Those screenshots remind me that the one thing I hate about JW is that it became too much of an action movie with dinosaurs, that's not what Jurassic Park is. The previous films handled it well but here it tried to mimic too much a superhero movie. Sorry, I hope I don't end up derailing the thread.

Okay, here are my headcanons by individual film:

Jurassic Park:

* The Velociraptors in the film series are a fictional North American subspecies of Velociraptor.

* The venom and frill of the Dilophosaurus are a natural part of the its physiology.

* Rexy was not in hunting mode (save for its attack on the Gallimimus, Triceratops, and Parasaurolophus), for most of its appearance. The other attacks it made were out of curiosity and territoriality.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park:


* A lot of the InGen hunters were contracted from Hammond's wildlife park in Kenya. The mercenaries, meanwhile were guns-for-hire hired for security and assistance in dinosaur capturing.

* Jurassic Park: San Diego was eventually demolished after the San Diego Incident.

* The Tyrannosaurus rex attacked the SS Venture's cabin from the viewpoint the "camera" is at.

* In 1999, a woman was stranded on Sorna and after a few days, was rescued after sending a distress signal. (This headcanon is based on a classified incident that happened according to the Masrani Backdoor, and is inspired by Trespasser.) This caused the United Nations to put more safety measures into making sure no unauthorized personnel come to the island.

* Nick van Owen did face jailtime, but John Hammond used his wealth to pay his bail.

Jurassic Park ///:


* The skull in the aviary belongs to an InGen employee who died during the 1993 evacuation.

* The Spinosaurus was originally mistook for a Baryonyx and was pumped full of steroids to ensure it survived infancy. Once InGen realized they had actually created a Spinosaurus, it was kept in a quarantine pen for study.

* The Spinosaurus was aggressive due to it being injured by the plane (There is precedent for similar situations regarding present-day carnivores).

* The Pteranodons from JP: The Game made their way to Isla Sorna where they were recaptured and placed into the aviary. (During the gap between the Isla Nublar incident and the Isla Sorna Evacuation).

* Owen was on board one of the US Navy Destroyers when Grant and the Kirbys were rescued. Owen (a young navy man at this point), spoke with Grant about his experiences and the Velociraptors. He then was transferred to the Marine Mammal Program. He quickly became an expert in his training, and Masrani hired him out of the Navy to head a research group at Jurassic World with Velociraptors.

* Mark Degler paid Grant the money the Kirbys owed him. He also used his influence to convince the Costa Rican government to pardon Paul and Amanda.

Jurassic Park: The Game:

* Gerry, Jess, and Nima's involvement in the Isla Nublar incident was quietly covered up by InGen who never discover Nedry's espionage.

* The Pteranodons in Jurassic Park: The Game are the same ones encountered by Grant, Billy, and the Kirbys in Jurassic Park ///.

Jurassic World:

* T. Rex Kingdom was the first attraction built for Jurassic World.

* Simon Masrani briefly considered using the original park, but changed his mind out of respect for Hammond.

* Simon Masrani tried to buy out Isla Sorna and get the U.N.'s permission to use it but was denied. They made an agreement to allow ACU to patrol the surrounding area to curb poaching.

* Owen Grady's Velociraptor training served two purposes: To prepare them for an upcoming attraction, and to study their intelligence to confirm they were viable as an attraction. (It wasn't until Hoskins saw Owen save Leon that he saw a opportunity to use them for military purposes.)

* Sarah Harding and Eric Kirby were the only original survivors to have visited Jurassic World for leisure. Alan Grant came for a one-time special appearance to do a presentation at the Petting Zoo.

* There are two restricted areas. The larger housed the temporary I. rex paddock and Owen's raptor pen. The smaller one (Sector 5) is home to the Dilophosaurus, Compsognathus, and Troodon.

* Hoskins abused his wife. Which explains why his wife tried to grab a knife, and the wolf attacked her.

* During Jurassic World's original ten year run, tourism in Costa Rica exploded, resulting in an economical boom which in turn allowed Costa Rica to have a developed economy, and by 2010, Costa Rica became a developed country.

* Brachiosaurus still reside in Isla Nublar and are a part of the Gyrosphere Valley attraction

* Lowery is one of Ian Malcolm's kids from a previous marriage.

* Masrani had the old Visitor's Center partially repaired, but abandoned it in favor of starting from scratch.

I've had this head canon since I was a kid and I still like it.


Site B is officially called The Lost World in honor of the novel. The logo is like the TLW:JP logo. That's how I made sense of the vehicles having TLW on them; it was the name of the "second" park/breeding center so they were labeled as such.

If you're talking about the original novel written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, then you're right. Papa T. rex rampaging in San Diego was based of the Apatosaurus/Brontosaurus rampaging in London in the original 1925 movie as well.

* There is one more T.rex on Jurassic Park: Isla Nublar. But, soon, Rexy killed her before Isla Nublar Incident

* Japanese Fishermans found dead Parasaurs in their net.

* Spinosaurus is InGen's First Hybrid. Dr. Wu made her because his curiosity.

* Stegoceratops lived on Restricted Area.

* I. rex had a Human DNA.

* Benjamin Lockwood is CEO of Genetic BioSyn.

* Grandel International Corporation existed in Film canon. They tried to make Human-Dino Hybrid. But, they failed. Soon, BioSyn bought Grandel.

Revamp v2.0

My headcanons by individual film:

Jurassic Park:

* The Velociraptors in the film series are a fictional North American species of Velociraptor. (Hence Alan Grant identifying their fossils in Montana as such.)

* The venom and frill of the Dilophosaurus are a natural part of its physiology.

* Randy is the Velociraptor that kills Jophery and Muldoon, and the one Muldoon refers to as "the big one". Kim and the shed raptor are her subordinates.

* In a dark form of irony, the raptor that attacks Sattler was also named Ellie.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park:

* A lot of the InGen hunters were contracted from Hammond's wildlife park in Kenya. The mercenaries, meanwhile were guns-for-hire hired for security and assistance in dinosaur capturing.

* Jurassic Park: San Diego was eventually demolished after the San Diego Incident.

* The Tyrannosaurus rex attacked the SS Venture's cabin from the viewpoint the "camera" is at.

* In 1999 (roughly a year after InGen ended their illegal operations on the island), a woman was stranded on Sorna and after a few days, was rescued after sending a distress signal. (This headcanon is based on a classified incident that happened according to the Masrani Backdoor, and is inspired by Trespasser.)

* Nick van Owen did face jailtime, but John Hammond used his wealth to pay his bail.

Jurassic Park III:

* The skull in the aviary belongs to an InGen employee who died during the 1993 evacuation.

* The Spinosaurus was aggressive due to it being injured by the plane (There is precedent for similar situations regarding present-day carnivores).

* The Pteranodons from JP: The Game made their way to Isla Sorna where they were recaptured and placed into the aviary. (During the gap between the Isla Nublar incident and the Isla Sorna Evacuation).

* Owen was on board one of the US Navy Destroyers when Grant and the Kirbys were rescued. Owen (a young navy man at this point), spoke with Grant about his experiences and the Velociraptors. He then was transferred to the Marine Mammal Program. He quickly became an expert in his training, and Masrani hired him out of the Navy to head a research group at Jurassic World with Velociraptors.

* Mark Degler paid Grant the money the Kirbys owed him. He also used his influence to convince the Costa Rican government to pardon Paul and Amanda.

* Ken Wheatley was the third mercenary that the Kirbys had hired, and the one that fell ill, causing Udesky to take his place.

Jurassic Park: The Game:

* Gerry, Jess, and Nima's involvement in the Isla Nublar incident was quietly covered up by InGen. (This was InGen's favor to them after Gerry Harding revealed why Dennis Nedry stole the embryos.)

* The Pteranodons in Jurassic Park: The Game are the same ones encountered by Grant, Billy, and the Kirbys in Jurassic Park III.

* The Tylosaurus died shortly after the 1993 incident due to starvation.

* When Jurassic World was being constructed, the Troodons were swiftly eradicated.

* The Dilophosaurus seen in the game are female, whereas the one that killed Dennis Nedry was one that had early on, changed sex from female to male (hence the different coloration and more vibrant frill.)

* The Parasaurolophus in the InGen Field Lab were specially bred exclusively for Laura Sorkin's research.

Jurassic World:

* Simon Masrani briefly considered using the original park, but changed his mind out of respect for Hammond.

* The Holoscape was one of Jurassic World's most recent attractions to be built prior to the Indominus rex incident. (As a fully-grown Blue is depicted.)

* InGen Security patrolled Isla Sorna not only to curtail poaching of the dinosaurs, but to protect InGen wranglers as they began re-locating Sorna's dinosaurs between 2004-2015.

* Owen Grady's Velociraptor training served two purposes: To prepare them for an upcoming attraction, and to study their intelligence to confirm they were viable as an attraction. (It wasn't until Hoskins saw Owen save Leon that he saw a opportunity to use them for military purposes.)

* Sarah Harding and Eric Kirby were the only original survivors to have visited Jurassic World for leisure.

* Hoskins abused his wife. This explains why his wife tried to grab a knife, and the wolf attacked her.

* During Jurassic World's original ten year run, tourism in Costa Rica exploded, resulting in an economical boom which in turn allowed Costa Rica to have a developed economy, and by 2010, Costa Rica became a developed country.

* Lowery is one of Ian Malcolm's kids from a previous marriage.

* The Pachycephalosaurus sedated by ACU is Friar Tuck from TLW.

* The Deinonychus and Styracosaurus depicted in Jurassic World: Evolution are what they look like in film canon.

* The depictions of Parasaurolophus and Pachycephalosaurus on the Jurassic World website are the Masrani clones, while their variants seen in the film are original InGen clones.

