5 Dinosaur Facts Scientists Discovered Since Jurassic Park Came Out

Jurassic Park logo

Believe it or not, it’s been almost twenty five years since the original Jurassic Park came out. Lots of things have changed since then — and not just the color of Steven Spielberg’s hair. But who would have thought that our understanding of creatures that existed 65 million years ago would be one of them? Not us. Read on to increase your knowledge of all things dino — and check out some of our favorite Jurassic Park merch!

Sauroniops Pachytholus

1. The existence of a previously unknown type of dinosaur called Sauroniops Pachytholus (yes, the name is a reference to Lord of the Rings, for all you Bilbo Baggins fans out there). You’d think a dinosaur the size of T-rex would be pretty hard to hide, but apparently not, since scientists were not aware of the Sauroniops Pachytholus until almost a decade after Jurassic Park came out. Too bad, because it would’ve been a pretty cool addition to the movie! (Hint hint, for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.)

Dinosaur with Feathers

2. Some dinosaurs had (primitive versions of) feathers. This had been speculated well before everyone’s favorite dino film came out, but it wasn’t until the late 90’s that conclusive proof of the first dinosaur with feathers was unearthed. (That dinosaur type is Sinosauropteryx, in case you need a name for your next pet.)

3. Dinosaurs were even taller than we thought. The idea of coming across a giant T-Rex already sounded daunting (or maybe just exciting, if you’re Ross from Friends). But six years after Jurassic Park came out, scientists discovered a type of dinosaur (Sauroposeidon) that was 59 feet tall! Good luck winning a limbo contest with that (although glowering at the judges from almost 60 feet up could very well get you that trophy).

4. There was a dinosaur that looked like a duck. If this sounds like your dream (or nightmare) Pokemon, you’re not alone. The Halszkaraptor apparently had a semiaquatic lifestyle, but could walk on land as need be (kind of like Michael Phelps). Word is still out on whether or not they quacked, but we’ll let our imagination say yes.

5. Some dinosaurs may have sparkled/glittered. This sounds like a Tumblr post waiting to happen, so we’ll consider this dinosaur, known as Caihong juji, to be a prehistoric hipster. Scientists think the glittering effect, which may have served as a social cue to other dinosaurs, likely resembled the look of modern hummingbirds. We’re not sure if we’d be as happy to see a dinosaur flying through our garden, though — especially not after seeing what happens in, you guessed it, Jurassic Park.

If this list made you reminisce about the first time you saw Jurassic Park, grab some popcorn and rent or buy the Paleolithic classic here!
