The Lost Files- Piscatosaurus by HodariNundu The Lost Files- Piscatosaurus by HodariNundu
JURASSIC PARK Los Archivos Perdidos
Piscatosaurus
Epoca: Cretaceo tardio, hace 70 millones de años
Distribucion: Madagascar
Longitud: 2 metros
Peso: Hasta 40 kilos
Dieta: Piscivoro
Piscatosaurus es uno de los dinosaurios mas extraños de Jurassic Park; fue uno de los ultimos dinosaurios clonados por InGen, y por su rareza fue elegido como una de las atracciones de la gira principal, aunque por ser una especie completamente nueva para la ciencia, su existencia se mantendría en secreto hasta el dia de la inauguracion del parque.
Este animal es bastante raro y esquivo; vive cerca de arroyos y estanques (su recinto en Jurassic Park ra basicamente una isla en medio de un pequeño lago artificial) y generalmente sale a pescar durante la noche y al atardecer. Muy raras veces se le ha visto de dia.
El macho es algo mas grande y robusto que la hembra. El Piscatosaurus suele vadear en aguas poco profundas, pero tambien puede nadar e incluso bucear; puede permanecer bajo el agua alrededor de cinco minutos, aunque generalmente sus inmersiones son mas breves. Sus ojos de color café estan bien protegidos por una membrana translucida. Se cree que este dinosaurio tiene una vision nocturna al menos ocho veces mas desarrollada que los humanos.
Se desconoce todo sobre sus habitos de apareamiento y crianza. Es mucho mas facil escuchar a un Piscatosaurus que verlo; su llamado, increiblemente extraño, puede ser escuchado durante las primeras horas de oscuridad, cuando el animal se dispone a iniciar su caceria.
TRIVIA: Por sus monstruosos dientes, se consideró para este dinosaurio el nombre de Teratophoneus atrox (asesino monstruoso y atroz). No obstante, este nombre fue rapidamente desechado cuando los cuidadores comprobaron que solo aceptaba pescado como alimento, y que era bastante inofensivo para los seres humanos. Por ello se le cambio el nombe a Piscatosaurus drakei. Segun uno de sus cuidadores, "El Piscatosaurus es de caracter tranquilo, pero nosotros preferimos no hacerlo enojar; a ninguno de nosotros le gustaria ser mordido por este animal".
INOFENSIVO SI NO SE LE PROVOCA

JURASSIC PARK The Lost Files
Piscatosaurus
Age: Late Cretaceous, 70 mya
Range: Madagascar
Length: 2 meters
Weight: Up to 40 kgs
Diet: Piscivore
Piscatosaurus is one of the strangest dinosaurs in Jurassic Park; it was one of the last dinos to be cloned by InGen and due to its weirdness, was chosen to be one of the main tour's attractions, although, since it was a completely new species for science, its existence was to be kept as a secret until the Park's opening day.
This is a very rare and elusive animal; it roams around creeks and ponds (its enclosure in Jurassic Park was basically an island in the middle of a small artificial lake), and it is usually active during night and dusk. It is very rare to see it during daylight.
The male is larger and more robust than the female. Piscatosaurus usually wades in shallow water, but can also swim and even dive. It can stay underwater around five minutes, although usually its dives are not that long. Its brown eyes are well protected by a translucid membrane when underwater. This dinosaur is thought to have a nocturnal vision over eight times better than ours.
Everything about its mating and breeding habits is unknown. It is much easier to hear a Piscatosaurus than to see it. Its call, incredibly strange by the way, can be heard during the first hours of darkness, when the animal starts its hunt.
TRIVIA: Because of its monstrous teeth, the name Teratophoneus atrox (Monstrous and atrocious killer) was considered for this dinosaur. However, it was dropped when the keepers confirmed that it would only take fish as food, and that it was quite harmless to humans, so the name was changed to Piscatosaurus drakei. According to a keeper's notes "Piscatosaurus is easy going, but we try not to make it angry; none of us would like to receive a bite from this animal".
HARMLESS IF UNPROVOKED

You must be a psychic Hodari. Because I hear that today they named a new type of tyrannosaur Teratophoneus (curriei for the species name though, but very close still.lol). Wonder if the next image you make will be of the true "monstrous murderer".
