Triassic Park Page XIII

That's a wrap for this storyline! Makes me wonder how many Caviramus it would take to get a full-sized Therizinosaurus airborne in actuality. A worthy research topic for someone's graduate thesis, no doubt.

Triassic Park Page IX

This parodies the song "Chaos" from the entertaining fanmade Jurassic Park Musical.

Likely didn't expect a TetZoo Time character revelation on Raptormaniacs, did you? King Preter thinks that "ephemeral" means "difficult to see". (TetZoo Time exists as a comic in the Raptormaniacs universe; it's not that contrived.)

CAMP stands for Central Atlantic Magmatic Province, a giant volcanic region associated with the breakup of Pangaea and the end-Triassic extinction. Signor-Lipps effect describes the phenomenon that the fossil record is generally not complete enough for us to ascertain to full temporal range of a taxon, which, among other things, can make mass extinction events appear more gradual than they really were.

I have tried something new for this one: a recorded demo of the song parody. There is no musical accompaniment, but I hope it is helpful to readers who are unfamiliar with the song and/or cannot get the lyrics to fit. It's only me singing in my own voice and should not be taken to indicate the canon voices of my characters. I do not usually pronounce "Ostrom" the way I do in the song; I appear to have subconsciously changed it to something I found easier to sing.

Triassic Park Page VIII

I considered having a second encounter with the Saurosuchus after Ebeff and May's arrival to better mirror the events of the film, resulting in Ebeff subduing the Saurosuchus by trapping its head under his foot. It didn't make the cut in the end.
