latter, because if you’re so crap at drawing that even when you trace over something you do that bad a job of it, that’s just sad.

I’ve already reported it to DA, and I’ll get around to sending the admins at Jurassic Park fans a message about this later. I haven’t heard back from DA yet so if you’d like to help and report him as well it might get them to take action...

I do think that you prly could darken up the trees to make them a bit better. Hopefully your situation regarding the art theft gets resolved without any trouble. I think you should use something in the backgrounds of future InGen Files like you did in your updated raptor but different for each species in an InGen File.

Yeah, I thought it was just because I was looking at it on my laptop screen at a tilt, but I think it might be a bit too light. I’ll fix it tonight when I get back from work.

I actually planned to use this silhouette for all the backgrounds of future InGen Files. Could you possibly make some suggestions or link me to examples of what I could use in the backgrounds of future InGen Files that might achieve a similar effect of Jurassic Park-iness (lol!) I too thought of this, but the only thing I can think of is perhaps a silhouette of a high voltage Jurassic Park electric fence (in place of/or in conjunction with the palm tree silhouette). Got anything else in mind? Please let me know, because at this point that is the only other possibility I have in mind, but I would love to add some variety to the InGen Files...

The silhouette of a high voltage Jurassic Park electric fence with palm trees could work certainly, and the use of the dinosaur signs could work as well, customized of course for the species not depicted on screen. Custom logos for each animal could be cool, and the Jurassic Park entrance gate could certainly be used as well if you feel so inclined to use it. If I can think of something good, I'll tell you. Carlosdino would be a good person to go to about doing backgrounds, he's got some really good ideas that may be of interest. The trailerlab could be used in the background for the T-Rex InGen File I think and or the high hide could be used in its place.

I tried to turn a picture of the Jurassic Park gates into a silhouette but it didn’t turn out so well, so I scrapped that idea. But I have high hopes for a silhouette of the electric perimeter fence... I’m thinking a silhouette of palm trees and the T-rex skeleton from the logo for the background of the Tyrannosaur InGen File, and the same thing only with a Spinosaurus skeleton for the Spinosaur InGen File...

“Custom logos for each animal could be cool” Sorry, but I’m not going to design a custom logo for every single species in Jurassic Park! This one will do; [link] Plus it links them all together, letting you know that the images you're looking at are part of a series.

I'd just like to say that I am of the opinion that the raptors of Jurassic Park are not Velociraptor mongoliensis, but rather misclassified Deinonychus antirrhopus, and I have three peices of evidence to back this up.

1. JP raptors match Deinonychus much more closely in terms of size than Velociraptor, at least in terms of length (Deinonychus: 11' 2"; JP Raptor: 13' 6"). The reason they look so much bigger is because they have proportionatly longer legs, making them taller (Deinonychus: 2' 10" at the hips; JP Raptor: 4' 3" at the hips).

2. In the first and third films, as well as the first book, we have characters digging up fossil skeletons of "Velociraptor" in Montana (which is a hotbed for Deinonychus) as opposed to Mongolia (the true homeland of Velociraptor).

3. When Michael Chrichton was selecting dinosaurs for his first book in the 1980s, he referenced some of Greg S. Paul's work, who (at the time) considered Deinonychus to be a species of Velociraptor. Chrichton even mentioned this in the book, and this seems to have carried over into the films.

I completely agree with all the points you made. But the InGen Files are written from the point of view of InGen researchers, the contents of a folder containing images & information on all the creatures bred by InGen (‘recovered’ from Isla Sorna and leaked to the public). As such, I can only say what InGen thinks the raptors are, not what they actually are. I think I’ll add a note saying that one researchers working on the raptors suspected that the raptors were actually Deinonychus and not Velociraptor... Thanks. :)
