Jurassic Park III

New this month Corrected entry: Parasailing Ben and Erik was in a hurry to release themselves from the suddenly emptied boat headed towards the skerry. Nothing would have happened to them if they had decided to stay attached. When the boat had come to a rest they could have floated down and looked for something that could have helped them. Perhaps a satellite phone, flares or a life raft?

New this month Correction: The danger was landing in the water strapped to the para-sail and harness, which would have definitely meant drowning. Detaching themselves means they have the time to steer for land, whilst they still have altitude.


Corrected entry: When Grant and the others enter the compound of the destroyed facility, you can see the pick-up truck that Ian Malcolm had locked himself into, during The Lost World, to avoid the raptor attack. Notice the window with the hole in it.


Correction: Actually, the facility in the second movie is different to this one, in the second movie they are at a communications/workers compound. In this movie they are at an embryonics facility.

Corrected entry: When the giant pterodactyl grabs Eric, it should start to lose altitude. Even a creature with a wingspan that big cannot carry 80-90 pounds or more. Also, the baby pterodactyls cannot seem to do anything but wiggle their wings feebly when Eric is dropped to them, but afterwards, they are fluttering around him.

Correction: All scientists can do is guessing how the dinosaurs might have looked like or how their muscular structure was, only the bones reflect a true image. So nobody knows how strong the petrodactyl would be. You can't tell that he couldn't have had the strength to carry Eric.

Ronnie Bischof

Correction: Exactly, fluttering. That doesn't mean their flying was, in a sense, fully developed.

Corrected entry: When they're are in the stampede of dinosaurs, Udesky falls and Paul picks him up. If you look at the film, Udesky is always coming last. Paul is always about 10-20m in front, but he magically morphs behind Udesky somehow when he falls. You never see Paul Kirby fall down, so that is ruled out.

Correction: In the scene you seem to be describing (which is when the group is running from the raptors), we do see Udesky fall, but no one picks him up, he picks himself up. However, he was never always coming up last, he starts out ahead of other and even passes people. In all the other running from the dinosaur scenes before Udesky dies, he doesn't fall.


Corrected entry: After the crash Tea Leoni and the rest of the crew run and run and do some more running, and during all this they are all hitting mud puddles, creeks, dirt in general. When this is all over Tea's yellow shirt is still yellow and not black or a dark yellow - it looks as clean as it was when she was flying on the plane before the crash. Funny how everyone else looks semi-dirty though.

Correction: They weren't running through mud puddles and creeks, just tall grass and an open clearing. Some characters got dirty because they fell on the ground (some of the mud we kind of see is Dr. Grant crawling around felled trees). But, her shirt certainly is as dirty as other characters who didn't fall down.


Corrected entry: Nothing could be seen through the green liquid in the large glass tubes, so how come the Raptor's head could be seen so easily?

Correction: We can see through the green liquid (the first tube actually has a lot more green tint than the other tubes). But it's based on the angle you're looking at and the way light enters. It was hard to see through when the camera panned across the curves of the tubes or when the characters were far away from the tube, but the raptor was pressed up near the tube wall.


Corrected entry: Judging from the way the camera pans, and how the Raptor head moves accordingly, it's impossible for it to have actually been positioned behind the glass tube. The only way this look could have been achieved is if the head was inside the tube.

Correction: The raptor is behind the glass tube. It's just at a different angle than you're probably thinking. The raptor was behind it, but had its head to the left of it (so it could have the right side of its face "pressed" against it). When you see it move, it tilts its head down a bit and swings right, which it would have to do to swing around a cylinder tube.


Corrected entry: When Nash is pulled out of the airplane, he is pulled out by one leg. He is swung around for a few seconds by the leg, and then dropped to the ground. He drags himself for a couple seconds, and then gets on his hands and knees and tries crawling away. Both legs are perfectly fine, with no cuts or anything. How can he be on both knees if one of his legs was in the clamping jaws of the Spinosaurus?

Correction: We just see the dinosaur grab him with his mouth to pull him out, there's no indication it was trying to eat him there or that its teeth were "clamped" down. Many animals can carry their young with their teeth without injury to the young and the dinosaur simply may have been figuring out if Nash was dangerous, poisonous, or food, etc before biting into him.


Corrected entry: After they land on the island, mercenaries are securing the perimeter. They run off to the right side from the perspective of the plane. Nash and Udesky come back, turn the plane 180 degrees and quickly accelerate on the runway. How come Cooper exits the forest from the right side in front of them, when he actually should be on the left side several hundred meters behind them? Sure, he could have made it that far on his own, but in that case, there wouldn't be any Spinosaurus attacking, because its roar was heard several shots before from the opposite side too.


