This carnivore is both fast and dangerous, it killed one keeper at Isla Sorna when they relased a adult specimen inside its pen.

In your Jurassic Park series, does the Isla Sorna facility still works or they are cloning the Dinosaurs in a facility at Isla Nublar?

I have a question, why do you gave it, pronated hands? It doesn't have zombie hands in the site after all. Same for the Baryonyx and the Suchomimus.

Because i dont belive its gonna show up in the movie and if it does, it wont look that accurate like they do on the site. So i went for a more Jp-ish look.

In fact in the movies, theropods have human-like wrist...

Plus it could just be the Suchomimus, Baryonyx, and Metriacanthosaurus were supinating their wrists, but could easily pronate too. After all it's not the first time a JP theropod has supinated its wrists, for instance when Charlie the Velociraptor was circling around Chris Pratt, her wrists were supinated at that moment, but later pronated again.

I saw the name of this dinosaur in "Jurassic Park" but I've always wondered what they looked like and if they were herbivores or carnivores. Now I know.

In the movie, they misspell Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus, but they are able to spell Metriacanthosaurus correctly? . . . There's no way.
