InGen Files - Tyrannosaurus rex by Miyess InGen Files - Tyrannosaurus rex by Miyess
*Prototype.

Jurassic Park InGen Files: Tyrannosaurus rex

Age: Late Cretaceous

Diet: Carnivore (Hunter/Scavenger)

Length: Around 12 meters long when full grown.

Notes: EXTREEMLY DANGEROUS
Tyrannosaurus rex is one of the most well-known of all dinosaurs. It is no longer considered the largest of the theropods, with only Spinosaurus being ahead of it, but it is certainly the most powerful. Tyrannosaurus had very short arms with only two fingers. Although these were probably useless while hunting, its jaws were not: Tyrannosaurus has an enormous skull armed with teeth the size of steak knives. Unlike the teeth of most meat-eaters, tyrant dinosaur teeth are very thick and capable of crushing bones. The skull and neck bones show that T. rex had the largest neck muscles of any meat-eating dinosaur.

Tyrannosaurus Rex is capable of running as fast as 32 mph. They display some sexual dimorphism as adults. Males have more prominent brow ridges than females. Males also have a tendency to have visible facial scaring (probably due to battles over territory with other T. rex and carnivores or mates). Females are also lighter in colour than males, and are slightly bigger.

Males are slightly smaller than females, and are darker in colour. They also have a large throat pouch that females seem to lack. Males are typically green, while females are typically brown or grey.

Alan Grant states that the sight of Tyrannosaurus rex is based on movement, so if you don't move the animal won't see you. Dr. Grant used this knowledge to escape from the T. rex on Isla Nublar. Grant based this on papers by palaeontologist John Roxton wrote an article in which he stated that the brain of the Tyrannosaurus was very similar to that of frogs. Therefore, Roxton concluded that T. rex‘s sight was based on movement. As Grant had no expertise in brain anatomy he accepted the conclusions of the article. Supporting this theory is that the Tyrannosaur gives a loud roar to scare its prey into revealing their position by running away. The T. rex may then make the kill.

Tyrannosaurus is shown as being a protective parent. Tyrannosaurs are shown to pair off during mating, and both parents will remain with their offspring during its growth, exhibiting very powerful parenting and protective instincts, going to great lengths to ensure an infant's safety.

Tyrannosaurs are territorial by nature, and will attempt to drive away anything that might be deemed dangerous, whether animate or not. They are known to be efficient parents, with both male and female keeping close guard over infants and bringing them food for a considerable matter of months. They will ferociously defend their offspring during this stage from predators and humans, and will even travel far outside their native territories to find them if they get lost. Like most predators, they presumably teach their young how to hunt once the time comes.

Two Tyrannosaurs were present on Isla Nublar; one adult and one juvenile, although there was no interaction between them. The Tyrannosaurus had a sensitive skin, and therefore sought shelter from the sun under the canopy.

Tyrannosaurs in jurassic park were larger than 12 meters. The sub adult male in part 3 was around 37 feet, the buck male in the lost world was 40-41 feet, while the female in the same movie was 42 feet I believe, the female in the 1st movie was 46 feet. If you're going based on jurassic park canon then it should be 14 meters when fully grown. If you're using actual facts then Nevermind. Still great job

The animal seems to be a bit to slender in general, and it's stance seems a bit to upright.

But then again, in 2013 nobody watches Jurassic Park because of it's accurate portrayal of dinosaurs anymore.

Actually, of all the dinosaurs portrayed in terms of looks - Tyrannosaurus turned out one of the best. It's main drawback was the size of the arms - too big, but they fixed it in the 3rd or may be even the 2nd film, since in the 3rd film when you see the model and the dino in the film, arms dont look that big and massive anymore. And yeah - it needs to lean a bit more forward/down. I would also make the teeth on the sides (both the lower and upper jaws) larger to make them stand out abit more. Other than that - I dont see anymore errors in t-rex, while other dinos probably might have a lot more, if we talk about the "main" dino cast of the trilogy, not the cameo. Funny enough, many cameo dinos turned out almost 100% accurate to my point of view anyway compared to the majority of the main ones lol

if it is based on movement then every tree on sorna and nublar would have had a rex run into it once or twice

Nonsense. They can easily distinguish background movement from an animal quickly darting from the undergrowth in plain view.

The reason the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park had vision based on movement was because the geneticists filled the missing bits of the dinosaur genomes with the DNA of frogs – some of those genes coded for reproductive abilities in a single sex environment, and others for controlling the visual cortex. This is why the dinosaurs in Jurassic park were able to reproduce despite being all female, and it is the same reason the tyrannosaur had trouble seeing stationary animals. In the real world, tyrannosaurs could see just fine, but frogs really do have movement-based vision.

