Which New Dinosaur Will Be The Star Of ‘Jurassic Park 4’?

Jurassic Park 3D is in theaters today, which may be why USA Today interviewed paleontologist Jack Horner, an advisor on the upcoming Jurassic Park 4. He says a new dinosaur will be central to Jurassic Park 4. Says Horner, “I can’t actually tell you [which dinosaur] that will be, but you’ll want to keep the lights on after you see this movie.” We’re hoping he’s not referring to Pegomastax africanus, because that’s just too creepy.

What many people tend to forget is, until Jurassic Park, almost no one had heard of a velociraptor. It was just another dinosaur on a long list of long-gone beasts. But Michael Crichton put it in his book, and it was brought to life through the genius of Spielberg’s direction and the effects team headed by Stan Winston, Phil Tippett, Michael Lantieri, and Dennis Muren. Thanks to the film, the velociraptor became one of the most popular dinosaurs out there. Behind the Tyrannosaurs Rex, of course. [/film]

Could we make some suggestions about which dinosaurs to introduce in Jurassic Park 4?

I miss Corgi Fridays.