Correction: Cooper enters the forest near the windsock, which is behind the plane and on the left hand side (where the door opens). When he exits the forest he is in front of the plane and comes from the right side of the plane (away from the door side), which makes sense as the plane's turned around.


Corrected entry: When the Ceratosaurus walks up close to the people, the subsequent shot turns to Grant & Amanda. At this moment a crew member in a hat is visible behind their backs.

Correction: It's just Eric on the boat.

Corrected entry: When Amanda is viewing the large tubes, the camera pans a large distance, showing us that there isn't anything behind the tubes, especially something the size of a raptor.

Correction: The raptor's neck shows that its body is positioned in the opposite direction to which the camera moves. So you couldn't see its body. Plus, the camera switches the view before it reaches the tube.

Corrected entry: Right when the Spinosaurus eats Cooper, the plane slams into it. A plane going at that speed would have enough force to shatter the Spinosaurus's bones and slam it into the ground, as well as smash the front of the plane.


Correction: We cannot say for sure the plane hits the Spinosaurus directly since we don't see the impact. But from the angle we see and the blood on the windscreen, the plane (or propeller) just clips the fin on the Spinosaurus' back. Hardly enough to break bones and knock it over.


Corrected entry: In the first movie, the T. Rex always made a big thud sound, but when the spinosaurus walks (it is larger than the rex) up to them at the fence, it doesn't make nearly as much of a sound and surprises them. (00:55:35)

Correction: It's not the size of the animal. It has to do with weight distribution and how the animal walks. An elephant walking sounds like a lot of shuffling. But a child scampering can sound very loud.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: When Eric hears the ring tone, he runs and meets his parents at a huge fence for large animals as large as a T. rex. In "The Lost World", Hammond says "site b" was where the animals were kept for a few months. There was no use for a fence that tall because even though it only takes several years for large dinosaurs to be fully grown, at a few months old they could not be large enough to need a fence of that size. (00:54:50)


Correction: The fact that Hammond kept the secret of Site B from everyone, then surely Hammond has other secrets. Like an enclosure with a tall fence to keep a larger dinosaur than the T-Rex in it.


Corrected entry: In the scene where the Spino is attacking the plane on the ground, he sticks his snout into the plane. After a couple seconds he takes his head out really fast. Watch the first couple frames of the plane in the next shot in slo-mo and you can see the Spino's mouth is still in the plane.

Correction: By site policy you cannot use slow motion as the person watching the movie has to physically alter it to see it.

Corrected entry: The way that Nash dies in the beginning of the movie is almost identical to the way that Quint died in Jaws. (Nash is Quint, The Dinosaur is The Shark, and Mrs Kirby is Chief Brody.)


Correction: Nash didnt die from sliding into the dinosaur's mouth. He was only pulled out of the airplane. He died several shots later from having his head chomped on. In Jaws, Quint is directly eaten after sliding into the shark's mouth. Either way, many characters have died from similar circumstances in movies, which doesn't really make this trivia.


Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, when the boat crew is killed, why isn't the boat itself destroyed? Yes, the top is a bit damaged but the main body of the boat is fine. A creature that could kill the whole crew in that short space of time would surely damage the rest of the boat as well. Even a modern day crocodile can easily smash a hole in the side of a small boat just using its tail.

Correction: The Pterosaurs only attack the humans for invading their territory (and in the process, they damage the flimsy roof of the boat that was sheltering a human). They were not out to destroy a boat.


Is it ever explicitly stated anywhere what dinosaur attacks the boat?

In the original script it said that there were to also be scenes where Grant sees foot prints and other evidence. The opening shot was done before the final script was done. They used that scene for the opening and did not re-shoot it.

Corrected entry: How was Ben killed? He was stuck in a tree, so the smaller dinosaurs couldn't reach him. You can see that the skeleton's legs are missing, which makes you think of a t-rex or spinosaurus, but surely that would have torn the whole body down from the tree.

Correction: He could easily have died in the tree from exposure, hunger, disease or any reason. He would start to decompose, scavengers would get to him, and this would cause his legs to drop to the ground, where they would be carried away by other animals. For instance.


Corrected entry: The guys in the movie start searching giant poo for the satellite phone. Shouldn't it have been digested, even just a bit on the corners? Plus in later scenes, before it rains, the phone is perfectly clean.

