Jurassic World was awesome. It features a hyperintelligent raptor-tyrannosaur hybrid, velociraptor mercenaries, and a motorcycle-riding, raptor-taming Chris Pratt.
To get some scientific insight into the films, I spoke with two people who know a thing or two about dinos:
Bhart-Anjan Bhullar, soon-to-be-professor at Yale, who recently made headlines (along with his doctoral adviser Arhat Abzhanov) by reversing some aspects of bird evolution to re-create a dinosaur-like snout in developing chickens.
Steve Brusatte, a professor at the University of Edinburgh, an expert on dinosaur evolution, and currently the scientist behind the National Geographic show T. rex Autopsy.
Despite the stereotype of scientists as heartless nerds lacking a sense of humor, both scientists really enjoyed Jurassic World.
