George Lawala (CB-Topps)

A hunter-for-hire who was sent to Isla Nublar to capture a group of Velociraptors. he surprised Drs Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler by arriving on Isla Nublar via riding an underwater Jetski. He chases them through a cave system before being attacked by a mother Raptor. He kills it with his rifle, although it bites his leg while dying. Later, Lawala fights Alan and Ellie, ultimately capturing them, along with the five adolescent Raptors. He utilizes nets to tow them from the island via his Jetski. Onboard a cargo boat named the Agua Brooma, Lawala finds both Alan and Ellie and the Raptors trying to break out of their cages.

He knocks them all out with knock-out gas. Then at an un-named central american dock, he has them moved onto a cargo plane.Here, the Raptors escape and encircle Alan and Ellie’s cage; they leave when they realise that they cannot enter the cage (as Alan’s earlier attempt to pick the lock has jammed it) and Lawala, investigating the weight shift in the plane, is attacked by a Raptor, whose head he promptly shoots apart. Lawala then lets Alan and Ellie out and gives them guns so that the three can all search the plane.

Lawala kills another attacking Raptor with a shot to the chest, before the plane’s pilot, Brennan, appears; the pair are both attacked by a female Raptor (which shall later be named Celia), and although Lawala injures it, he and Brennan are both killed by her. His death later urges Robert Muldoon, his blood brother who he saved from an attacking lion in Africa, to take vengeance on him by capturing the Raptors, alive or dead.

Dr. Jeremiah Fischer (CB-Topps)

A scientist who assists the army in reorganising Jurassic Park; he plays Drs Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler into being dismissed from the island, before ultimately being dismissed himself. By this point, however, he has knowledge of the Park and of the missing Velociraptors, and is hired by Bill Steingarten, head of BioSyn, to find the Raptors and set up a new Jurassic Park. He hires Dr LaDonna Belvedere as head-keeper in turn for having the Raptors, and proceeds to set up walls around the Raptors. When Ian Malcolm and Ellie stumble upon his “park”, he prepares to kill them, but the escaped Raptors turn on him and his men and kill them.

Tranquilizer Guns (S/F)

A total of 3 tranquilizer guns were used in the 1997 InGen Incidents; Lindstradt, LAR Grizzly Big-Bore, and Dan-Inject JM Standard. Tranquilizer guns were also utilized on Isla Nublar‘s facilities as Muldoon used a tranquilizer to subdue the Triceratops.

The Lindstradt tranquilizer gun was a fictional gun made up by Micheal Crichton for use of his TLW novel, and it was then carried onto the movie adaptation of Steven Spielberg. The gun belonged to Eddy Carr, although he never fired it through the entire trip to Isla Sorna, and there were parts of Ian Malcolm holding it. The gun was also seen in the trailer attack, when the 2 T. rex approached Eddy’s car. Eddy was going to use it, but it got caught on a net, and Eddy took too much time, thus leading up to his demise.

The other tranquilizer gun was the LAR Grizzly Big-Bore. It was used by Roland Tembo to capture the T. rex before sending it to San Diego, and by Sarah Harding to sedate the T. rex back into it’s enclosure in the ship. Unlike the Lindstradt, this is an actual firearm, mocked up as a dart gun.

The last Tranquilizer gun had minimal significance in the InGen Harvest expedition and was barely seen. This tranquilizer gun was the Dan-Inject JM Standard. It was relatively small sized and was held by Dieter Stark during the round up.

Major General Bradford West (CB-Topps)

Head of the army in charge of reorganising Jurassic Park; he was highly unimpressed by both Drs Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, and Derrick and Abby (the latter especially). He thought highly of his men; ultimately, although he believes that he has proof of Abby trying to take photos of the dinosaurs (a camera is found in her room after she reported Bieber and Shandy had been taking photos), the man who had hired Bieber and Shandy to take photos phoned and West discovered the truth. At around the same time, he got into an argument with Alan about who had the final say on how to treat the dinosaurs.

John “Ray” Arnold (CB-Topps)

The main technician of Jurassic Park, “Ray” becomes trapped in the Visitor’s Center when Dennis Nedry turned off the fences and let the dinosaurs loose, along with John Hammond and Robert Muldoon. He is seen using a headset while at work at his desk. Ray shuts down the systems to reboot them. Unlike in the movie, Ray does not leave to attempt to reactivate the fences in the maintenance shed; this is presumably due to the shortening of the fourth comic in the adaptation. The character of John Arnold simply dissapears in the adaptation with no more mention of him.

Robert Muldoon (CB-Topps)

Some time before his appointment to Nublar, Robert Muldoon worked as a tracking guide in Africa. He encountered rival guides such as George Lawala and Sonya Durant. He and Lawala got into a disagreement which caused them to be rivals, but then after being saved by Lawala from an attacking Lion, causing him to regard Lawala as a blood brother.

Robert Muldoon was the game warden for Isla Nublar. He was in charge of a large security force and oversaw the dinosaur handlers. His main weapon of choice was a Spas-12 shotgun. He clashed with a scientist named Murillo over the safety of the dinosaurs. After the Tyrannosaur escapes from its paddock, it causes the Stegosaurs to stampede, causing the jeep with Muldoon and Murillo to overturn and the death of Murillo. Hunting down the escaped animals, he tranquilizes several until the Tyrannosaur steps on his jeep. However, he manages to escape with only a broken arm.

