If you have a few minutes, start poking around the Jurassic World website. There is a ton of awesome content on there, including some very exciting teases of the mysterious, deadly Indominus Rex. We saw the hybrid dinosaur’s feet in the teaser trailer, some toys, and now he has an official website. On it, there’s a very frightening image of his teeth, a glimpse of his lair and more. Plus, there are some cool images of the full Jurassic World map. Check out all the Indominus Rex Jurassic World info below.
Indominus Rex Jurassic World
The site also has some info on the beast:
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.
Here are a few other images we thought where cool from the Jurassic World site, including an interactive map of the park and their very own IMAX theater
Jurassic World directed by Colin Trevorrow, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, opens June 12. We’ll have more later this week when the Super Bowl commercial is revealed. What do you think of the Indominus Rex Jurassic World?Cool Posts From Around the Web:
