While the Jurassic World movies (2015-2022) offer thrilling entertainment, they aren't fully accurate representations of the dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and marine reptiles that lived in Earth's prehistory. The series has been criticised by paleontologists and scientists for a number of inaccuracies, including: 1. Incorrect Anatomy: For instance, the Velociraptors are portrayed as much larger than they were in real life (about the size of turkeys). Similarly, they had feathers, something which is not shown in the Jurassic Park series. 2. Misplacement in Time: Several species showcased in the Jurassic series actually lived during the Cretaceous period, not the Jurassic. 3. Behavior: There is no real evidence that dinosaurs, such as the ones in the film like the T-Rex and Velociraptors, worked together in teams to hunt or were capable of complex strategic thinking. 4. Communication: The film exaggerates the communicative abilities of dinosaurs. 5. Genetic Resurrection: The fundamental premise of the series, that dinosaur DNA could be extracted from amber-trapped mosquitoes and used to clone dinosaurs, is currently beyond the reach of science due to the degradation of DNA over time. That said, the film series has evolved its representation over time, incorporating some scientific advances and changing views on dinosaurs. The filmmakers' primary goal is entertainment, and they use creative license to ensure the movies are exciting for the audience. Nonetheless, they can serve as a fun starting point for learning about these prehistoric creatures.