Muldoon was first encountered by the tour group when they witnessed a velociraptor being fed a cow and devouring it. Later, he accompanied Ellie as they went to check on the jeeps after the Tyrannosaurus attack. Retrieving Dr. Malcolm, they barely managed to escape after the T-rex noticed and gave chase. Muldoon accompanied Ellie as they went to search for the Maintenance shed.  Realizing they were outnumbered, he attempted to fend them off with his rocket launcher. He later Believed to be deceased after providing a distraction for the raptors while Ellie runs to get help.

However,  he returns and helps Dr. Malcolm track down Ellie and Grant in Columbia. His claim is that the velociraptor was just playing and he was able to escape. He joins the group in tracking down the velociraptors that have escaped from Isla Nublar.

As he tracked the raptors through the jungle, he slung his rifle over his back and utilized Binoculars to scout the area. Upon hearing that George Lala had been killed, he swore revenge on them, and this gave him a new, personal reason to track the raptors.

He assembled a team of Indians from the village to assist them, but did not trust them. Spotting the raptors across a suspension bridge, he attempted to shoot at them. However, the natives attacked him and the group, incapacitating him and leaving Alan to have to save Ellie from a raptor.

As they pursued, Muldoon utilized a helicopter in which to covertly pursue the raptors. Upon seeing a Gorilla in the brush, Muldoon set down to investigate, clearing the way with his machete. After Ellie was abducted by a raptor, Alan had to stop Muldoon from shooting for fear of hitting Ellie.

They were fired upon by a Biosyn Helicopter, which they all barely ducked. The chopper had been ordered to kill all of them. Standing in defiance of the helicopter, Muldoon shot it down, causing it to crash. Then as they were pursued by Biosyn employees on foot, Muldoon proceeded to stalk them. Catching them by surprise, he held one of the Biosyn employees at knifepoint and forced him to shoot his comrade. Then dropping the knife, he fought against him, killing him by snapping his neck.

Later, Muldoon would shoot an attacking Jaguar that had mauled Malcolm, killing it. As they continued, Muldoon would continue to engage Biosyn, shooting down yet another helicopter. Later, Muldoon would celebrate their survival in Caracas, with Muldoon noting that the raptors were now impossible to track down.

He is later called upon by Hammond to return to Isla Nublar to try to discern the secret of the ‘Green Flame’. Some time between the events of Return to Jurassic Park #4 and The Lost World: Jurassic Park Robert Muldoon dies again, possibly. This is the only way to explain this continuity oversight in the comics, aside from the fact the comics and the events in the comics are ignored by the film makers and this carrying over to The Lost World’s comic.

Timothy “Tim” Murphy (CB-Topps)

John Hammond’s grandson, Tim is dropped off on Isla Nublar with his older sister, Alexis (or “Lex”) for the weekend so that they can escape their parent’s divorce. Tim shows a fascination with Dr Alan Grant and his work, although Alan seems less enthusiastic about Tim. Tim discovers gastrolithes near the sick Triceratops that the visitors witness, which helps Dr Ellie Sattler solve the problem of why it is ill.

Later, when the tour vehicles are forced to stop outside the Tyrannosaurus paddock, Tim looks inside the paddock through night-vision goggles, to see that the goat placed within the paddock to feed the dinosaur is missing; the goat then lands on the vehicle roof. The Tyrannosaurus breaks out of its paddock, and Donald Gennaro leaves Tim and Lex in their tour vehicle, running away to hide. The children create enough ruckus for the dinosaur to notice them, and it attacks their vehicle; while Alan saves Lex, Tim remains stuck in the vehicle as the Rex pushes it (along with Alan and Lex) over the edge of its paddock.

Alan helps Tim out of the car; he states that he threw up. The three sleep in a tree for the night, and continue trekking through the paddock the next day. When they pass over the paddock fence, Ellie happens to reactivate it; as Tim is still on the fence, he is electrocuted and sent flying to the ground with stuck-up hair.

The group reaches the Visitor’s Center; Alan leaves the kids in the restaurant, where they eat until noticing a Velociraptor shadow. They hide in the kitchen, but are attacked by two Raptors; Tim locks one in a walk-in freezer. The two then escape the other Raptor, meet Alan and Ellie and hide in the maintenance room. After Lex re-boots the systems, the group must escape from the room before a Raptor breaks in; they clamber through the ventilation system until collapsing into the main hall. As the Raptors prepare to kill the four, the Tyrannosaurus appears and a fight breaks out between the carnivores. Tim is able to escape the island.

Alexis “Lex” Murphy (CB-Topps)

John Hammond’s granddaughter, Lex is dropped off on Isla Nublar with her younger brother, Timothy (or “Tim”) for the weekend so that they can escape their parent’s divorce. Lex seems unimpressed with the tour, especially the attempt to feed a goat to a Tyrannosaurus (as she is a vegetarian). Later, when the tour vehicles are forced to stop outside the Tyrannosaurus paddock, the goat lands on top of the vehicle that Tim, Lex and Donald Gennaro are in; the Tyrannosaurus breaks out of its paddock, and Gennaro leaves the vehicle, running away to hide. The children create enough ruckus for the dinosaur to notice them, and it attacks their vehicle; Dr Alan Grant is able to help Lex out of the vehicle before the Rex pushes the two of them (and the vehicle, with Tim still inside) off of the cliff within its paddock. Alan rescues Tim from the vehicle and the three sleep in a tree for the night. They continue trekking through the paddock the next day; when they pass over the paddock fence, Dr Ellie Sattler happens to reactivate it, which results in Tim (who is still on the fence) being electrocuted. The group reaches the Visitor’s Center; Alan leaves the kids in the restaurant, where they eat until noticing a Velociraptor shadow. They hide in the kitchen, but are attacked by two Raptors; Lex tricks a Raptor into knocking itself out by slamming into her reflection. The two then escape, meet Alan and Ellie and hide in the maintenance room. Lex figures out how to reboot the Park’s system, but then have to escape into the ventilation system as a Raptor breaks into the room. Lex collapses through a grate, but Alan saves her before the Raptor grabs her. They continue on until collapsing into the main hall. As the Raptors prepare to kill the four, the Tyrannosaurus appears and a fight breaks out between the carnivores. Tim is able to escape the island.