Correction: If something is indigestible, it's not going to be digested, even a little bit on the corners. Sharks have been caught with intact licence plates, bottles, even scuba tanks, with no wear on them other than maybe teeth marks.

Corrected entry: The parachute they use at the beginning of the movie says DINO-SOAR on the top, but in various scenes the lettering is gone.

Correction: The words DINO-SOAR are written on the bottom of the parachute, so that the guys from the boat can see it, but an airplane from above not. In all the shots from above there is no writing, but from the boat, when seeing the two guys or when the parachute is hanging from the tree, you can see the writing as you see the chute from below.

Ronnie Bischof

Corrected entry: When the pteranodon is in the bridge, it opens its beak to reveal teeth. 'Pteranodon Sternbergi' or 'Pteranodon Ingens' had no teeth.

Correction: Since the researchers added various DNA to the creatures, it is not unreasonable to think that it ended up with teeth.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the boy, Eric and Dr. Grant get reunited at the large fence, over Tea Leoni's shoulder you can see something moving. At first I thought it was the Spinosaurus but the Spinosaurus comes from the opposite direction. After reviewing it a couple of times on VHS it appears to be a truck driving by.

Correction: There is no truck, it is just Billy's body swaying back and forth.

Corrected entry: After the Spinosaurus kills the T-Rex, we see an ascending angle from the T-Rex's lifeless head up to the triumphant Spino. However, that is the ONLY part of the T-Rex there. There is no body connected to it, it's just a head lying on the ground. (00:27:25)

Correction: It only appears to be just a head because the rest of the body is just out of frame.

Corrected entry: The very first scene of the movie is a plane flying by. The next shot is a guy looking at it with binoculars, and we see the reflection of the plane is right-side-up. Binoculars reflect things up-side-down. (00:01:00)

Correction: Binoculars are made of a series of convex lens. The front lenses are the larger pair of convex lenses. A convex lens reflects objects the correct way up. It is concave lenses that reflect things up-side-down.


Corrected entry: The velociraptor resonating chamber that Billy shows Dr. Grant is actually a dog's resonating chamber. (00:12:10)

Correction: The machine used to fabricate the resonating chamber of the Velociraptor is completely fictitious. No-one really knows what the resonating chamber would look like. Therefore, who is to say that the resonating chamber of a dog and Velociraptor are not similar? Seeing how both animals are capable of making loud barking and squawking noises, it makes sense that they could be similar in shape and size.


Corrected entry: When the Spinosaurus is chasing the characters on the boat, it emerges from the river. The Spinosaurus was supposed to be 18 feet high and it was completely underwater. Then when it attacks the boat, the Spino stands up and the river is only about 3-5 feet deep. Don't tell me the river was that much shallower a little bit further away.

Correction: That is possible, believe it or not. In some rivers, there are points where it is really shallow, then there is a vertical drop off and it's really deep. The Spino could be swimming in the deep part, then stood up in the shallow end.

Corrected entry: Spinosaurus was supposed to have straight teeth, yet in the plane sequence when there is a close up of the Spino grabbing Nash's leg, his teeth are curved back.

Correction: The fossilized teeth of a real Spinosaurus may indeed be straight, but the dinosaurs in the film have been created through research and DNA gene-splicing. Between the supercomputers, Dr. Wu and the research team at International Genetics Technologies they manage to replicate dinosaur DNA. However, they still are not precisely the same as the originals.

Super Grover Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scenes where they are flying over the herd, to the left of the screen you can see tracks made by continuous driving of vehicles. There was no recent vehicle traffic on the island so it should have regrown by now. (00:18:35)

Correction: The tracks could also be animal tracks. Herds of animals could still be using the tracks made previously by vehicles.

Corrected entry: How did the pteranodons survive without lysine? According to Sarah's theory in the second film, the herbivores ate lysine rich plants and the carnivores ate the herbivores. However the pteranodons were in an enclosure so they could not get out to the herbivores and the herbivores could not get in to them. And the fish in the river did not carry lysine. (01:02:10 - 01:07:35)

Correction: Yes, they did. In fact lysine was a rubbish choice for a control device as it is very common in our diet. Foods rich in lysine include beef, turkey, cheese, vegetables, fruits, beans, mung bean sprouts, brewer's yeast, legumes, chicken, lamb... and fish.

