  • There's a Logical (and Thorough) Reason That the Triceratops Was Sick on Random Things You Didn't Know About the Jurassic Park Franchise

    (#15) There's a Logical (and Thorough) Reason That the Triceratops Was Sick

    The guests' encounter with the sick Triceratops ends without any clear explanation as to why the animal is sick. Michael Crichton's original novel and the screenplay, however, includes an explanation: the Triceratops lacked suitable teeth for grinding food and so, like birds, would swallow rocks and use them as gizzard stones. In the digestive tract, these rocks would grind the food to aid in digestion. After six weeks, the rocks would become too smooth to be useful, and the animal would regurgitate them. When finding and eating new rocks to use, the animal would also swallow West Indian Lilac berries. The fact that the berries and stones are regurgitated explains why Dr. Ellie Sattler never finds traces of them in the animal's excrement.

  • Jurassic Park Became the Permenant Perception of What Many Dinosaurs Looked Like, Even If It Was Wrong on Random Things You Didn't Know About the Jurassic Park Franchise

    (#20) Jurassic Park Became the Permenant Perception of What Many Dinosaurs Looked Like, Even If It Was Wrong

    The Dilophosaurus's venom-spitting and neck-frill became so iconic that almost every other appearance of the animal in popular media, as well as most of the Dilophosaurus children's toys advertise at least one or both of these aspects. Some even leave out the dinosaur's striking double-crests. In reality, however, the spitting ability was made up by Michael Crichton, while adding the frill was Spielberg's idea. Real Dilophosaurus possessed neither of these traits, with the twin crests and its thin jaws (the latter of which isn't very evident in the movie's design) being its real discerning features.

    To cast Hammond's granddaughter, Lex, Spielberg auditioned a number of girls and asked them to record their screams.

    (#12) Spielberg Gave Out Raptors as Wrap Gifts

    All of the cast members were given a raptor model signed by Steven Spielberg as a gift once the film had wrapped.
