InGen Files Segisaurus BETA version II by Miyess InGen Files Segisaurus BETA version II by Miyess
Jurassic Park InGen Files: Segisaurus halli

Age: Early Jurassic of North America (around 180 million years ago)

Diet: They hunt for small mammals and lizards around dawn and dusk, they are also occasional insectivores and active scavengers.

Length: Adult specimens reach just over a meter in length.

Weight: 7-8 kg

Notes: These close relatives of Coelophysis were one of the first dinosaur species to emerge from the cloning program and can be found on Isla Sorna and Isla Nublar. They form small, loose-knit packs that quickly scatter at the first hint of danger. Segisaurs can be quite aggressive if cornered, but they are otherwise harmless. Not to be confused with Compsognathus, they can be distinguished by their distinctive color, size, and vocalizations. Like compies however, Segisaur saliva contains quite a load of bacteria that can easily result in massive infection once bitten. They use this to their advantage when attacking extremely sick or mortally wounded animals, to speed up the process. They donít have an instant effect to their bites like the compies do, but itís still deadly if you donít get it checked out within a couple of days, sort-of like a komodo dragon bite. They donít go out of their way to attack an animal, not unless it is on its last legs, but if you do get bitten, you can bet theyíre not far away, stalking you... Segisaurs are the major competitors of the compies when it comes to catching small prey items or sniffing out carrion.

We bred them in the hope that they would help the compies by scavenging for carrion too big for the compies to handle, and keep the numbers of insects, snakes, and small mammals in check. They have lightning fast reflexes and run incredibly fast, making them very good at catching small prey items, unfortunately this occasionally also includes Compsognathus. Segisaurs are the only dinosaurs the compies truly fear. They have been seen attacking packs of compies on many occaisions, mostly over food, but sometimes over territory when their packs coincidentally cross paths.


I changed the body shape to be more like a Coelophysis than whatever the hell the old one was...

Well, I'm working on coloring the Segisaurus, but progress is slow with the metriacanthosaur (I just can't get in the mood to work on it)... I have family staying over at the moment, so I probably won't get much done before they leave.

Great big improvement and nice profile too, makes me want to know more about the other more obscure future dinosaurs in your InGen Files. How's super snake coming along? I totally dig the nasty bacteria in its saliva too, as if poisonous compies and dilophosaurs with projectile venom aren't bad enough already. The tree silhouettes look good in this one, and don't see much need to tweak them for future InGen files.

Thanks very much :thanks:

I looked at a Coelophysis skeleton as a reference for this one; I did the other from memory. The Segisaurs prove that little dinosaurs can be cool too, despite playing pretty much the same role as the compies. I’ve included some additional information on this critter in the File description (elaborating on its relationship with the compies on an ecological level), revealing a more sinister side of Segisaurus. For me, it brings to mind the classic view of Coelophysis cannibalizing its young in tough drought conditions, only instead of little Segisaurs here, we have small compies hanging from their jaws...

“I totally dig the nasty bacteria in its saliva too, as if poisonous compies and dilophosaurs with projectile venom aren't bad enough already.” Yeah, well I don’t think they would have an instant effect to their bites like the compies do, but still deadly if you don’t get it checked out within a couple of days, sort-of like a komodo dragon. It also adds a level of creepy to these guys, because if you get bitten, you can bet they’re not far away, stalking you...

With the Titanoboa, I’m slowly getting there. I’m on my second or third version of it, but I’m getting the hang of snake anatomy now. I’ve also slightly changed the position I’m depicting it in with each do over, and I’m getting closer to the way I want it, the way I saw it in my mind.

“The tree silhouettes look good in this one, and don't see much need to tweak them for future InGen files.” Thanks, I’ve created a template that I’ve saved in my InGen Files folder on my desktop that I will use for each file. It looks good, but it will look better when there’s a colored animal and logos. What color scheme would you recommend for Segisaurus? Does the book say? Or JPLegacy/Jurassic Park wiki?

Segisaurus was only briefly featured on a Isla Nublar map in the movie and it was never seen in person, so the color scheme is not listed since we never get to see it. It's also not listed in the book, and so nothing to go from there. But if I had to pick one color scheme to go for, I think the Coelophysis from Walking with Dinosaurs had a good color scheme that I think would be a good match for Segisaurus. But if you are looking for a look that would've been possibly used for the movie, there was concept art for it which you can see on its JP wiki page here [link]

Glad to see you are getting the hang of drawing snakes. Which positions did you choose for the previous versions of Titanoboa? Any thoughts on color schemes for super snake?
