Bumpy is a baby Ankylosaurus that was born in Jurassic World. Born with one large horn, Bumpy first saw Ben Pincus when hatched leading Bumpy to be close to the boy. Later on, Bumpy joined Ben and the rest of the campers from Camp Cretaceous after the escape of the Indominus rex. In Season 2, Ben also nickname her "Bumps".
Bumpy appears in the animated TV series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.
Bumpy is of dull yellow complexion, with greenish-blue coloration on her armour and the top of her legs. This is in contrast to the full grown Ankylosaurs which are dull gray in color. Due to her age, Bumpy is only around the size of a large dog, with dull osteoderms distributed across her body and a short, stumpy tail and club. Due to her premature birth, the spikes on the back of her head are asymmetrical, with the one on the right being larger and less blunt than the other (left one).
Within a few weeks, Bumpy has grown to near full-size, being slightly smaller than the rest of her species; comprised mostly of greenish-blue complexion, with dull yellow colouration on her underbelly and bottom of her legs.
As an infant bumpy imprinted on the first person she saw as her 'mother', which happened to be Ben. Upon reuniting with Ben Bumpy had experienced much growth, alternating between her herd and adopted parent during the presence of the Indominus rex.
Bumpy later stumbles across Ben, finding his body on the jungle floor. The two spend time together, with Bumpy providing protection from the Compsognathus and even finding berries suitable for consumption. Ben soon tires of Bumpy always occupying his ben (composed of large leaves) and vents his frustration out on her. The two later reunite when Bumpy saves her 'mothers' life from a near death encounter with Toro. Bumpy now serves as a force to be reckoned with, providing protection to Ben and his fellow campers, and making Hap uncomfortable.
On the second day campers arrived at Camp Cretaceous, a group of campers (excluding Kenji and Darius, as punishment for entering the Raptor Paddock) were taken to Henry Wu's lab. Soon after they arrived, Bumpy's began hatching out of her egg, and camper Ben Pincus helped her out, causing her to imprint on him. Although the two would begin to spend some time together, the group were quickly forced to leave ruining the moment, as Brooklynn was caught breaking into Wu's lab, with Wu aggressively taking her and setting her back down on the egg platform.
Soon Bumpy reunites with Ben after the group came a cross an Ankylosaurus corpse and joins them as they find a genetics lane where a scientist named Eddie (Camp Cretaceous) is hiding. Soon he tells them Dr. Wu's involvement with the creation of the Indominus rex and runs out when he finds out about the van they came by but soon the Indominus comes along and eats him.
Bumpy appears in the Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous toyline as a part of main toyline, the Snap Squad and Mini Dino collections.
Behind the Scenes
