Jurassic Park speeches before and after Empty

I originally posted the following at deviantART ( https://www.deviantart.com/jd-man/journal/SD-Jurassic-Park-speeches-before-and-after-1068831458 ).

Hi everybody!

This journal entry is the sequel to "SD: Jurassic Park dinos then and now" ( https://www.deviantart.com/jd-man/journal/SD-Jurassic-Park-dinos-then-and-now-990358481 ) in honor of both Jurassic June & Pride Month ( https://www.jurassicparkpodcast.com/home/community-focus-welcome-to-jurassicjune ). I've been wanting to adapt the JP raptor speeches in ways that are both faithful to the essence of JP's OG raptors & anatomically/functionally accurate by modern standards (hence the cover image: https://www.deviantart.com/paleoarqueiro/art/Try-to-show-a-little-respect-751637048 ). "Chaos Theory" reminded me of that.* I hope that at least some of you like how my adaptations turned out.

*More specifically, the 4/30 CT trailer ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftbjh-3OsuA ) reminded me of "Tenontosaurus in the woods" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m68SODil6w0 ) & I couldn't help but think something like, "Imagine how much cooler/scarier the Atrociraptor scenes would be if the raptors were better designed/more scientifically accurate". That's not to say I don't appreciate how very-good-to-great "Camp Cretaceous" & CT are, especially given what they had to work w/, just that they deserve SO much better than what they had to work w/ (which I previously discussed in "SD: My favorite aspects of Camp Cretaceous" & "SD: More Dino Sources and Wishes": https://www.deviantart.com/jd-man/journal/SD-More-Dino-Sources-and-Wishes-970376086 ).

Grant's speech before...: https://archive.ph/4TRDh

...& after: "Volunteer Boy : That doesn't look very scary. More like a six-foot turkey.
Dr. Alan Grant : A turkey, huh? OK, try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this "six-foot turkey" as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement - maybe he's not all that bright. But no, not Deinonychus. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side,
[makes 'whooshing' sound]
Dr. Alan Grant : from the other two raptors you didn't even know were there. Because Deinonychus is a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he stabs at you with this...
[he produces raptor claw from his pocket]
Dr. Alan Grant : A six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the middle toe. He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion, say... no no. He stabs at you here, or here...
[he lightly 'stabs' across the kid's body with the raptor claw]
Dr. Ellie Sattler : Oh, Alan...
Dr. Alan Grant : Or maybe right in the belly, ripping out your intestines. The point is, you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know, try to show a little respect.
Volunteer Boy : OK.
[Alan leaves the now slightly frightened kid]"

He jamed his hand up in there and ripped out a piece of intestines": https://archive.ph/NnBAb ).

Muldoon's speech before...: https://archive.ph/9uI27

...& after: "Dr. Alan Grant : [about the velociraptors]  What kind of metabolism do they have? What's their growth rate?
Muldoon : They're lethal at 12 months, and I do mean lethal. I've hunted most things that can hunt you, but the way these things move...
Dr. Alan Grant : Fast for a biped?
Muldoon : Horse speed. 25, 30 miles an hour if they ever got out into the open, and they're astonishing jumpers...
John Hammond : Yes, yes, yes. That's why we're taking extreme precautions.
Dr. Alan Grant : Do they show intelligence? With their brain cavity...
Muldoon : They show extreme intelligence, even problem-solving intelligence. Especially the big one. We bred eight originally, but when she came in she took over the pride and killed all but two of the others. That one... when she looks at you, you can see she's working things out. That's why we have to feed them like this. She had them all attacking the fences when the feeders came.
Dr. Ellie Sattler : But the fences are electrified though, right?
Muldoon : That's right, but they never attack the same place twice. They were testing the fences for weaknesses, systematically. They remember."

Sources of info/inspo: Molina-Pérez/Larramendi's "Dinosaur Facts and Figures" ( https://archive.ph/MjlBr ), World Book's "Science Year 1989"( https://archive.ph/EoLL0 ), Animal Corner's "How Fast Can A Horse Run?" ( https://archive.ph/JNay0 ), & the following quotes. More specifically, @Albertonykus reminded me of the turkey-sized 1-year-old MCZ 8791, which reminded me of Pedro Salas' Deinonychus paper (specifically, the Galliformes & Pavus parts), which reminded me of when Turkey Boy attacked Joe Hutto (See the Buford quote), which reminded me of "one of the most terrifying scenes in [The Birds]" (See the Bartlett quote). Point being, given how much JP's OG raptors hate humans, I can easily imagine a young "big one" ambushing a feeder like Primeval's baby raptor (See 0:59: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHZpwsBK1D8 ), but better b/c of her feathers & flight ability (which would make her "even more deadly" & add to "the way these things move...": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcRxwi0x5ig ).

Quoting Salas ( https://www.deviantart.com/pedrosalas/art/A-reconstruction-of-Deinonychus-antirrhopus-625726418 ): "The wing shape described for Galliformes consists of shorter primary coverts and elongated secondary remiges, as well as elongated secondary coverts (Wang & Clarke, 2015). And this is, consequently, the appearance that has been given to the wing of our juvenile D. antirrhopus. Specifically, the wing of the Galliforme Pavus cristatus has been taken as a model because it is a galliforme similar in size to juvenile D. antirrhopus."

Quoting Buford ( https://archive.ph/y8oMT ): "One day, in the early spring, Hutto was on his knees, struggling to pull out a root. He turned and noticed Turkey Boy: his head was engorged, and his plumage was swelling. “My behavior must have provoked him. I was on his level, on the ground, thrashing around.” Hutto reached out his hand to comfort the bird, but it pecked him, drawing blood. Hutto got up to go inside, but the bird got to the door first and blocked his way. He eventually got inside. “I assumed the incident would pass.” When he stepped out four hours later, the bird flew at his head. Hutto then understood: he was being seen as a rival. He thought he should simply surrender and be submissive—the attitude that male turkeys assume to concede their spot in a pecking order—and threw himself on the ground. The bird attacked his head, which Hutto tried to cover with his hands, shredding the skin. It didn’t stop—“Turkey Boy’s wrath was bottomless”—and Hutto got to his feet and sprinted for the door. The bird flew at him, stabbing him from behind, embedding his spurs into the muscles on either side of Hutto’s spine. The next day, the bird was lying in wait and ambushed him, spurs aimed at his eye. Hutto had a problem. He broke off a heavy limb from a longleaf pine, squared off in front of the bird, and swung it like a baseball bat. He missed, lost his footing, and fell. The bird beat him up. Hutto got to his feet and swung again, hitting the bird squarely on the head. The bird looked at Hutto, turned, and ran. (“I was sick. My heart was broken.”) It returned the next day, ready to resume the fight."

Quoting Bartlett ( https://archive.ph/b5B2o ): "The mysterious spectacle captured the attention of the late director Hitchcock, who phoned the Sentinel from Hollywood a few days after it occurred. He requested a copy of the newspaper be mailed to him so he could use the cover story for research as he prepared for his latest motion picture: a film adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s novel “The Birds,” which would be filmed about 140 miles north in Bodega and Bodega Bay and released in 1963. Hitchcock, who owned a 200-acre estate in Scotts Valley, said it was “merely a coincidence” that the avian attacks occurred in Capitola while he was working on the film. But in another moment of strange synchronicity, a similarly gruesome phenomenon was playing out around the same time in the exact locations where he was shooting: In Bodega and Bodega Bay, ranchers were trying to figure out what to do with the onslaught of ravens that were plucking the eyes out of their sheep and eating them, perhaps inspiring one of the most terrifying scenes in the film."
