A Peek At Jurassic World’s Genetically Modified Dinosaur
This is the first peek (if you can call a silhouette a peek) at Indominus Rex, the genetically modified killer dinosaur the scientists in Jurassic World decided it would be a good idea to play God and create. *shaking fist* You fools! Just kidding, I’d still hit it.
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed.
Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db–the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.
Obviously, Chris Pratt will have to come along and save the day and melt my heart all over again and I will buy a poster of him and hang it above my bunk bed and if they don’t sell posters then I’ll make my own in Photoshop and we’ll live happily ever after, the end.
Keep going for a shot of its enclosure and a closeup of its snout.
Thanks to Jennifer, who tried to tell me dinosaurs had hair. That’s cool, I like a little peach fuzz.
