When it comes to new attractions, Jurassic World never stops dreaming. To top the already immense accomplishment of bringing dinosaurs back to life, they’ve begun tinkering with DNA to create ones like Indominus Rex.
Here’s the official description of the new creation, courtesy of the official Jurassic World site:
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed.
Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.
Oh, by the way, the site also says that this dino has shark-like teeth that are constantly replacing themselves. You’ve got to wonder about scientists who essentially gave a killer reptile unlimited ammo. It’s almost like they want to get eaten.
Jurassic World, which stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Judy Greer and Jake Johnson, opens on June 12.
