  • 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.

    Jurassic Park dinosaurs arent realistic, but they weren't meant to be. The point is the Jurassic Park movies are cool, and the made dinosaurs more popular, which lots of dino experts like.

    He really just glossed over the fact that one of the most popular and most widely associated dinosaurs, that being the Velociraptor, isn't exactly right in the film... It wasn't even an accident really, they knew that the dinosaur being shown wasn't a Velociraptor at all, and the "mistake" was actually a choice. The most likely "actual" dinosaur to compare to, based on approximate size, would be Deinonychus. They, along with Velociraptor (and 4 or 5 others) are all of a similar species, with very similar body shapes and that distinctive large toe-claw. But when it came down to the marketing they used the name Velociraptor because it frankly is easier to say than Deinonychus, but mostly because Velociraptor just sounds a lot more impressive and scary overall.
