Our stegosaurs grew much larger than the largest S. Stenops fossil ever found. Lead geneticist Dr. Wu, believes that paleontologists have simply not yet found an adult specimen of S. Stenops. Others on the team have suggested the possibility that our stegosaur genome was ‘contaminated’ with S.armatus DNA (a much larger species of Stegosaurus). This idea goes some way to explaining why the stegosaurs got so large... whatever the case may be, InGen does not feel that this detracts from our animals.
Imagine that in a few hundred years from now, Indian elephants go extinct. A biotech company not unlike InGen, purchases a large grassland preserve, and begins working on resurrecting them, with the intention of setting them free on the preserve. But during the cloning process, some fragments of bone or dried hide from which they were recovering their DNA was used, actually came from an African elephant that was brought to India for a zoo. The resulting animals would be a mix of Indian and African elephant, but they would still be elephants. The African elephant DNA may have contributed the genes required to grow larger than an Indian elephant, or have bigger ears, or longer tusks... let’s say the cloned Indian elephants were identical to the original Indian elephants of today in every way, except they grew to the size of an African elephant at maturity. They would still be Indian elephants, just slightly bigger than they should normally be. But that wouldn’t matter the people visiting the preserve, who for the first time in over a century, get to see a living, breathing Indian elephant.
