    Number 6: Dinosaurs didn't die from a meteor. They died from COVID 1 😆

    A dinosaur's vision is as much based on motion as ours is. If a creature was well-camouflaged against its background and not moving you could be looking right at it and still not see--but when it moved you would see it immediately. So if it moved and then stopped moving and you were still looking at it you'd still be able to see it, so T-Rex would still be able to see and eat your ass if you stopped moving...

    Uhm okay I'm going to go through everything she has said. 1. No feathers or bright colours. Has she seen tlw, jp3, jw 2. Aggression. The rexs hunted the humans in tlw because of the baby insodent and for them entering the rex territory and you can say the same about the raptors. The only one that continues to hunt humans was the spino amd now we have a Canon reason why. 3.as for muscularity, yes most creatures in the jp franchise are more muscular but are you forgetting the chunky herbs like the trike and sino in jw/jwfk 4. Dinos living in the jurassic. Where in the almighty hell did she find that the dinos in the jp franchise all lived in the jurassic because apart from the name of the movie its nowhere 5.dinosaurs were the first returns to roam the planet. Uhm same argument as above

    Actually mammals lived along side dinosaurs for the most part.

    I’ve always thought that T. rex and similar raptors look more like hopping animals- such as kangaroos

    Did she even watch the entire film franchise? Dinosaurs were big and scary? They depicted "nice" dinos in the 2nd film 🙄 😂 the 3rd film has velociraptors with plumage on their heads. So they didn't get every single thing right. I'd like to see her try making a movie about something with relatively new knowledge (at the time) 😂

    Best part of the movie was when they said " don't worry, it's a veggie saurus". We all know African bull elephants like to eat plants and have their neck rubbed.

    Maybe stop taking JP as real?? Its made dinos not original ones. The dna is not original but with frog dna so ofc they look different and all is different 🤦‍♀️ or did you ever see a frog with feathers tho??

    i love how people say "facts" about a creature that has been gone for millions or years as if they can see them in person, they havent found colorful skin or any of that to back the color thing and feathers were found with very very very few fossils and not enough to say all or most dinos were feathered, we have large reptiles today and they dont have feathers and they are greens browns grays and blacks, yes some are colorful but most are not
