Random Facts About How Wrong Jurassic Park Is About Dinosaurs

    The Time Periods Were Kinda Messed Up...To The Tune Of Millions Of Years

    The Time Periods Were Kinda Messed Up...To The Tune Of Millions Of Years

    [ranking: 9]
    Among the most basic things any of the Jurassic movies could accurately portray would be dinosaurs from the correct time periods. But alas, such dedication to the facts would screw up the producers' storyboard. Stegosaurus and Triceratops, for example, never lived in the same time period; the Triceratops lived around 65 million years ago during the Cretaceous period, while the Stegosaurus lived around 150 million years ago (which was actually in the Jurassic period, so points for that).
    Particularly interesting, and neglected in the movies, is that the Stegosaurus - despite being 30 feet long - would have had a bite weaker than yours. It actually used its cheeks to store food, like a very, very, very big, armored hamster. 
    Clearly, the difference between 65 million years and 150 million years is a solid 85 million years, so these two massive beats would have never crossed paths. 

    Spielberg Basically Created An Entirely New Dinosaur With The Velociraptors

    Spielberg Basically Created An Entirely New Dinosaur With The Velociraptors

    [ranking: 1]
    The velociraptor stands as possibly the most famous dinosaur in the Jurassic Park franchise. From terrorizing kids in the classic kitchen scene to becoming Chris Pratt's BFF's in Jurassic World, the raptors go through enough character developments that some executive probably proposed a raptor spin-off called Jurassic Park: Enter the Dino.
    Sadly, pretty much all of Spielberg's ideas about the raptor hold little to no scientific ground. Velociraptors grew to be about the size of a turkey, weighing in around 30 pounds. Continuing with the avian themes, the raptors should appear to be more bird-like and sport some feathers. And though they ate meat, they were not ferocious killers. At 30 pounds and the size of a turkey, the raptor would not live up to the agility they display in the films. Their top speed likely clocked in around 40 miles per hour - still fast, but not fast enough to be racing alongside Chris Pratt and his motorcycle.

    If you ever go digging for fossils, expect it to go far differently than what you see in Jurassic Park. Despite what the film depicts, dinosaur skeletons aren't waiting to be unearthed in plain sight. The sonic technology used in Jurassic Park won't help you much, as it's more inaccurate than the film makes out to to be.
    The reality is that digging up fossils today is much like it was back in the 1800s: a bunch of people carefully dig and cross their fingers that they find something. That's it. Not very glamorous. There certainly aren't any hammers and chisels involved in removing incredibly fragile fossils, even if Dr. Alan Grant says there are. 

    So What Does 'Jurassic Park' Get Right?

    So What Does 'Jurassic Park' Get Right?

    Before this list turns you against Jurassic Park, be sure to give credit where credit is due. For all their errors, the movies got a few things right. For one, the dinosaur eggs shown in the movies resemble eggs discovered by actual paleontologists. The cannibalism depicted in the movies is also accurate; thanks to fossil records, experts know dinosaurs of the same species fought with and killed each other. Though people will probably never know if dinosaurs talked to each other, it's likely that they did. Considering that birds are dinosaurs' closest living relatives, one can hazard a guess that dinos, like birds, lived as vocal creatures.
    Furthermore, experts do want to use genetics to potentially create new dinosaurs, but instead of using preserved DNA, they want to manipulate the genes of the dinosaur's ancestors like chickens to create a "chickenosaurus." Sounds like a great idea.

    Brachiosaurs Didn't Sneeze

    Brachiaosaurs do not stand up on their back legs like a dog begging for a treat. As adorable as this scene looks, the top-heavy dino would likely topple over if it tried. These huge dinosaurs (to the tune of 62 tons and at least 82 feet long) would never climb hills, let alone stand up to eat. When you stand as tall as a four-story building, you don't need to stand on your hind legs.
    Also, let's talk about the sneezing for a sec. Sauropods probably did not sneeze, as the pressure could make their heads explode after it traveled up that four-story neck. Definitely a sad thought, but maybe one worth incorporating into the next film.

    All The Dinos Are Missing A Key Feature: Feathers

    All The Dinos Are Missing A Key Feature: Feathers

    [ranking: 6]
    A noticeable problem in all of the Jurassic movies would be that none of the dinosaurs are shown with feathers. Recent evidence excavated in Siberia suggests all dinosaurs, not just some, sported feathers. A two-legged dinosaur fossil dating back to 160 million years ago in the Jurassic period indicates that feathers existed in more than just avian-like/winged dinosaurs; it's more likely that feathers existed much longer than previously thought. The fossils turned up in what used to be a lake bed; ash from volcanic eruptions preserved their skeletons as well as their feathers.
    To be fair, the Siberian fossil turned up two decades after the first film, so this gaffe can slide a little bit.

Another day, another lie from Hollywood. Inaccuracies in the Jurassic Park movies abound, and the biggest scientific errors glare at you with the intensity of a T.rex staring down two kids trapped in a car. As crazy as it sounds, Steven Spielberg never tackled the film with the intent a National Geographic-worthy film. From the original movies and pre-glam Laura Dern to Bryce Dallas Howard running from a dinosaur in heels (seriously, when will women in movies wear reasonable shoes?), the popular film saga takes plenty of artistic liberties when it comes to even the simplest dinosaur facts. The biggest scientific errors in Jurassic Park sound surprising, until you recall most sci-fi movies employ bad science.

The Jurassic Park series plays the same game, adding traits to dinosaurs that range from bada** (venom spitting) to bizarre (sneezing). But inaccuracies in these films include more than just what Jurassic Park gets wrong about dinosaurs; their "rules" on fossils and genetics unravel faster than strands of DNA encased in amber (yep, even the insects lied in this film). But don't let the Jurassic Park movies's sci-fi lies get you down. The world will always have Chris Pratt's abs... unless those were CGI, too.