* The Jurassic Park III Ankylosauruses are male, while the ones in Jurassic World and Fallen Kingdom are female.

* The Coelurus, Elaphrosaurus, Euoplocephalus, Hadrosaurus, Lesothosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, and Segisaurus depicted on the Jurassic Park institute website are what they also look like in the film canon. [Note: This will change if any of the aforementioned dinosaurs end up being added into Jurassic World: Evolution.]

* The Giganotosaurus and Majungasaurus depicted in Jurassic World: Evolution is what they would have looked like had they been cloned by InGen.

* The Therizinosaurus depicted in the Jurassic Park institute website is what it would have looked like had it been cloned by InGen. [Note: This will also be updated if it is later added to Jurassic World: Evolution.]

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
* The Baryonyx is one of the original InGen clones, while the ones depicted on the Jurassic World website are one of the new Masrani clones.

* The blue Apatosaurs seen in Jurassic World are female, while the green Apatosaurs seen on the DPG website are male.

* Ken Wheatley had a brother who died during the 1997 Isla Sorna Incident, and his taking teeth for a necklace is his form of avenging his brother's death.

All 28 of the dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures on the holo scope were cloned by Ingen and/or Masrani at some point, and all of them except the Spinosaurus were on display at jurassic world.

1) The 1st animal cloned by ingen at the lockwood manor was a pleistocene mammal, either a pygmy elephant (like in the novel) or a sabertooth.

2) The JP/JP3 brachs are "Brachiosaurus" brancai (giraffatitan), while the FK ones are B. alithorax.

3) The kirby's probably spent some time in jail before someone paid their bail.

4) JP san-diego wasn't discarded in favor of nublar, but rather kept as a possible expansion if the 1st park was succesful (but the incident happened lol).

5) The spinosaurus and JP3 raptors were probably Dr. Wu's earliest experiments with genetic modification and hybridization on animals under Masrani. Basically, they both paved way for his first full on dino hybrid, the indominus.

6) The spinosaurus was probably mistreated by the masrani/ingen workers and hurt because of the plane, and also a man eater (which is why he was chasing Grant and co).

7) During the construction of JW, rexy was the 1st dinosaur captured.

8. The IBRIS project started with captured sorna raptors (of both TLW and JP3 kinds), but they were too feral and aggresive to work with.

The value of currency in the JP universe is multiple times higher than it is in real life. For example, a million dollars in the JP-verse would actually be worth something like 10 million dollars in our world. As a kid, I've always thought that Hammond's "50 thousand a year well-spent" in JP made no sense, and came up with this idea after hearing complaints about the low auction prices in FK.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean.

I'm no paleontologist, or accountant, but I think getting 50,000 a year (in 1993) seems pretty fair especially since the digs were being funded by a billionaire (or multi-millionaire, either way Hammond was extremely wealthy), and its possible Grant was getting other sources of money too, since he was working for a university.

As for the auction prices, I don't see how they were low. A single Lockheed C-130 Hercules costs $30 million, a M1 Abrams tank costs $4.3 million, and a Boeing 787-10 costs $325.8 million, and Green Monkey, a thoroughbred American racehorse was auctioned for $16 million in 2009. The Ankylosaurus went for what, $40 million?

Again, doesn't seem like the auction guests were getting them cheap. Of course, we don't have any real-world precedence of a cloned non-avian dinosaur to compare with.

I may be misinterpreting the line, but I'm under the impression that Hammond wasn't referring to anything related to Grant or the digs, since he only offered to fund them later on in that same scene. As for the auction prices, people have been comparing it with the prices of real-life exotic animals. The Ankylosaurus went for $10 million.

Honestly my only major head canon lately is that the name changes in real life centered around Velociraptor/Deinonychus at the time happened in universe, but stuck. So the Velociraptors are scientifically accurate in universe, but really are Deinonychus/Utahraptors.

Even before inGen began cloning extinct animals, they heavily invested in paleontological digs across the world in exchange for an interest in their research and possibly some fossils, though the latter clause was almost never invoked in-universe. The existence of better-funded paleontology leads to many species discovered later in our timeline being discovered and identified much earlier in-universe, leading to an earlier 'Dinosaur Renaissance' period. This is enhanced by the involvement of fictional paleontologists, such as Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Robert Burke, and leads to a wider array of known species, and a slightly greater public interest in dinosaurs during the periods leading to inGen's founding. (With, ironically, a cooling in the nineties due to inGen's existence, becoming somewhat inverse of reality) Due to political reasons, China remains difficult, so the development and understanding of feathered dinosaurs remains somewhat closer to our contemporary knowledge, though is still affected.

This is also why, in-universe, Deinonychus is considered a synonym with Velociraptor, and Girrafatitan is still seen a subspecies of Brachiosaurus. By the time Masrani Global takes control of inGen, they occasionally use their weight in the paleontology community to bully their findings into being accepted or unquestioned, preserving these outdated taxonomies.