It doesn’t mean they can’t see a potential snack, simply that it does not register as anything of interest until it moves.

I tried to find a youtube video on it that I recently saw for you, but I couldn’t find it. Basically it was an experiment where they show a frog a horizontal line that looks like a worm wriggling and once they start moving the line the frog goes for it. Then they show the frog a vertical line ant doesn’t look like a crawling worm, and they can basically move/wriggle it all day and the frog won’t go for it. The researcher said you can basically throw a frog into a bucket of dead worms, and since they’re not moving – the frog will starve to death. It’s simply how their brains work.

well even though it only notices movement, touch, smell, hearing, and taste might be heightened to make up for sight.

Indeed the other senses of a JP tyrannosaur easily make up for its’ shortcomings in terms of vision. You’ll remember in the first novel as well as in the second movie where characters are trapped by a tyrannosaur behind a waterfall and the rex is trying to get at them – for some weird reason; it sticks its tongue out and starts licking them...

If you examine the endocasts of fossil specimens, one of the largest sections of the tyrannosaur brain in the olfactory bulb. Once again,  recall the scene from TLW where the tyrannosaur finds Sarah, Kelly, and the rest of the survivors’ camp simply by smelling the infant tyrannosaurs’ blood on her clothes – even after they moved out of their territory.

I don’t think the sense of touch would play a big role in tracking prey, but hearing is definitely an important one, and there are also many examples from the novels and movies where the tyrannosaurs are clearly listening. A notable example would be from the first movie where Tim slams the door shut, and the tyrannosaur instantly looks down and sees them.

If you told me how many teeth a giganotosaurus has, or the length of its tibia off the top of your head, then you would 'sound like someone who knows a lot' as you say.

I think you just wanted a segue to ask if I was going to make a Giganotosaurus InGen File. The answer is no. Giganotosaurus did not feature in any of the Jurassic park movies so far, and it hasn’t featured in any major JP Games. It was not mentioned in any of the books. Unless it features in JPIV, I will not include it in the InGen Files. I will be making a Carcharodontosaurus InGen File as it featured in JPOG.

utd7 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
No not really just Giganotosaurus popped into my head as being bigger than Rex and some even say Carcharodontosaurus was larger or as large as Rex. Well i understand your reasoning and even so Carcharodontosaurus is quite similair. Will you do Suchomimus since he was mentioned in JP3?

In theory yes, but we have to think of some way that they will not compete with the baryonys and Spinosaurus population on Isla Sorna...

:iconutd7:
utd7 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
Well in one game The Lost World: Jurassic Park that i had showed you once for Carnotaurus reference the Baryonyx were shown nesting and living in caves so maybe they could be out of the way. And Spinosaurus well you could say that the Isla Sorna ones have taken a liking to dinosaur meat more than fish meat if it helps. I'm really happy again that you are maybe gonna do Suchomimus since it was only mentioned briefly in JP3 but still it shows that it was present on Ingen's List.

:iconmiyess:
Miyess Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013   Digital Artist
I never liked the idea of a 9.5 meter long animal living in a cave. But I think I may have found a compromise. As you said the Baryonyx could only use the caves while incubating their eggs, and remain in the area the rest of the year. I’ll have to look at my map of Isla Sorna again, but I think there is a big lake and two smaller lakes and plenty of river systems... [link] I was going to say that the Baryonyx and Suchomimus used different rivers and the Spinosaurus used a lake to fish from. I guess the three Spinosaurs could simply use different river systems but the Spinosaurus was also big enough to hunt larger prey.

Carcharodontosaurus is the closest thing to a Giganotosaurus. If you can find a major Game or refernce to it existing in the movie universe then I'm al ears, but until then...

Cryolophosaurus sounds cool but Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna are volcanic islands, described as being very hot and humid. I don’t think it would be an appropriate setting for a Cryolophosaurus. Unless you can think of some niche on the island that wouldn’t be too hot for it, or some other solution...

Your second link doesn't work.

utd7 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
I'm very happy you are considering Cryolophosaurus because it's one of my fav dinosaurs i've always liked it's head crest. Well i think in the Jurassic when the Cryo used to exist Antarctica was closer to the equator and there were no poles so it probably was quite dry and humid too hence there was a lot of life with prosauropods and crocodiles living there as well. So i think it shouldn't really effect the Cryolophosaurus too much on Isla Sorna.
By the way Happy New Year :)
