nmrsnr: Or the Jurassic Park curators weren't looking to resurrect only species that roamed the Earth at the same time, and just said "fark it, I wanna T. Rex."


This is the explanation given in the book, iirc.  "Jurassic Park" was a cool name, and little else.

According to some random geek or nerd on the web (and who would know better?), the velociraptor is about the size of a large turkey. The super-smart monster killer animals in Jurassic Park are something else. Literally something else. They are the much larger and harder to pronounce deinonychus.

This is confirmed by another geek or nerd:

Looks like a road-runner, but it's twice as

in which case it will kill you a

thousand times, like a coward

I'm sure these lived just a few thousand years ago. The writers of the Bible just overlooked writing about these 30 foot tall rampaging carnivores.
