Indominus Rex Is ‘Jurassic World’s’ New Dinosaur
After a series of guesses and speculations, finally Universal Pictures unveiled the official name of the genetically modified dinosaur that will wreak some serious havoc in “Jurassic World” — the Indominus Rex. Read on to know more about the details of this scoop.
When Steven Spielberg created the first “Jurassic Park,” he opened up a new world of imagination to every film maker who wishes to explore the coexistence between dinosaur forms and humans. However, his film also did not forget to emphasize the repercussions of humans playing like God through technology and genetics. The T. Rex and raptors tormented each of the characters of the film, and the legendary helmsman depicted their monstrosity that way. But things are meant to evolve as director Colin Treverrow actualizes the theme park towards operation, and they cooked up a new dinosaur that is created by mankind — the Indominus Rex.
According to Screen Rant, “Jurassic World’s” official site has a special feature which details the profiles of each dinosaur that’s bred in the amusement park. It had the profiles of Tyrannosaurus rex, the stegosaurus and the new Indominus rex, which detailed it as “a carnivore with a very high aggression index.” The name basically means “fierce” or “untamable king,” and it stands in a gargantuan height of 40 feet. The detail even went as far as the monstrous creature having its teeth replaced constantly, which is actually a common trait among theropods and Shark kinds, alike.
A description on the site was even offered and it is as follows:
At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Gigantosaurus. Fearsome indeed.