Ian Malcolm (CB-Topps)

A mathematician who specialises in Chaos Theory, Malcolm is brought to the Isla Nublar by Donald Gennaro to help judge Jurassic Park. Ian is shocked by the presence of dinosaurs, but states his belief that, no matter what, they are bound to break out and mate as “life finds a way”. While being toured around the island, he flirts with Dr Ellie Sattler, and explains Chaos Theory to her. When Alan Grant and Ellie leave the tour vehicle, after an unimpressive start to the tour, to view a sick Triceratops, Ian states that their random actions are examples of Chaos Theory, before following. While Ellie remains behind with the sick dinosaur and vet Gerry Harding, Ian remains on the tour, discussing relationships with Alan in their vehicle when the tour vehicles are forced to pause. When the fences go down and the Park’s Tyrannosaurus breaks out, Alan attempts to distract if from the vehicle that John Hammond’s grandchildren, Tim and Alexis, are in by waving a flare; Ian does the same, which causes the carnivore to chase after him, but even when he drops the flare it continues chasing him. He is wounded when the Tyrannosaur throws him into the toilet facility; later, Ellie and Robert Muldoon find Ian and rescue him, taking him back to the Visitor’s Center of the Park. Eventually, a bandaged Ian is rescued from Isla Nublar, along with Alan, Ellie, John, Tim and Lex.

While Ian is recuperating in Panama’s Centamcom Base Hospital, he hears that Alan and Ellie have sailed away from Isla Nublar, having gone their to help the army reorganise it; Ian believes that it is another example of Chaos Theory, as it is unknown how they found a boat. A few weeks later, a healed Ian, along with Muldoon, head out to find Alan and Ellie, having heard that they were in the Colombian jungles. They meet in a nearby town, and Ian goes into a deep explanation of Chaos Theory while flirting with Ellie again. When the four leave into the jungle to try and find the Raptors, Ian continues to flirt with Ellie, using Chaos Theory again and again in hopes that it will make Ellie consider a relationship with him. After failing to capture the Raptors, the group scours the jungle by helicopter until they notice a gorilla in the jungle; they land and try to find the gorilla, but it captures Ellie.

Ian, Alan and Muldoon set out to find her, and eventually she runs into them, having escaped the gorilla due to the Raptors. Malcolm sets out with the group, equipped only with a black bag and a gun of undetermined type.The group continue on, and Ian starts to contract a fever, which makes him delirious. This is only worsened when, after having to hide from an attacking BioSyn helicopter, the group encounters a jaguar which attacks and wounds Ian. Luckily, the quartet reaches a Native American village, whose occupants treat Ian. Ellie stays behind to watch over him while Alan and Muldoon leave to try and find rescue. Upon waking up, he and Ellie share a kiss, before setting out to find Alan and Muldoon; they come across the wreckage of two helicopters, which only spurs Ellie on further. Eventually, they find a wall, and Dr Fischer attacks them, wishing to kill the pair. It is then that the Raptors, held captive by Fischer, escape, and kill all of the BioSyn officers before leaving with their chicks. An InGen helicopter then rescues them, and they are shown relaxing with Alan and Muldoon in Caracas, Venezuela. When Hammond gathers a team to send to Isla Nublar to investigate the mysterious events happening there, he forbids Ian to go, due to his recent state of fever.

Eventually Ian Malcolm is summoned by John Hammond to lead a team (with one stowaway) to Isla Sorna to observe and document the animals there before Peter Ludlow and his team go in and round them up. Nick Van Owen and Sarah Harding free the captured animals from Ludlow’s team’s camp, while Nick stumbles upon an injured infant Tyrannosaurus. After bringing the infant Tyrannosaur into their camp from Ludlow’s team, Ian’s base camp suffers the loss of Eddie Carr and the loss of their vehicles. They’re later rescued by Ludlow’s team which make their way to the Operations Center based in the center of the island. Nick Van Owen eventually radios for help and they are all returned to the mainland. Meanwhile Ludlow and his team captured a Male Tyrannosaur and transport it and the infant back to San Diego. When the boat reaches San Diego, it’s found the crew had been slaughtered by the Tyrannosaurus and it unfortunately escapes. Sarah Harding and Ian lure the escaped Tyrannosaurus back to the boat by using the infant for it and the infant to be returned to Isla Sorna. Hammond appeals to the public that the animals require our absence to live in peace.

