Jurassic World

Question: Do they clone the great white sharks that are fed to the mosasaurus? Great whites are endangered, and it's difficult to see the park getting away with using an endangered species as fodder for an exhibit.

Answer: Most likely yes, the great whites are cloned, raised in captivity, and used as a food source. They can clone extinct animals, living ones may be a lot easier.

Answer: It was never explained how they obtained the monosaurus' food, but it was likely fed a variety of fish, reptiles, etc. Even if they cloned great whites, it would be extremely difficult, it not impossible, to raise and keep that many in captivity. Sharks need specific environmental conditions to survive, including the need to keep constantly moving, otherwise they will die. The amount and cost of all the food it would take to feed all the feeder sharks would probably be more than what the monosaurus eats. The fact that a great white shark is shown appears to be an inside nod to Steven Spielberg's earliest movie hit, "Jaws."

Answer: Its possible they breed these animals or that they are indeed cloned much like the same way the dinosaurs are cloned. But perhaps, since this is a different reality, the great white might not be endangered anymore in this movie.

Question: Since dinosaurs are cold blooded reptiles, why do they try to observe and detect them with heat-seeking cameras? They would have been of the same temperature as their surrounding and therefore invisible from the get go.

Chosen answer: Dinosaurs aren't cold-blooded reptiles. They are warm-blooded (or possibly somewhere between) and are more closely related to birds. Remember the first movie where Dr. Wu told Ellie that dinosaurs hold a temperature above that of the air.

Question: If all of the base DNA for the dinosaurs in the park was obtained from dino-blood inside mosquitoes, where did they get the DNA for the Mosasaurus from? A flying blood-sucking insect would not come into contact with a sea dwelling dinosaur, and there are no amber-equivalents in the ocean to trap any sea based blood suckers.

Chosen answer: The scientific inaccuracy of the mosquitoes/DNA notwithstanding, at the end of the film the Mosasaurus surfaces at the edge of its pool in order to drag in the Indominus Rex. Assuming the Mosasaurus did the same thing to catch prey in its own time period, it's feasible a mosquito could have landed on its body and extracted some blood in that short amount of time, especially if the prey was putting up resistance.

Serious B

Question: How come the velociraptors became so friendly when helping with chasing down the Indominus Rex, when earlier in the movie Owen nearly got killed by them if it wasn't for the gate that separated them?

Answer: It shows that they can never be fully trained or domesticated and their behavior is unpredictable according to the circumstances they're in. Owen was nearly killed at the beginning because the raptors had become overly excited by chasing the pig and then after the helper guy fell into the enclosure. This was out of the normal routine for them, and they immediately went into hunting mode with anyone becoming prey. Owen was barely able to control the situation. Later, Owen was able to re-established his alpha role, and the raptors were focused on the T-rex. Even then, Owen could barely control them, and they probably would have attacked him and the others if the T-rex had not re-appeared.

Question: Wouldn't the gyrospheres get stuck all the time, especially on wet patches of grass? I can't imagine the glass surface would get enough grip.

Chosen answer: Apparently they are heavy enough to have traction in several types of terrain. Presumably if the weather was bad enough they would shut down the ride but for the purposes of the film, they seem to work just fine.

Mistakes

Inside Jurassic World's main control room, Chris Pratt looks at a view screen depicting a paramilitary team tracking down the escaped I-Rex. In an homage to the film Aliens, the screen is complete with POV cam footage and heart rate monitors. Unfortunately, the FX team didn't catch the fact that all four people are shown having identical heart rates. Ridley Scott made the same mistake in Prometheus.

Trivia

When the pterosaur flies into the restaurant, a man in a blue denim shirt wearing a safari-brim tan fedora and a red handkerchief tied around his neck can be seen jumping away from the creature. It is not Alan Grant, but this extra was dressed in the same outfit Dr. Grant wore in the original Jurassic Park.
