Jurassic Park Wiki

The word Theropod is used to describe many dinosaurs. Theropod dinosaurs shared a number of characteristics:

  • They were mostly all carnivores (meat-eaters)
  • They all used their back legs for walking and each foot had three toes
  • Most walked exclusively on two legs
  • They had hollow limb bones
  • The humerus (upper arm bone) is less than half as long as the femur (upper leg bone)

There are a number of other, more technical characteristics, but these are the basics.

Theropods are the stars of Jurassic Park, namely because they eat meat, and (in the franchise's case) that includes humans.