Corrected entry: Amanda, Ben, and Eric were vacationing on the Costa Rican mainland, which, according to maps by JP experts, is 200+ miles away from Isla Sorna. So how is it possible that the speedboat in the first scene was able to make the trip by midday?

Correction: Without being too presumptuous, they could have left early.

Corrected entry: All of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park III are radically different than the ones in the previous movies, most notably the Velociraptors, who have gone from being grayish brown to having wild color patterns of blue, red, green black and white, as well as having grown mohawks of feathers on their heads. It couldn't be evolution.

Correction: This takes place on a different island, as Eric (I believe, the younger guy) says once they crash. As we saw in the labs, the people weren't just breeding and hatching dinosaurs. They were playing god. The fetuses were in special fluid containers, so they could be "edited". Who's to say one of the scientists didn't colorize them and add feathers?

Corrected entry: In the scenes with the pteranodons, they actually lift up beating their wings. In reality, these dinosaurs are designed to float with the wind, having very small and fragile bones on their wings which do not allow them to beat them. As a matter of fact, to lift from the ground, they extended their wings and hoped that the wind itself would be strong enough to carry them, thus making it impossible for them to lift from the bridge in the giant birdcage or to beat their wings next to the plane.

Correction: All the bones in all modern flying birds are small and fragile when compared to the bones of non-flying creatures. Birds manage to beat their wings quite vigorously without damaging the bone structure so it's possible a pteradon could/would too. As no one has ever seen a live pteradon taking flight, the statement "they extended their wings and hoped that the wind itself would be strong enough to carry them," is mere speculation and as such can't really be called a mistake.

Corrected entry: Spinosaurus wasn't actually as deadly in real life as it was in the film. It is believed that its diet may have only been fish, and according to Dinosaur A to Z by Don Lesser, the spinosaurus' size was greatly exaggerated in the movie to make him seem deadlier.

Correction: Actually, this was done deliberately by InGen (Hammond's dino-making company.) Grant tells us this himself: Eric says, "I didn't think they came that big." Grant replies, "They don't." InGen had been messing with the dino's DNA.

Corrected entry: When they are trying to take off from the island, the run into the dinosaur and blood spatters on the glass. When they crash, the glass gets shattered. You can see that there is no blood on the glass anymore.

Correction: The blood is clearly seen running off the windscreen of the plane while the plane was still travelling (at a high speed) through the air. Just like water running off your windscreen of your car.


Corrected entry: Does Eric have hair clippers? He was on the island for 6 weeks or 8 weeks and his hair is the exact same length. Also, throughout the movie every single man remains clean-shaven.

Correction: He could have found some scissors from the island, considering all the other stuff he found. As for the men, they could have had some razor blades in their backpacks.

Corrected entry: In the end of the Lost World it shows a pteranodon land on a branch and look at the camera but then in Jurassic Park III they are all in cages. How does that work?

Correction: The island in this film was meant to be "the factory floor" where all the dinosaurs are produced and then shipped to the other island once they reach a certain age or if they're needed. The bird cage would have been built to stop an Ingen product from flying away until it was needed on the other island (where it would probably be put in another cage). Now if the people where told to leave the island (judging by what was left they did so in a bit of a hurry) they probably figured the dinos they were working on at the time wouldn't survive and left them to it and when people started to get killed on the island someone stepped in and made sure the pteranodons where locked in the cage before declaring the island off limits.

Corrected entry: The parachute is in very good condition for one that had a man eaten on it. Not even a snapped string...

Correction: That's because the way it was eaten shows it was eaten by bacteria during decompisition. A dinosaur didn't eat it.

Corrected entry: In the scene after they have escaped from the Spinosaurus, Dr. Grant discovers that Billy stole some eggs. When Dr. Grant wants to throw the eggs out the window you can see in the background that the weather is great and there is no "birdcage" to be seen. But when they go down the stairs they are suddenly in the "birdcage" where it is very foggy. (00:55:52)

Correction: That's because the "birdcage" is behind them; you can't see it in that shot.

Corrected entry: As with Tea Leoni, Eric's cut on his cheek also changes shape, from being angled to mostly straight. And I also wonder how Ben died in the parachute harness when he seemed okay upon landing in the tree.