Dr. Alan Grant (CB-Topps)

A paleontologist working in the field in Montana, Alan was excavating a Velociraptor antirrhopus skeleton when John Hammond arrived to him and his co-worker Ellie Sattler by helicopter, offering them a chance to visit his Park and give their expert opinion, in return for which he would fund their excavations for three years. Both doctors accept and are taken, by helicopter, to Isla Nublar. Here, they witness living Brachiosaurs, and are toured through the Visitor’s Center, along with Dr Ian Malcolm and Donald Gennaro. The group also visit the Velociraptor Paddock, where Robert Muldoon explains the dangerous nature of the Raptors. Following this, he and the other three visitors, along with John Hammond’s grandchildren, Tim and Alexis, file into two tour-vehicles and proceed to be driven on a tour across the island. Unfortunately, they do not see any animals, until they eventually leave the tour-vehicles and encounter a sick Triceratops. All the while, Grant tries to escape the constant harassment from Tim, who never ceases to bombard his idol with questions. Later, the vehicles are forced to pause outside of the Tyrannosaurus Paddock on their return to the Visitor’s Center (as a hurricane is headed to the island), during which Alan and Ian, now alone in one of the vehicles, discuss relationships. It is then that the Tyrannosaur breaks loose from its paddock and attacks the vehicle that Tim and Lex are in – Alan takes a flare and waves it around to distract the Rex, but Ian then does the same and the Rex follows him. Alan goes ahead and rescues Lex from the crushed, up-turned vehicle, but cannot save Tim before the Rex returns and pushes the vehicle (with Tim inside), as well as Alan and Lex, off of the paddock’s cliff. (This differs from the movie, in which Alan and Lex hang from the cliff as the car is pushed down. Furthermore, the car lands in a tree in the movie, and Alan climbs up to rescue Tim; here, the car lands on the ground beside Alan and Lex. This is to shorten the remainder of the film so that it can fit within one comic.) The trio then trek across the island with the aid of a map to find their way, spending a night in a tree, and witnessing the Rex attacking a Gallimimus herd. As they cross over the Paddock fence, Ellie reactivates it, and Tim is sent flying from the fence. The group finally reaches the Visitor’s Center, where Alan leaves Tim and Lex briefly to meet with Ellie. The reunion between the two is cut short when Tim and Lex run over to them, having encountered two of the Raptors. They run to the control room, where Lex fixes the system, but the group must then escape into the ventilation system just as a Raptor breaks into the room. Alan rescues Lex when the Raptor almost attacks her, and fends it off with a kick. Finally, the four reach the entrance hall and fall onto the skeletons that are on display. As two Raptors are ready to kill them, the Rex breaks in and attacks the pair, allowing the humans to escape and leave the island via helicopter.

Alan and Ellie are later sent back to Isla Nublar to help the army with any information they require on the animals as they try to clear up the island. Agitated by General West and Dr Fischer, the pair head to the western side of the island, believing that any surviving Raptors would be hiding there. Each of them carries a rifle in case they were to find an animal. The pair flirts, before entering a cave by the shore. Here, they investigate with flashlights before being attacked by George Lawala, a hunter-for-hire, who chases the pair until the three of them come across a mother Raptor and her five children. Lawala kills the mother while Alan and Ellie escape, but he later fights with them. His first attempt to capture them with a net is foiled when Alan cuts the net with a knife. He soon captures both of them, taking them, along with the Raptors, onto a cargo ship. The pair wake up in a cage and try to break out using Alan’s belt-buckle, finding that the Raptors (in a separate cage) are doing the same with their claws. Lawala, however, confronts them, and sprays them with a knockout gas. They awaken once more on a cargo plane, still in their cages, and find that the Raptors have already broken out and are encircling the cage. The Raptors, however, cannot brake in as the buckle of Alan’s belt is stuck in the cage’s lock. Lawala goes to investigate the movement of the plane that is being caused by the Raptors and decides to free Alan and Ellie so that they can help him hunt the dinosaurs. Alan traps two Raptors in a crate, which he then shoves out of the cargo plane’s hanger, although they are still attached by rope. He meets up with Ellie, and the pair realise that they must pilot the plane (Lawala and the pilot, Brennan, were killed by the Raptors, and the Raptors in the crate are causing too much motion for the autopilot to work with). Alan fails to pilot the plane, and it crashes into a jungle below.

Later, Alan awakens in a bed with a cast on his left arm and bandages on his left shin. He meets his host, Rafael, who explains that he and Ellie were rescued from the plane with injuries; the three Raptors were also saved, and Rafael wishes to train them into his pets. He keeps Alan and Ellie captive as they are experts, and makes them tend to the wounded Raptor. The pair name the three Raptors Alf (alpha), Betty (beta) and Celia (in the clinic) . Eventually, the Raptors break out, and Alan and Ellie escape into the jungle, having been saved from Alf and Betty by Celia in thanks for aiding her. They eventually reach a nearby town, where Ian and Muldoon were about to head out from to look for them, and they explain what has happened. They set off into the jungle again to capture the Raptors, with Alan armed with a rifle again. But when they have a sight on them, a group of Native Americans disrupts them and the Raptors attack. Alf and Betty prepare to attack Ellie, against Celia’s wishes, and Alan shoots Betty to save Ellie. Alf and Celia escape.

