The Lost Files- Ceratodraco by HodariNundu The Lost Files- Ceratodraco by HodariNundu
JURASSIC PARK Los Archivos Perdidos
Ceratodraco
Epoca: Cretaceo tardio, hace 65 millones de años
Distribucion: Norteamerica
Longitud: 3.5 metros
Peso: Hasta 100 kilos
Dieta: Herbivoro
Ceratodraco es un dinosaurio poco conocido que, cuando fue clonado por primera vez, fue llamado "Pachycephalosaurus cataphractus". No obstante, pronto se decidió que eran un genero aparte y se les rebautizó Ceratodraco cataphractus, por sus distintivos cuernos y la forma de su cabeza.
Es un herbivoro que vive en grupos pequeños conformados por un macho adulto y varias hembras. Los machos son mas grandes y tienen cuernos mas desarrollados.
Las hembras ponen sus huevos en un nido comunal y todas ayudan a criar a los pequeños. Tambien los machos participan en la crianza, aunque su tarea es principalmente la de proteger el territorio. Son animales mas bien agresivos y suelen atacar entre todos a los intrusos.
A pesar de su aspecto amenazante, no obstante, son menos propensos a embestir que los Pachycephalosaurus y en sus luchas intraespecificas, es mas importante la intimidacion que causar heridas reales al contrincante.
El llamado de este dinosaurio es un chillido largo como de pajaro, y en el caso de los machos, un rugido largo que usan mas que nada para alejar a los intrusos y para atraer a sus parejas potenciales.
TRIVIA: Segun los cuidadores de Jurassic Park, "los Ceratodracos definitivamente no son tan peligrosos como los Pachys, pero al parecer, el ver a un humano en el suelo o corriendo parece despertar su instinto de atacarlo en masa, como si fueran cuervos. Su mordedura es dolorosa, pero hasta la fecha, nadie ha sido herido de gravedad por estos animales".
Al parecer, los cuidadores encontraban mas desagradable la costumbre de las crias de escupir una mezcla de alimento semidigerido y jugos gastricos (descritos como "inusualmente acidos", cuando estaban de mal humor.
POTENCIALMENTE PELIGROSO


JURASSIC PARK The Lost Files
Ceratodraco
Age: Late Cretaceous, 65 mya
Range: North America
Length: 3.5 meters
Weight: Up to 100 kgs
Diet: Herbivore
Ceratodraco is a little known dinosaur that, when first cloned, was named "Pachycephalosaurus cataphractus". However, soon it was decided that it was a different genus and was renamed Ceratodraco cataphractus because of its distinctive horns and head shape.
It is a plant eater and lives in small groups of one male and several females. Males are larger and have more developed horns than females.
Females lay their eggs in one single nest and they all help raise the young. The male also helps, although mainly by protecting the territory. They are rather aggressive and usually attack the intruders in groups.
Despite their menacing looks, however, they are less prone to charge than Pachycephalosaurus, and during their intraspecific fights, intimidation seems to be more important than causing real injury.
This dinosaur's call is a long bird like scream, and males produce a long roar to keep other males away from their harems, and to attract potential mates.
TRIVIA: According to Jurassic Park keepers, "Ceratodracos are definitely not as dangerous as Pachycephalosaurus, but seeing a human laying in the ground or running seems to trigger a mobbing instinct like that of crows. Their bite is painful, but to date, no one has been seriously injured by these animals".
It seems that the keepers found more annoying their habit (in the young) of vomiting semi-digested matter and gastric juices (described as "unusually acid") when they were in a bad mood.
POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS

Because the Lost Files are supossed to be directly taken from InGen's archives, from the time when dinos were first being cloned and kept. At the time, Dracorex hadnīt been discovered as a fossil and therefore the Jurassic Park scientists did not know what dinosaur it was; so they made up a new name- Ceratodraco- for it.
Of course, the dragon-like appearance was hard to ignore. :B