Correction: Your first entry is correct, but for Ben how he died was a dinosaur probably came up and attacked and killed him before he was able to get out, and eric wasn't because we saw earlier in the movie that eric was already off the parachute thing.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Spinosaurus is chasing Grant and the boy along the giant fence, Grant and the boy think they have escaped by cutting through a small hole in the fence. This fence is actually a double fence, the first part appears to be made from two in steel cables and forms a mesh fence. The second part of the fence appears to be made from 10-12 inch steel tubing. After Grant and the boy escape through the hole the Spinosaurus back up, charges the fence and crashes through with ease. Grant and the rest of the survivors then dash into a nearby building and slam the door. They then lock the door with 3 sliding dead bolts about 2 inches thick. When the Spinosaurus pushes against the door, it's unable to break through the 2 inch deadbolts.

Correction: When it breaks through the fence, it can get the whole weight of its body behind it. If you look you can see it almost hits it with its shoulder in order to break it down. When it comes to the door, because of its low height it can only use its legs or possibly its head. Therefore it cannot put nearly as much force behind its hit on the door. We also have to consider the possibility that it broke bones or something when it smashed through the fence, so might not be up to the task.

David Mercier

Corrected entry: In the fight between the Tyrannosaurus and Spinosaurus, the Tyrannosaurus grabs the Spinosaur by the neck with its jaws. Now, Tyrannosaur's jaws had enough muscle power to crush bone. That bite would've killed the spinosaurus. On the other side, the Spinosaur has very weak jaws for a large carnivore-it couldn't have killed the Tyrannosaur.

Correction: These aren't true dinosaurs, they've been engineered to be how In-gen wants them (to a degree). In the first Jurassic Park book theres a passage where Hammond and Dr. Wu have a arguement about the Raptors and their intelligence (should they leave them as they are or change it so they're easier to manage).

Corrected entry: In the opening scene when they are flying over the island, Ben looks down at the boat crew and finds that they have disappeared. He has a camera in his right hand. He tells the kid not to worry. He puts his hand behind his back for a split second and voila- his camera is gone. He had no time to put attach it to his backpack. In a later scene, we find that Ben has been holding onto the camera the whole time. That's odd because it disappeared earlier.

Correction: The camera is actually on a string or band and you can see it swinging just behind his back, after he lets go. The reason we later see footage of the kid saying "The camera's still on" is because Ben didn't stop recording after he let go of the camera.

Corrected entry: Grant was exposed to tear gas when Eric saved him...he didn't inhale much but he would still be coughing so violently that he wouldn't be able to speak coherently or eat without problem for quite a few hours at least.

Correction: That was a smoke grenade, not a tear gas canister.


Corrected entry: At the beginning when they lift off in the hanglider you can see that there are numbers on the top of the hanglider. I couldn't see these when they were in the air.

star wars freak

Correction: The lettering is on the underside of the parawing, not on the top, so you can only see it when it's viewed from below.


Corrected entry: When the crew finds the video camera and then realize it is out of battery power, the remaining pilot says, 'I have an idea.' He then begins to unscrew the flashlight, presumably to put those batteries into the video camera. One problem: the video camera on hand doesn't take the kind of batteries found in the flashlight.

Correction: If you actually watch the rest of the scene you can plainly see two yellow wires connected from the flashlight to the camera.

Corrected entry: How did that guy in the parachute die? We know they were both alive when they landed, because they filmed it. The boy gets down, the camera gets turned off just before the other guy is about to climb down, then...what?

Correction: It is possible for the velociraptors to attack Ben right after he turns off the camera, and before he was able to get down.

Then wouldn't Eric be attacked too?

No, Eric might have left to try and find something to get Ben down. He might not have even been in ear shot to hear screams.

Corrected entry: The raptors in this film have evolved, allowing the males to have quills on their necks. That's fine and dandy, but when Grant is having his dream scene on the plane, and sees the raptor sitting next to him, it has the quills. Shouldn't it have looked like the ones he saw in the original Jurassic Park? He wouldn't have known about the quills.

Correction: Dinosaurs were related to birds, and many species (including the raptors) may have had feathers (the "quills" that seen on the male raptors). Although the raptors in the first movie lacked feathers (either as a mistake, or perhaps its a gender-based thing), if you assume Dr. Grant continued studying raptors after the first incident, he may have learned that the species had feathers and adjusted his dream accordingly.

Corrected entry: How is it that Billy manages to beat the whole group in getting to the shore when they left him a good 12 hour boat trip away? I'm sure the navy didn't venture into the pteranodon cage to get him and then go back out to the shore.

Correction: After the characters escape the bird cage you see the deadbolt thing open. This is the way of foreshadowing that Billy escaped because it shows that he opened the lock. He beat everyone to the beach because they had to stop in the fight with the spino and were delayed by the egg-giving-up ceremony.