Dr. Ellie Sattler (CB-Topps)

A paleobotanist who was working on the field in Wyoming with her partner, Alan Grant, when John Hammond arrived by helicopter and offered them a chance to visit his new amusement park in return for three years of funding for their dig. Upon arriving on Isla Nublar with Alan, John, Dr Ian Malcolm and lawyer Donald Gennaro, Ellie noticed extinct plants were growing on the island, and was shocked further upon discovering that there were living dinosaurs on the island, viewing the park’s Brachiosaurus. The guests were toured through the Visitor’s Center, where they witness the birth of a Velociraptor, and are then shown to the Velociraptor paddock and meet Robert Muldoon. The group discuss the philosophical ideals of the Park over dinner, before setting off on a tour of the Park with Hammond’s grandchildren, Tim and Alexis. Ellie travels in a vehicle with Alan and Ian; the latter flirts continuously with her while explaining Chaos Theory. After a disappointing start to the tour, Alan and Ellie leave their vehicle to see a sick Triceratops. Ellie diagnoses its problem, and decides to stay with it and Gerry Harding, a Park vet, while the others continue the tour. Gerry drops her off at the Visitor’s Center before leaving Isla Nublar; when the fences are deactivated and the Park’s Tyrannosaurus attacks the visitors, Ellie and Muldoon set off to search for Tim and Lex, but only find Ian and the remains of Gennaro. They leave in their jeep, chased by the Tyrannosaurus. The next day, Ellie and Muldoon leave to the maintenance shed to re-power the fences; the pair are hunted by Velociraptors, and Muldoon chooses to hold them up while Ellie continues to the shed. She reactivates the fences, almost killing Tim accidentally in the process, and is then chased out of the shed by a Raptor, which she locks in the shed. She returns to the Visitor’s Center to find Alan, and the pair meet up with Tim and Lex and re-boot the systems, before escaping from one of the Raptors by crawling through the ventilation system; however, they end up falling through, onto the skeletons in the Visitor’s Center main hall. The Raptors surround them, but just as they’re about to be attacked, the Tyrannosaurus breaks in and fights the Raptors; the group escape and leave the island by helicopter.

Ellie and Alan are later sent back to Isla Nublar to help the army with any information they require on the animals as they try to clear up the island. Agitated by General West and Dr Fischer, the pair head to the western side of the island, believing that any surviving Raptors would be hiding their. The pair flirts, before entering a cave by the shore. Here, they investigate before being attacked by George Lawala, a hunter-for-hire, who chases the pair until the three of them come across a mother Raptor and her five children. Lawala kills the mother while Ellie and Alan escape, but he later fights with and captures both of them, taking them, along with the Raptors, onto a cargo ship. The pair wake up in a cage and try to break out using Alan’s belt-buckle, finding that the Raptors (in a separate cage) are doing the same with their claws. Lawala, however, confronts them, and sprays them with a knockout gas. They awaken once more on a cargo plane, still in their cages, and find that the Raptors have already broken out and are encircling the cage. The Raptors, however, cannot break in as the buckle of Alan’s belt is stuck in the cage’s lock. Lawala goes to investigate the movement of the plane that is being caused by the Raptors and decides to free Alan and Ellie so that they can help him hunt the dinosaurs. Ellie comes across the dead bodies of Lawala, Brennan (the pilot) and the Raptor that attacked them, which Lawala had shot; Ellie cannot bring herself to kill it, and instead makes a loose tourniquet around its wound. She meets up with Alan, and the pair realise that they must pilot the plane (as Lawala and Brennan are dead and the Raptors in the crate are causing too much motion for the autopilot to work with). Alan fails to pilot the plane, and it crashes into a jungle below.

Apparently, Ellie awoke at one point during her recovery in Rafael’s secret hideout, but was knocked out again; when she confronts him about it, he states that she would do herself injury. Rafael keeps Ellie and Alan hostage so that they could serve as experts on the captive Raptors which Rafael is training to be his hounds; he also has them tend to the injured Raptor, who had survived thanks to Ellie’s makeshift tourniquet. The pair grow close to the Raptors, going so far as to name them (Alf, Betty and Celia); however, Alf and Betty foil Ellie and Alan’s escape. When the Raptors themselves ultimately break out, Alan and Ellie run for it; Celia stops Alf and Betty from attacking them, in thanks for the pair helping her when wounded. The two eventually reach a town, where Ian and Muldoon were about to head out from to look for them, and they explain what has happened. They set off into the jungle again to capture the Raptors, but when they have a sight on them, a group of Native Americans disrupts them and the Raptors attack. Alf and Betty prepare to attack Ellie, against Celia’s wishes, and Alan shoots Betty to save Ellie. Alf and Celia escape.

In pursuit of Celia and Alf, Ellie, Muldoon and Grant survey the jungle by helicopter to attempt to detect the raptors from the air. After Muldoon sights a Gorilla and attempts to investigate, the group landing to attempt to follow its trail. Ellie departs through the jungle with a backpack, which she promptly loses after being abducted by the Gorilla. However, as the Gorilla attacks the raptors, Ellie uses her opportunity to escape and rejoin the group.

As they regroup, Ellie and the others are attacked by a Biosyn Helicopter which attempts to kill them with machine gun fire. As they needed to attend to a sick Ian Malcolm, Ellie and the group encountered a tribe of Indians who took care of him, and allowed them to rest. She later flirts with Ian Malcolm, kissing him-but affirming that she still is committed to a relationship with Grant.

Upon encountering the raptor enclosure that Biosyn built, she is witness to the breach of the enclosure. She also survives a confrontation between the raptors and the Biosyn agents, watching the slaughter. However, the raptors spare her and Malcolm, and they are shortly rescued by helicopter. Afterward, the group rests in Venezuela, contemplating the eventual fate of the raptors.

