The Lost Files: Compsognathus by HodariNundu The Lost Files: Compsognathus by HodariNundu
JURASSIC PARK Los Archivos Perdidos
Compsognathus
Epoca: Jurasico tardio, hace unos 150-145 millones de años
Distribucion: Europa
Longitud: Hasta 1 metro
Peso: 3 kgs
Dieta: Carnívoro
El Compsognathus se cuenta entre los dinosaurios mas pequeños de Jurassic Park, y tambien esta entre los mas mortiferos.
Inteligente y muy activo, este dinosaurio, apodado "compi" por los cientificos del Parque, suele viajar en grupos capaces de perseguir, cansar y eventualmente devorar vivos a animales mucho mas grandes que ellos. Se ha comprobado que producen un ligero veneno, pero este no es ni de lejos lo suficientemente potente como para causar daños graves a un ser humano adulto.
Los compis son sorprendentemente rapidos y agiles; aunque pueden nadar, generalmente se alejan de las aguas profundas, prefiriendo las zonas de bosque humedo con abundancia de helechos, entre los cuales se camuflajean habilmente gracias a su color verde. Los compis poseen un lenguaje muy avanzado que en su tiempo fue estudiado a profundidad por los cientificos de Jurassic Park: por desgracia la base de datos del Parque sobre las vocalizaciones de los compis y su posible significado se perdieron despues de que la isla Sorna fuese abandonada.
Los compis son oviparos y construyen nidos comunales en zonas remotas de la selva; las crias estan listas para seguir al resto del grupo en tres o cuatro dias. Al parecer, no existe ningun tipo de jerarquía en los grupos de compis.
TRIVIA: El Compsognathus fue uno de los pocos dinosaurios de Jurassic Park a los que se permitió merodear en semilibertad por el Parque, ya que los cuidadores nunca pensaron que fueran peligrosos, y además, creyeron que eran tan "lindos" que los turistas merecian interactuar de cerca con ellos.
EXTREMADAMENTE PELIGROSO!

JURASSIC PARK The Lost Files
Compsognathus
Age: Late Jurassic (150-145 mya)
Range: Europe
Length: 1 meter
Weight: 3 kgs
Diet: Carnivore
Compsognathus ranks among the smallest dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, and also among the deadliest. Intelligent and very active, this dinosaur, nicknamed compy by the Park's workers, usually travels in packs able to chase, tire and eventually devour alive animals larger than themselves. It has been confirmed that they produce a mild venom, although it isn´t powerful enough to cause serious harm to an adult human.
Compys are surprisingly fast and agile; although they can swim, they usually stay away from deep water, and they prefer areas of humid forest with abundant ferns, where they can blend perfectly due to their green coloration. Compys have a very advanced language that was studied by the Jurassic Park scientists; unfortunately, the database containing the vocalizations of the Compsognathus and their suggested meaning was lost after Isla Sorna was abandoned.
Compys are oviparous and build communal nests in remote areas of the jungle; the young are ready to follow the pack three or four days after they hatch. There doesn´t seem to be any kind of hierarchy within a compy pack.
TRIVIA: Compsognathus was among the few dinosaurs in Jurassic Park allowed to roam semi-freely, for the keepers never imagined they could be dangerous, and besides, they thought they were so "cute" that the visitors just deserved to interact closely with them.
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!

Why do people think they are the same thing when they are not?

In the novel, yes. In the films, they were modelled after Compsognathus and official sources name it Compsognathus.

I got my first tattoo this weekend, a compsognathus on my wrist. The artist used your drawing as a base. I'm in love with it. Thank you! It's freaking awesome.
