Jurassic Park III

Question: In the end, the Pterosaurs fly away from Isla Sorna for a new home. Where on Earth would they go and wouldn't they attack and kill any human or animal there?

Chosen answer: The island was located East of Costa Rica in the pacific so its likely they are headed for the Americas or Galapagos islands. They won't likely start hunting on animals and humans as they are thought to be fish eaters and thus would stay near the coast and avoid contact with land animals, especially predators. The reason they attack the humans in the bird cage is because of malnutrition and captivity related stress.

Question: When the boat is sinking and everyone is in the cage, what does Grant say to Ellie on the satellite phone and how does she know what it means and which island to go to out of the five?

Chosen answer: He says "The River, Site B". Obvisouly there is only one main river on Site B (the isalnd). Ellie was smart enough to figure it out.

Question: If there still are dinosaurs on this island, and they are a known threat, why does the government allow them to still live there? With the incident at San Diego, that should have been a harsh wake-up call to the government about the threats of the dinosaurs.

Chosen answer: The dinos have no way of leaving the island, so why would any government go and kill them all? A live tiger or lion would be dangerous if released in a city, but governments do not kill them all just in case.

Question: How did the principal characters end up on opposite sides of the metal fence after they initially escaped from the raptors?

Chosen answer: Alan Grant became separated from the others after escaping the raptors. He was later rescued by Eric, who then took him to his hideout. When they went looking for the Kirbys and Billy, they took a route that put them on the opposite side of the fence.

Question: How does Ben Hildebrand die? Only his skeleton is shown in while Billie removes the parasail. He would not have been killed and eaten by a dinosaur because his skeletal remains are still there, and he wouldn't have been strangulated as he was talking to Eric as per the video.

Chosen answer: While the movie doesn't explain this, it most certainly wasn't a dinosaur (since a carnivorous dinosaur would eat him). However, in Jurassic Park Adventures: Survivor, he dies from internal injuries due to the rough "landing".

Question: I have to question what killed the speedboat's crew at the beginning of the movie. I don't think the Pteradons would be that fast in attacking and they were locked in the cage. I doubt the Spinosaurus would go that far out to sea and kill the people that quickly. What other dino(s) could have done it out at sea and so fast (and were so messy eaters)?

Chosen answer: This passage isn't very satisfying. There certainly were a large number of predatory marine reptiles, but they would have difficulty with a speeding boat, and if they were out in the water, why would they stay just around the island? The Pterosaurs would have been visible, even if they were loose to attack. The Spinosaurus and other terrestrial dinosaurs might paddle across shallow water, but they're not going to grab people off a moving speedboat. Effective scene but hard to correlate to the local lifeforms.

Question: Why the heck does Eric keep Tyrannosaur urine in the truck?

Chosen answer: He keeps the T-Rex Urine with him, so he can repel off things like velociraptors, and other dangerous carnivores.

Question: When the survivors run into the T-Rex, it is eating a dinosaur. Does anyone know what species it was?

Chosen answer: According to the DVD commentary, the Tyrannosaurus is eating a Parasaurolophus.

Question: How did they clone pteranodons? Technically, they aren't dinosaurs. They are prehistoric birds.

blonddude207

Chosen answer: Irrelevant if they were birds or dinosaurs. Just the same as in the first movie, if a mosquito happened to have taken blood from one and been caught in amber, they can clone it.

Question: Dr. Grant asks Eric how he got T-Rex urine. Eric replies, "You don't want to know". How did Eric get the T-Rex urine anyway?

Chosen answer: It's never explained how he got it. Any explanation the filmmakers might give would probably be implausible.

Question: 2 questions about the T-rex urine. Why would the urine repel other dinosaurs? And what did he mean by "big one with a fin?"

Chosen answer: The T-Rex urine would have the scent of the large predator and this would keep other, smaller dinosaurs away for fear of being eaten. Although this is complete nonsense, that's what the movie is going for. The big one with the fin is the Spinosaurus, the gigantic dinosaur that is hunting the group.

Question: After the first Spinosaurus attack, the survivors run into a feeding T-Rex and he roars at them. Right after the team leaves, Alan says something under his breath. Does anyone know what he says?

Chosen answer: I watched this several times on DVD. After Grant says, "Nobody move a muscle," he turns his head to one side as the others run off. His next comment is inaudible, although it appears he's uttering an expletive. My guess is, "Oh sh**." It's also not on the DVD closed captions.

Question: When Grant finds out that Billy stole the velociraptor eggs, the room they are in has broken windows. Why is this?

Chosen answer: The Pteranadons broke them attacking the Site B crew before evacuation.

Mistakes

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).