Einhorn 20mm Rifle (S/F)

einhornThe Einhorn is a fictional sniper rifle introduced to us in Jurassic Park 3, which, according to the dialogue, fires a 20 millimeter diameter projectile. The real world weapon seen in the film, however, is actually the Barrett M82A2, which is bullpup sniper rifle that fires the .50 Browning Machine Gun cartridge. It is a variant of the better known M82A1, and no longer in production.

The Einhorn was seen only in the early scenes of JP3 in Cooper’s possession. In the scene where the rifle was first revealed, Cooper was using armor piercing incendiary rounds, which had a very destructive effect on the target. Cooper was also seen carrying the rifle into the jungle on Isla Sorna, until what is presumed to be an off-screen encounter with the Spinosaurus, during which shots were heard. After the first shots were fired, Nash and Udesky were clearly seen boarding the plane when a second, louder, burst of shots could be heard. It was certainly Cooper firing those last shots, but whether it was the Einhorn that was fired can only be inferred, as the action takes place off camera. The Einhorn was never seen again after this point, as Cooper emerged from the jungle without it.

Works as a technician at Jurassic Park; he was convinced to work at the Park by John Hammond, despite the fact that Nedry wanted a higher pay. Finding the work irritating, Nedry decided to earn money from BioSyn by stealing embryos from InGen. At some point before the events of “Jurassic Park”, Nedry sneaks away from his work for the day and relaxes on a beach, but soon finds himself being chased by a herd of escaped Stegosaurus. He meets with Lewis Dodgson, a member of BioSyn, in Costa Rica, and is given a transport case for the embryos, disguised as a shaving foam can. He shuts down the fences of Jurassic Park for eighteen minutes, enough time to distract Hammond and the rest of the staff while he steals the embryos. As he rushes to leave the island, however, he takes a wrong turn (being misled by a fallen sign), crashes and is attacked and killed by a Dilophosaurus.

Henry Wu (CB-Topps)

A leading geneticist at Jurassic Park, Wu tends to the dinosaur eggs; he is there when Drs Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler and Ian Malcolm, and Donald Gennaro, visit the island. He explains to Ian why it is possible for all dinosaurs on the island to be female. Wu leaves on the boat from the island at a later point.

Donald Gennaro (CB-Topps)

A lawyer who is invited, twice, to visit Jurassic Park. He constantly seems unimpressed with what he is seeing, both during the production of the Park and while accompanying Drs. Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler and Ian Malcolm on their tour. He notes on numerous occasions how the impressions of those seeing the Park (both the doctors and himself) affect the fate of Jurassic Park. Ultimately, when the fences are de-powered and the Tyrannosaurus rex escapes, Gennaro abandons John Hammond’s grandchildren, Tim and Alexis, and cowers in a nearby toilet facility. Eventually, the Rex proceeds to eat him after it shatters the facility; ironically, Gennaro had watched this dinosaur being born on his prior visit, and was unimpressed, evoking Hammond to tell him that “someday, this little fellow might surprise you!”

John Hammond (CB-Topps)

CEO of InGen and the head of Jurassic Park. At one point, Hammond considered building Jurassic Park in Orlando before settling on Isla Nublar. He toured Donald Gennaro around Isla Nublar during the construction of the Park facilities in an attempt to sway him into his favour. Gennaro seemed unimpressed by everything he witnessed, despite witnessing the birth of the Park’s first dinosaur, a young Tyrannosaurus rex. Around this time, he hired Dennis Nedry as one of the Park’s technicians.

In 1993, he invited Drs. Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler to Isla Nublar to receive the opinion of dinosaur experts on his island; in turn, he funded their palaeontological dig for three years. He led the guests, also including Gennaro and mathematician Ian Malcolm, on a tour through the Visitor’s Center, and they were joined by Hammond’s grandchildren- Alexis “Lex” Murphy and Timothy “Tim” Murphy – before heading out into the Park.

Hammond stayed behind in the Visitor’s Center, but became trapped there when the systems were sabotaged by Nedry during his attempt to steal dinosaur embroys for BioSyn (a rival company of InGen), and in the aftermath as John “Ray” Arnold tried, and failed, to reboot the system. Eventually, Hammond, along with his fellow survivors, manage to escape the Park.

In the aftermath of the incident, Hammond was furious at BioSyn, having figured out that they were the ones behind Nedry’s betrayal. In turn, Hammond ordered some of his men to plant a bomb in a major BioSyn facility, and soon receives a phone call from an enraged Steingarten (head of BioSyn), although he casually shrugs off his opponent’s accusations. At the same time, he sends a group of helicopters out to the South American rainforest to find the missing Grant, Sattler, Ian Malcolm and Robert Muldoon.

Shortly afterwards, with reports of a wounded soldier likely having been washed up from Isla Nublar, Hammond hires Grant, Sattler, Muldoon and Edgar Prather to search the island and find out what the army are doing there and what the “Green Flame” mentioned by the injured man was.

Velociraptor (sp.) (JN)

In reality, real Velociraptors were quite smaller than those featured in “Jurassic Park”, which are much closer in size comparison to Deinonychus. Deinonychus‘ name means “Terrible Claw” and it was discovered by Paleontology revolutionary Dr. John Ostrom in 1964 and named in 1969. Deinonychus weighed 160 pounds (73 kilos) and was 4 meters (13 feet) in length and nearly 1.8 meters (6 feet) high.

