faster, sleeker version of T-Rex, essentially a mean killing machine with a massive skull, lethal, serrated teeth and very short forelimbs. “During the migration they have to cross through a territory where the dangerous Gorgosaurus live. Gorgosaurus are smaller than the T- Rex and because they’re smaller, they happen to be a lot faster,” says Cook. “Every year, they would wait for the migrating herds to pass through their areas, so that they could have their feast.”
“Patchi was designed to be a little bit clumsy, a little bit foolhardy, but also somebody who really cares,” says Marco Marenghi the animation director. “Patchi thinks outside the box. That is his strength. He is more of a thinker than his bullheaded brother. Scowler is the alpha male. He is very arrogant and the only person he cares for is himself.”
Marenghi and the rest of the team made sure that their dinosaurs were as accurate as possible.
They had scientists and paleontologists involved in the project. A paleontologist is a scientist who studies all kinds of fossils, not just dinosaur bones.
“There is nothing that stokes the imagination quite like dinosaurs,” says one of the movie’s paleontologists, Stephen Brusatte. “There is just some indescribable essence to them. They are fantastic creatures,” he says.
“Do I have what kids would see as a dream job? Other than an astronaut and firefighter, I would say yes, it is a dream job and it is a great job. I love it,” laughs Brusatte. “There aren’t many of us, maybe two or three thousand I would guess in the paleontology realm and of people who study dinosaurs, there are just a few hundred. You do have to study for a long time and get a lot of degrees before you get a job and I really lucked out.”
