Did we mention Vincent was a Velociraptor?

Did we mention Vincent was a Velociraptor?
''Velociraptor''?



*** Funnily, Vincent actually mentions having watched ''Jurassic Park'' (though he doesn't name the film, it's obvious what he's talking about). He says it confirms humankind's greatest fears about dinosaurs, and the dinosaurs' fears of what will happen if humankind ever discovers they're still around. Therefore, his opinion of the film is on the low side.

** secondly [[spoiler: you never, '''''ever''''' incubate an egg underwater. Eggshell is what's known as a semi-permeable barrier. While a fetus is growing in an egg, air slowly seeps through the shell and forms a pocket for the chick to break into when it's ready to hatch. Incubate underwater and the chick drowns.]]

** Also there are a couple of mentions of them being different "breeds" of "the dinosaur species," a mistake that also made an appearance in Jurassic Park. A tyrannosaurus has as much in common with a stegosaurus as a human does with a zebra.

** That's not all. Vincent seems not to think highly of Compys (''procompsognathus''), often describing them as dullards.

* PaperThinDisguise: Garcia devotes some time to the "Guises" (humans suits, essentially) that the dinosaurs wear, but your guess is as good as ours how they work on less-easily-anthropomorphic species like Triceratops. The film cleans things up a bit by explaining that the "suits" are actually holograms.

Yes, there are dinosaurs living among us, disguised as humans. As silly as the premise is, Garcia treats it about as seriously as he can, and comes up with a pretty interesting back-story and culture for his dinosaurs. And the books are funny as hell.

** Also there are a couple mensions of them being different "breeds" of "the dinosaur species," a mistake that also made an appearance in Jurassic Park. A tyrannosaurus has just as much in common with a human as it does with a stegosaurus. (Okay it does have more in common with the stegosaurus, humans being mammals and all, but still - ''separate species''.)

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology:
** Garcia watched ''Film/JurassicPark'' a lot. That's ''all'' the research he did. It does get a little distracting at times (there are some weird passages in ''Casual Rex'' where Vincent feels his ''ears'' perk up), but for the most part, [[MST3KMantra just relax.]]
