InGen Files - Segisaurus (UPDATED) by Miyess InGen Files - Segisaurus (UPDATED) 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 don’t have an instant effect to their bites like the compies do, but it’s still deadly if you don’t get it checked out within a couple of days, sort-of like a komodo dragon bite. They don’t 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 they’re 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...

This my friend is a beautiful reconstruction of the Segisaurus. It truly is...from neck to tail there is a great asset of detail in every piece and I love what you did by putting the little quills on Segisaurus!

Also great job with the detail in the feet and the impact of color represents a lot showing this dinosaur maybe as a female and a great camouflage in in swampy areas which emphasizes on the realism of what dinosaurs really would've looked like in their in enviorment like we see with most animals today and this deserves a great applause!

Quite the improvement over the first version of this, and the coloration is perfect for a swampy environment and would make sense for a female I think. Looking forward to seeing the other InGen Files animals get similar improvements.

It’s not an improvement at all. It’s exactly the same, all I did was color it! I’m glad you like the colors.

One person says it looks like a female and everyone jumps on the band wagon! Fine, it’s a female. I was going to add white colors on the jaws and neck, but I guess that can be the male color scheme for this species.

I've been on vacation since Friday enjoying the sights and sounds of Cleveland Ohio. For my birthday today, I took 1,537 photos at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. That place has quite the variety of fossils of both dinosaurs and other animals along with a whole mishmash of everything else science related you can think of.

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History has something for everybody who's interested in the sciences, and the hall that contained prehistoric life was quite awesome. If I get around to it, I may post a few photos of the skeletons of the dinosaurs and other animals that were there ranging from prehistoric fish like Dunkleosteus, prehistoric marine reptiles of various species ranging from ichthyosaurs to marine crocodilians, all the way to ice-age megafauna like wooly mammoths, mastodons, sabretooth cats etc. There was also a special section for the shark Megalodon along with the "Sharkabet", a series of paintings by artist Ray Troll with a different shark species living or extinct was represented via a letter of the alphabet. Plus I got another two weeks off from work coming up here in five to six days. In all I had a blast going to this museum for my birthday last Monday.

Oh this isn’t new, but thanks. :)

This is just the second version of my Segisaurus in color. I have much grander things in mind for the re-boot of the InGen Files. Coming soon...

Yes it was done in Photoshop. I was messing around with some reptile scale brushes I downloaded from some website, and I wanted to see how it would look with some color...

I have a bamboo wacom tablet that I use for digital coloring. I used it to color my JPIII male raptor as well.
