ALTERNATE MOSASAURUS SCENE

Here is more unused concept art for Jurassic World regarding the Mosasaurus Lagoon. It provides yet another example of what underwater tunnels would look like if they housed prehistoric sea monsters. Only one thing scarier than looking at a giant marine reptile through a few inches of acrylic is watching said creature while it is eating.

NEW PREHISTORIC CARNIVORE

I have awesome news! It looks like a new species of theropod dinosaur was recently discovered. It is a relative of Carcharodontosaurus and is as big as Tyrannosaurus Rex. The creature is called Meraxes Gigas, named after Meraxes, the dragon of Queen Rhaenys Targaryen from A Song of Ice and Fire. I love that paleontologists have used Game of Thrones as inspiration for naming this dinosaur especially if it was as ferocious as a dragon.

RETURN OF THE CAN

In the latest trailer for the fifth season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, we got a hint that the Barbasol can that Dennis Nedry used to smuggle embryos out of Jurassic Park has returned. I wonder how this will affect the franchise as a whole. Once Nedry took the embryos out of cryostorage, they only had 36 hours before they were useless to Biosyn. With this in mind, this may be a flashback of someone salvaging the can immediately after the events of Jurassic Park in 1993. Since Mantah Corp are the antagonists of Camp Cretaceous, I wonder if they were the ones who salvaged the can and used the DNA to create some of the dinosaurs on their private island. I hope we get answers when the new season comes out.

A PRIMEVAL CONTINENT

In addition to exotic plants and animals, prehistory was a time when ancient and giant landmasses existed. The most famous of these landmasses was the supercontinent Pangea before it broke up into the continents we know today. Other prehistoric landmasses were Laurasia and Gondwana. As The Kaligen Experiment progresses, I will depict the gradual rise of a new landmass that will be like Pangea, Laurasia, and Gondwana. The formation of this new landmass will be tied to the Pacific tectonic plate. Geology is a subject I have not touched on in a while so I will be brushing up on it in the future.