The real life Velociraptor name means “swift robber” first discovered and described by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1924 in what is now the Gobi Desert of Mongolia. Velociraptor lived in the Late Cretaceous around 67 million years ago. Velociraptor was 1.8 meters (6 feet) in length, 1 meter (3 feet) tall and 60 pounds (25 kilos) in weight.

Found on both Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna, the Velociraptors or “raptors” as they tend to be called, are Jurassic Park’s most intellectually advanced dinosaurs, hunting in packs and communicating with vocalizations allowing for efficient hunting tactics.

Tyrannosaurus rex (JN)

“Tyrant Lizard King” discovered in 1902 by Barnum Brown in Hell Creek, Montana. Tyrannosaurus was holder of the world’s largest carnivorous dinosaur before Spinosaurus and Giganotosaurus made their way onto the scene. Tyrannosaurus lived in the Late Cretaceous period and grew over lengths of 12 meters (40 feet), (46 feet recorded and held by “C-Rex”), 4 meters (13 feet) at the hips and 5 meters height (16 feet) at the top of head, & 6 to 8 tons in weight. The Tyrannosaurus in the Jurassic Park movies call Isla Sorna and Isla Nublar their homes. It is believed by some that in Jurassic Park /// the infant from Jurassic Park II: The Lost World was the one slaughtered at the talons of the Spinosaurus, while others feel it was the adult male Tyrannosaurus from The Lost World; however, there is not sufficient proof for either claim and some have also suggested it was a rogue young adult male Tyrannosaurus.

The amusement park, located on Isla Nublar, cloned and held a single adult Tyrannosaurus. The animal was not seen by the tour group sent to evaluate the park’s security the first time they visited her paddock. Later on the same day, during a storm, the Tyrannosaurus returned and broke free of its containment and attacked the two tour vehicles populated by Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ian Malcolm, Tim & Lex Murphy, and Donald Gennaro.

Gennaro was killed  and Malcolm injured by the rampaging animal, the rest escaped her. In an effort to rescue the stranded people, Robert Muldoon and Ellie Sattler drove a Jeep to their last known location. They retrieved Malcolm from the wreckage of the site but could not find the others. The T. rex then attacked them as they were leaving and chased their Jeep from her territory, trying to disable it during the chase. The three escaped her.

The T. rex attacked and killed a Gallimimus during a stampede and continued to follow the trail of Grant and the kids to the Visitor’s Center.

The Tyrannosaurus did not appear again until it entered the Visitor’s Center’s main lobby through a gap in its construction. The carnivore killed two Velociraptors that were attacking the remaining survivors, enabling them to escape in the commotion.

Years later on Site B, the cloning grounds and second dinosaur island controlled by InGen Corporation, a breeding pair of Tyrannosaurus populated the island. They had an infant that was found by the hunters Roland Tembo and Ajay Sidhu. The pair decided that they were going to use the baby as bait at another location to draw the Bull Tyrannosaurus into an area they could kill him from. Peter Ludlow, the financier of the hunter expedition, stumbled upon their trap in a drunken stupor and accidentally broke its leg. Nevertheless, the two professional hunters waited patiently for the Bull to arrive.

However, their wait would not last as they were forced to flee their perch during the sabotage of the hunter camp by Sarah Harding and Nick Van Owen. Nick heard the cries and took the injured baby to his and Sarah’s waiting AAV, amid protests from Harding.

The returned to the Research Trailers in order to set its broken leg, dealing with angry lectures from Ian. Despite this, Harding and Nick set about creating a cast. Meanwhile Ian sent his daughter to the High Hide in order to quell her anxiety about the screaming baby.

Ian raced back to the trailers to warn the two inside that the T. rex family was coming to their site to retrieve their missing infant. Before he could persuade them to remove and release the baby from the trailers, the pair arrived and investigated the trailers for evidence of their baby. Sarah released it to them with a cast on its leg.

Seconds later, the Tyrannosaurus returned and attacked the trailers. They flipped the back trailer, that the group was in, upside down and pushed it over the cliff. The trailer was suspended in air by the accordion attached to the front trailer, but the entire vehicle was slowing sliding over the edge.

Eddie Carr, the field technician that created the equipment for the expedition, tried to save the trailers and his friends but failed when the Tyrannosaurus returned to defend their new territory from the intrusion. They dismantled his AAV and killed him, the trailers and wrecked AAV flew over the cliff, but the group inside survived thanks to rope Eddie through down to them that was attached to a trees stump nearby.

The T. rex tracked the hunter-gatherer group that joined together after their respective incidents and arrived at their camp two nights later. The invaded their camp, smelling the dried blood of their infant and attacked after being startled by the screams of the awakening hunters.  The female Tyrannosaurus chased the fleeing humans down a narrow ravine. The female claimed two victims during the chase, stepping on a fallen Carter and entering a waterfall and nabbing a panicking Dr. Robert Burke. Meanwhile, Roland stalked the male that stayed behind to further inspect the temporary camp. Roland hit the male with one dart of tranquilizer, which caught his attention. Roland quickly inserted a second dart and shot the male again, knocking it out.

Ludlow ordered the capture of the baby which would be sent to the facilities on San Diego, where it would be joined by the Bull later in the night. The male hid on the InGen freighter he was being transported on and broke free from the cargo hold after it was opened to inspect the loss of crew.

