Bumpy the Ankylosaurus has remained on Isla Nublar at the end of season 3 of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Due to this, there are four possible fates for her between Camp Cretaceous and Fallen Kingdom. First, she may have been attacked and killed by a carnivore on the island. Second, she may have been among the dinosaurs that died on the island when Mount Sibo erupted. Third, she may be one of the dinosaurs that were auctioned off at the Lockwood Manor. Fourth, she may have been one of the dinosaurs that escaped into the wild on the mainland. I wonder if we will learn of her final fate in either Dominion or future seasons of Camp Cretaceous.
There was a leaked photo of a new dinosaur hybrid that will appear in season 4 of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. This one is visibly different from the Indominus Rex, Scorpius Rex, and Indoraptor. Not only is it far cuter, but it is clearly a herbivore. At first glance, this creature looks like a mix between a Sinoceratops and a Spinosaurus. It is clearly a baby, which implies it could be a companion dinosaur that will replace Bumpy the Ankylosaurus. We have seen what carnivorous hybrids are like. Now, it is time to see a herbivorous hybrid.
I must say that I was thrilled to see Quetzalcoatlus in the prehistoric prologue of Jurassic World: Dominion. I also liked how they were compared to the Pteranodons in terms of size. It was like watching a flock of sparrows flying away from an approaching eagle. Quetzalcoatlus has always been my all-time favorite pterosaur and seeing it on the big screen was such a treat. I often wondered how much more chaotic Jurassic World would have been if Quetzalcoatlus was among the pterosaurs that escaped the aviary. Can you imagine creatures as tall as giraffes with forty foot wingspans and ice pick-like faces rampaging through Jurassic World’s main street?
I must say that I was super excited to see the Giganotosaurus in the prologue for Jurassic World: Dominion. I have been a fan of Giganotosaurus since it was first discovered in the 1990s. Despite being a predator that rivals Tyrannosaurus Rex in terms of size, Giganotosaurus has never appeared in a movie before until now. I like how the Jurassic World: Dominion version of Giganotosaurus resembles the Indominus Rex. The reason for this is because the Indominus Rex has Giganotosaurus DNA in its genetic makeup. Also, this version of Giganotosaurus resembles the Allosaurus in Battle of Big Rock, which makes sense since both dinosaurs are carnosaurs and are related. Overall, I hope we get to see a cloned version of the Giganotosaurus in Jurassic World: Dominion. Since its DNA was used to create the Indominus Rex, it would make sense that they would use it to make a true clone of the animal.
In the prologue of Jurassic World: Dominion, we watched as Rexy is chased by a helicopter before rampaging through a drive-thru movie theater. I noticed something different about Rexy’s behavior in this scene. She was not hunting or fighting or being territorial like she usually is. Instead, Rexy was scared and confused, which is normal when a wild animal ventures into an unfamiliar environment. She was born and raised in the laboratories of Isla Sorna and spent the majority of her life in the jungles of Isla Nublar. When she was released onto the mainland, she was seeing all of this for the first time in her life. She was being exposed to sights, sounds, and smells she never experienced before. It must be beyond overwhelming for her. We have gotten used to seeing Rexy as the powerful and regal Queen of the Dinosaurs, but here she is lost, alone, and trying to figure out her new place in the modern world.
My favorite part of the prologue for Jurassic World: Dominion is the section that takes place in the Cretaceous Period. In that part of the prologue, we got to see the original versions of the dinosaurs in their natural habitat. It felt like something out of Walking With Dinosaurs. The makers of the Jurassic Park/World franchise did say that they plan to take the franchise in other directions after Dominion. I hope one of those directions will involve a film that is like the prehistoric section of the prologue. That would be cool beyond measure to see a full length film that features the dinosaurs in this fashion.

I heard an intriguing rumor regarding the upcoming fourth season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. It has been implied that we have not seen the last of the Scorpius Rex. I think somehow whoever is controlling the new island got their hands on one. I don’t know if this Scorpius Rex is the mystery dinosaur that is stowing away in the kids’ boat, another of the Scorpius Rex’s offspring that was captured by Mantah Corp offscreen, or a clone that was grown from a sample that one of the drones got from one of the Scorpius Rexes. Either way, I hope this rumor is true because the Scorpius Rex is such a fascinating and terrifying creature and I want to see more of it.
The wait is finally over! The Kindle ebook and paperback editions for my dinosaur book, The Kaligen Experiment: Genesis, is now available on Amazon. Enjoy!
“Dr. Edgar Crews was a young autistic prodigy who wanted to change the world. He gets his chance when he participates in the most ambitious and elaborate ecological experiment in the history of mankind. Edgar’s contribution results in the creation of a new breed of dinosaurs unlike any the planet has ever seen. For a decade, the experiment goes swimmingly until it is sabotaged by a group of extremists. Now, Edgar and his research team must escape from the very primeval ecosystem they created. Along the way, they encounter evolutionary mutations no one has ever dreamed of. Follow a band of survivors as they endure the hike from hell!”
We have some news regarding the fourth season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Through the teaser, we learned that it will start in early December and will take place on a new island. In legitimate website that was connected to Universal Studios, it was confirmed that the new island is going to be Isla Sorna AKA Site B! This is an exciting development because the fate of Site B has been shrouded in mystery in the Jurassic World universe. Fallen Kingdom openly said that Isla Nublar was the home of the last dinosaurs on Earth, but never mentioned what happened to Isla Sorna. Now, it looks like we are about to find out what became of Site B.
I found this video that talks about a fictional project that depicts what a responsibly run dinosaur theme park might look like. The project is called Prehistorica and it essentially depicts what Jurassic Park could have been if it never failed.
