|Great. A Spinoraptor. Another aggressive carnivore to drop into a world of potential meals walking around in souvenir t-shirts and cargo shorts.
|My first instinct with this hybrid, the Spinoraptor, is to put it into the hands of Owen Grady and see if he could control it. I'm sure he'd be up to the challenge.
The Spinoraptor is the aggressive amalgamation of Velociraptor and Spinosaurus, possessing the cunning and ferociousness of its parent species. When the first Spinoraptor was released into the Tacaño Research Facility, it was discovered that it had been tampered with in the embryo stage by rivals of the Hammond Foundation, strengthening its hide and preventing it from being subdued by the ACU helicopter, necessitating the creation of a dinosaur capable of defeating the hybrid. Thereafter, the genome was perfected, resulting in more amenable specimens in future operations.
The Spinoraptor is similar in size to the Metriacanthosaurus, and while it shares many traits in common with small carnivores, it is capable of challenging and killing far larger predators. In addition, the Spinoraptor is a social animal and requires between two and four members of their species to remain content. It is the most docile of the hybrid theropods but will hunt guests more aggressively than its counterparts if it does escape.
Behind the scenes
Prior to its inclusion in Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu, Spinoraptor first appeared in the mobile game Jurassic World: The Game as a hybrid of Spinosaurus and Utahraptor.
