To finish this blog, here’s some facts about Jurassic Park and Dinosaurs:

  • Chip Kidd is behind that iconic logo.  The iconic logo on the poster was adapted from designer Chip Kidd’s T. rex skeleton drawing used for the original novel.
  • To create realistic dinosaurs, effects artists had to get into character.
  • The digital artists took videos of themselves acting like the Gallimimus herd for reference before they animated the stampede scene; it helped them create more realistic instinctive behavior.  Meanwhile, Stan Winston’s crew built raptor suits … and got into them
  • It took many different animals to create the T. Rex’s roar.
  • The sound design of the T. rex’s roar was reportedly a composite of tiger, alligator, and baby elephant sounds.  The deadly Dilophosaurus roar was created by combining howler monkeys, hawk screeches, rattlesnake hisses, and swan calls.

Dinosaurs are a group of reptiles that have lived on Earth for about 245 million years.

In 1842, the English naturalist Sir Richard Owen coined the term Dinosauria, derived from the Greek deinos, meaning “fearfully great,” and sauros, meaning “lizard.”

Dinosaur fossils have been found on all seven continents.

All non-avian dinosaurs went extinct about 66 million years ago.

There are roughly 700 known species of extinct dinosaurs.
