The Lost Files- Furcasaurus by HodariNundu The Lost Files- Furcasaurus by HodariNundu
JURASSIC PARK Los Archivos Perdidos
Furcasaurus
Epoca: Cretaceo tardio, hace 70 millones de años
Distribucion: America del sur
Longitud: 2.5 metros
Peso: 30 kilos
Dieta: Omnivoro
El Furcasaurus es un extraño dinosaurio descubierto originalmente por los cientificos de InGen.
Es un animal particularmente activo que se mueve usualmente en pequeños grupos. Principalmente nocturno, como atestiguan sus extrañas pupilas hendidas, este dinosaurio es un corredor rapido y ruidoso que nunca se queda mucho tiempo en el mismo lugar. Se alimenta principalmente de insectos; hormigas y termitas conforman gran parte de su dieta. Las cortas pero fuertes garras delanteras (solo una en cda mano) le ayudan a arrancar las paredes de los termiteros, la corteza de los arboles etc, y su larguisima lengua pegajosa atrapa a los insectos incluso si permanecen en el fondo de sus nidos.
Los Furcasaurus estan tambien activos durante el dia, pero usualmente se alimentan solo durante las horas de oscuridad. Machos y hembras son muy similares; la diferencia es que los machos cuentan con una papada de color anaranjado muy vistosa que pueden extender para atraer a una pareja.
Cuando son atacados por un depredador, los Furcasaurus huyen en todas direcciones haciendo mucho ruido, y se dirigen hacia la vegetación espesa; pueden correr a cerca de 80 kilometros por hora lo que usualmente les sirve para escapar de cualquier dinosaurio carnivoro. No obstante si son atrapados pueden causar serias heridas a sus enemigos con sus afiladas garras.
TRIVIA: Un documento de Jurassic Park sobre los Furcasaurus reporta que “Estos dinosaurios siguen jugando incluso después de alcanzada la edad adulta, al parecer por pura diversión. Su juego favorito es el de perseguirse unos a otros, aunque tambien parecen disfrutar el fastidiar a sus cuidadores, o incluso, arrojarlos a los abrevaderos”.
Este reporte coincide con el comportamiento del Furcasaurus en estado salvaje, que a menudo se reune en grupos para fastidiar a dinosaurios mas grandes. Aun asi, son mas bien huidizos en presencia de seres humanos.
INOFENSIVO SI NO SE LE PROVOCA

JURASSIC PARK The Lost Files
Furcasaurus
Age: Late Cretaceous, 70 mya
Range: South America
Length: 2.5 meters
Weight: 30 kgs
Diet: Omnivore
Furcasaurus is a strange dinosaur discovered by InGen scientists.
It is a specially active animal that moves in small groups. Mainly nocturnal, as evidenced by its strange slit-like pupils, this dinosaur is a fast and noisy runner that never stays in one place for a long time. It feeds mainly on insects, ants and termites being a major part of its diet. Its strong, short claws (only one per hand) help it strip off tree bark or the walls of termite mounts, and its extremely long and sticky tongue captures the insects even if they remain deep inside their nests.
Furcasaurs are also active during day, but usually feed only at night. Males and females look alike but males have a bright orange dewlap they can extend to attract a mate.
When attacked, each Furcasaur runs away in a different direction, making a lot of noise and head for thick vegetation; they can reach speeds of almost 80 kms P/h, enough to escape most predators. However, if caught, they can cause serious injury with their sharp claws. TRIVIA: A document on Furcasaurs from Jurassic Park reports that "These dinosaurs keep playing even after they reach adulthood, simply because it's fun. Their favorite game is to chase each other, but they also seem to enjoy mobbing their keepers and even, throw them to the watering holes".
This report is consistent with Furcasaurus' behavior in the wild; they often gather to mob larger animals, just for fun. Even so, they are rather shy in the presence of humans.
HARMLESS UNLESS PROVOKED

I know Furcasaurus is totally fictional, but I did a little research and found three canidates of what it could actually be; Achillesaurus, Alvarezsaurus, or Patagonykus.
