1. Lawyers are the bacon of the dinosaur world.

That’s not to say that a towering tyrannosaurus doesn’t still enjoy a nice, juicy plate of pig meat. Mmmm, bacon.

2. Arm length isn’t everything.

T-Rex don’t need elbows to take care of business.

3. Dino boogers are the worst boogers.


4. Velociraptors love ice cream. LOVE it.

Asteroids didn’t wipe out dino-kind. Brainfreeze did.

5. Dinosaurs have but one natural predator: cowboys.

The history books conveniently left out how often cowpokes had to rustle raptors down the ol’ frontier.

6. “Rawr” doesn’t mean “I love you” in Dino Speak.

It means “I’m a 7-ton carnivorous killing machine and I’m going to eat you.”

7. It’s not the size of the dino in the fight…

…it’s the size of the fight in the dino. #inspiringdinofacts #sotrue

8. JK, size totally matters.

Especially if you’re a nuclear-powered mega-dino just trying to make it in America.

9. All dinosaur fossils are just napping.


10. Triceratops give the best hugs.

Triceratops hugs > velociraptor hugs. Trust us.

The classic returns in jaw-dropping realD 3D and IMAX 3D. Don’t miss Jurassic Park in 3D, in theaters April 5th.