But he was badly injured; how could he have moved that quickly?

Correction: You see Billy went down a waterfall. What is more likely is that InGen tapped into a water system to fill the area for fish. This could make 2 exits. The one Billy gets carried down (as all rivers lead to the ocean) and the one Grant swims down. As the military doesn't know where to look and a foot search is out of the question, the military likely went up the rivers and found Billy, who could have told them to check the other side, which is why there is military so close to where Grant and the others show up.

Corrected entry: Why did they let those Pteranodons fly safely away in the end? They were already shown to be lethal animals, and now they're allowed to spread elsewhere.

Correction: They didn't "let" them fly away, they just had no means to stop them. They escaped when one of the characters left the gate to their huge cage unlatched.

Corrected entry: The boy in the film had collected urine from a T-rex to keep raptors away. There's a problem with that: dinosaurs were reptiles and were related to birds. Birds and reptiles do not urinate like mammals; they excrete uric acid together with their faeces through a single excretory opening called a cloaca.

Correction: There's a lot of assumptions there. We can't be sure whether or not dinosaurs urinated, it seems unwise to assume they did not merely because modern reptiles and birds don't.

J I Cohen

Corrected entry: When the Navy picks up the survivors, the person on the radio says that they have 6 souls on board. They only picked up 5 people.

Correction: The 5 he picked up and including himself

Corrected entry: Do you remember that annoying cell phone? Well, it's supposed to be owned by Paul Kirby. Then why is it that Udesky has one JUST like that one with the SAME annoying song in the part when they are testing the weapons?

Correction: Mr. Kirby probably gave Udesky the satelite phone as a means of contacting him before they set out for the island.

Corrected entry: After the plane crash and Spinosaurus attack, the survivors return to the wreck site to collect belongings/valuables, etc. Amanda starts talking to Paul about him losing weight over swimming. She says 'I hate swimming. I dont even know how to swim.' However, at the end of the film when they are in the 'bird cage,' they all fall in the river and Amanda is swimming without aid.

Correction: What Amanda says to Paul is "You hate swimming. You don't even know how to swim."

Correction: When they're changing clothes (right after revealing the truth about their son to Dr. Grant), she says to Paul, "You don't even know how to swim," and he replies, "I learned."

Corrected entry: At the beginning we see the crew of the speed boat pass through fog, when they come out the speedboat is in tatters and the crew are dead. But what killed them? They were too far out at sea, and the Pteranodons were locked in their cage.

Correction: The Spinosaurus killed them. It can swim discretely, which we see later in the movie, and it must have snuck up on them and eaten them. It had enough time to get to the center of the island by the time Dr. Grant and the rest arrive.

Corrected entry: When Eric is dropped from the Pteranodon into its nest, we see that the nest and the adjacent rocks are littered with human bones and skulls. It's quite unlikely anyone has been there until now, so where did those human bones come from?

Correction: There has quite been a significant amount of human activity on the island - shown by the buildings and vehicles (trucks/boats) which appear throughout the film. Presumably some of the humans who built these structures could have been eaten by the pteranodons.

Corrected entry: When in the operations complex, there is no activity which would indicate power. In the previous movie however, Van Owen had to turn on the power to send a signal to InGen, and no-one was around to turn it off. Ludlow's team couldn't have turned it off as they weren't near the building. It wouldn't have run out - it was geothermal.

Correction: The building in Jurassic Park 3 was the Embryonics Labratory, the building in Jurassic Park: The Lost World was the Communications Center, two different buildings.

Corrected entry: How could the pteranodons survive in their enclosed cage for all the time since the park closed and Site B was abandoned? If they couldn't get out, then what did they eat?

Correction: There's a river running through it - they feed on fish.

Dr. Alan Grant: What John Hammond and InGen did at Jurassic Park is create genetically engineered theme park monsters. Nothing more and nothing less.
Woman: Um, are you saying that you wouldn't wanna get onto Isla Sarnoa and study them if you had the chance?
Dr. Grant: No force on Earth or Heaven will get me on that island.



After the aeroplane crashed, a dinosaur stepped over it and the windows shattered making the typical sound of made-of-glass things when broken. They are made of plexiglass (a sort of fibrous plastic).



Dr. Grant's brown truck with the Museum of the Rockies and Montana State University logos on it is the actual vehicle that belongs to Dr. Jack Horner, paleontologist consultant on the Jurassic Park films as well as the man that the character of Grant is based on.
