Just ahead of the new Jurassic World Super Bowl trailer, we’ve gotten our first kind-of glimpse at (a small part of) the movies new hybrid abominationsaurus. We already knew the movie would introduce genetically modified dinosaurs. Now, meet the Indominus Rex:
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered. At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed. Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.Hey, cool. Just a thought, dino-scientists: Maybe take foreshadowing into account when naming your new monstrosities. If you name a dinosaur “untamable king” HE MIGHT TURN OUT TO NOT BE TAMABLE.
Here’s a teasing glimpse of the thing that’s going to eat all the other things:
Oh, and here’s a fun fact about those terrifying teeth up there:
Cause when you’re engineering your own new killing machine, definitely make sure it’s also self-regenerating.
