  • Nathan Smith, associate curator in the Dinosaur Institute at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, talks about every dinosaur that appears in the Jurassic Park films. How realistically were the dinosaurs in the films portrayed? Is the T-Rex actually the king of the dinosaurs? Is the real life Dilophosaurus actually SCARIER than its film counterpart? Nathan uses his dino-expertise to highlight the similarities and differences between what we know now, and how the movies depicted them.

    To me, paleontologists are always that one kid who was OBSESSED with dinosaurs but who actually now makes a living of being obsessed with dinosaurs.

    The Play the position of T.rex eyes were very much similar to that of modern humans, but their eyes and optic lobes (part of the brain associated with vision, hearing and more) were much larger than humans. Which means that T.rex unlike many other dinosaurs had a powerful combination of good eyesight and hearing.

    IKR! For a while it was the biggest dinosaur ever found, and I still think it is! It would’ve been perfect to have the Largest Dinosaur these movies.

    This dude seems like a genuinely nice guy and one of those people who just loves what he does. I wish I could have continued my childhood ambition of being a paleontologist.

    I hope you can still reconnect with your passion in some way, even if not as a paleontologist. Volunteering might be a great. Museums, reptile sanctuaries, etc. There are even people with YouTube channels where they play with dino toys and have huge followings! So there is always a way if we think outside the box. I know it's hard to make time for those things and everyone's situation is different. My son has been in love with dinosaurs since 3 yrs old. I always think about how most of us don't get to ...