The bull rampaged throughout the city in a rage. It was not until Malcolm and Harding took the baby from the San Diego facility and found the male that they lured him back to the freighter. The male returned to the cargo hold, where the baby was placed by the pair of scientists and found Peter Ludlow trying to take the baby back. The male injured Ludlow and encouraged the baby to attack its weakened foe. The baby attacked and killed the human, for its first hunting kill. The two T. rex were reunited with the female on Site B.

Eric Kirby found a urinating Tyrannosaurus years later and collected a sample.

Grant, Billy Brennan, Udesky and the Kirbys ran into a sub-adult Tyrannosaurus while fleeing a Spinosaurus, the T. rex fought the Spino, but was killed in the battle.

Spinosaurus aegyptiacus (JN)

“Egyptian Spine Lizard” discovered in 1912 by Markgraf in Marsa Matruh, Egypt and described by Dr. Ernst Stromer von Reichenbach in 1915. Spinosaurus lived during the Middle Cretaceous Period about 110 million to 90 million years ago. Spinosaurus was over 12 meters (40 feet) in length and could even possibly reach up to 18 meters (60 feet) in length, stood 5 to 6 meters (16-20 feet) in height, & weighed 7 to 9 tons in weight. When its sail is included in vertical measurements it was approximately 6.5-7.5 meters (22-25 feet) tall. The most complete skeleton of a Spinosaurus was destroyed in 1944 during a bombing raid on Munich, Germany during World War II.

Pteranodon longiceps “hippocratesi” (*) (JN)

“wing without tooth” found in the Central U.S. and described by Marsh in 1872. It was 9.7 meters (32 ft) in wingspan, 3.1 meters (10ft 2in) in height, and weighed 154 pounds. Pteranodon longiceps is actually a flying reptile, not a dinosaur. The animal has been identified as a P. longiceps as it shares but a few similar skeletal similarities to the actual creature. This “hypocrite” species, known so from the name meaning “wing without tooth,” but seen with teeth.

Parasaurolophus walkeri (JN)

Similar Saurolophus” found in Western North America and described by Parks in 1922. Parasaurolophus lived in the late Cretaceous about 76-65 Million years ago. It was 10.05 meters (33 ft.) in length, 4 meters (13 ft.) in height and weighed 4 tons. This animal is confused in the “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” Junior Novelization as being a “Carinthosaurus” by Roland Tembo.

Iguanodon bernissartensis (JN)

“Iguana Tooth” was initially found in 1822. Iguanodon was later described by English Geologist Gideon Mantell three years after its discovery and was the second dinosaur to be given a formal name. Iguanodon – along with Megalosaurus and Hylaeosaurus – were the first three dinosaurs ever introduced to the world. I. bernissartensis was found in 1878. There were as many as thirty-eight skeletons of this animal discovered and Alphonse Briart, the supervisor of the coal mine, allowed these animals to be unearthed. I. bernissartensis was the most famous of Iguanodon specimens due to the fact of how well preserved they were and the fact they were the first complete dinosaur found. This Iguanodon weighed in at 3.5 tons (3.08 tonnes). The Ornithopod grew to be as long as 10 meters (32.8 feet) in length, with even some of these animals growing up to 13 meters (42.6 feet) in length. Iguanodon was gifted with the ability to be a bipedal and quadrupedal dinosaur. Eric Kirby encountered a herd of these – even befriended a young Iguanodon – when he was stranded on Isla Sorna for eight weeks.

Gallimimus bullatus (JN)

galli_femaleThe “chicken mimic” was discovered in the early 1970s in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia and described in 1972 by Halszka Osmólska, Ewa Roniewicz, and Rinchen Barsbold.
Gallimimus lived during the Late Cretaceous about 71 to 68 million years ago. Up to 6 meters (20ft) in length, 2 meters (6.6ft) in height at the hips and 1000 pounds (454kg) in weight.

Gallimimus was found on Isla Nublar as one of InGen’s cloned species. Dr. Alan Grant, Lex and Tim Murphy encounter a herd of the animals which proceeded to stampede in their direction. They ran and sought shelter from them and witnessed the female Tyrannosaur ambush and kill one for a meal.

Dilophosaurus wetherilli “venenifer” (*) (JN)

“Double-crested reptile”, was discovered in 1942 in Monument Valley in the Navajo country, Arizona, by native Jesse Williams. Based on these remains, which came from the Kayenta Formation, it was described in 1954 by Sam Welles as a new species of Megalosaurus, before new remains revealed it was a new animal. Welles gave it a new description, and name, in 1970.

 Dilophosaurus lived during the Hettangian or Sinemurian stages of the Early Jurassic, about 200 to 190 million years ago. It was 6 meters (20ft) in length, over 1.8 meters (6ft) in height at the hips and 1000 pounds (454kg) in weight.

It belonged to the Dilophosauridae, a group of medium-sized early theropods that also included Cryolophosaurus, Dracovenator, and Zupaysaurus. Material for Dilophosaurus includes a number of specimens of varying degrees of completeness and ages, ranging from scattered fragments of an infant, to the incomplete subadult holotype specimen, to an incomplete adult specimen which was the first to preserve the distinctive crests, and more. The large crests for which it was famous may have been used for sexual display or intraspecific recognition, and would have been brightly colored. Several specimens have been discovered together and have been interpreted as evidence of group behavior, though this has been contested by other researches, leaving it open to debate. In addition, resting traces attributed to Dilophosaurus have been used to shed light on dinosaur posture, and track types from the Kayenta Formation have been attributed to Dilophosaurus.

It is heavily unlikely the real-life Dilophosaurus was able to spit venom.
