DINOSAUR EPILOGUE COMPLETE

I have finished the epilogue for the second volume of The Kaligen Experiment. It is going to be scary and unexpected. It will also foreshadow the biological calamity that is to come later in the series. I will need to reread some of the chapters to reacquaint myself with the story before I can move on. I will keep you updated on all developments.

DINOSAUR EPILOGUE

Before I continue the main story of the second volume of The Kaligen Experiment, I have skipped to the epilogue. The reason for this is because it is going to be a juicy foreshadowing of what is to come in future volumes. You think it’s over simply because you are off Kaligen Island? It’s not over. The games have just begun.

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.

DINOSAUR CANNIBALISM

Cannibalism is frequently seen as a major social taboo amongst humans. However, it is a completely different story in the animal kingdom. Even dinosaurs were not exempt from cannibalism. The most successful predators would take advantage of every situation that provides food even if it means feeding on their own kind. This weeds out the weak so that the strongest members of the species would continue to thrive. One of the earliest examples of dinosaur cannibalism is the apex predator of Cretaceous Madagascar: Majungasaurus. Majungasaurus was part of a group of dinosaurs known as Abelisaurids, which have a notorious reputation for cannibalism. Most of the carnivorous species of dinosaur in my book series, The Kaligen Experiment, practice cannibalism. In one of my dinosaur short stories, there will be a scene that revolves around a scenario that results in cannibalism.
