Moros is an extinct genus of tyrannosauroid theropod that lived during the Late Cretaceous period in what is now Utah, United States. It contains a single species, M. intrepidus. Moros represents the earliest known diagnostic tyrannosauroid material from the Cretaceous of North America by a margin of about 15 million years.

Characteristics[]

Moros was portrayed in Jurassic World: Dominion are smaller than the real animal (provided the animals shown on-screen are not all juveniles), at about the size of ducks. Their feathers are predominantly dark gray with some whites along the back, around the neck, and along the underside. Their skins are tan on the legs, hands, and along the jaws, and their face is dark brown. They also have some reds as patches on the eyes, splotches on the hip, and from the middle to the tip of the tail.

History[]

Past[]

During a flashback of the Cretaceous in prehistoric times, a Moros was seen feeding on rotten flesh that was in the teeth of Giganotosaurus and ran off after the latter saw a Tyrannosaurus.[1]

Jurassic World: Dominion[]

Moros were recreated by Biosyn at some point prior to 2022.

One individual is first seen approaching a sleeping Giganotosaurus as it is about to clean its teeth. Dr. Sattler and Dr. Grant saw two individuals in the habitat development lab, with one being fed a gerbil. Ramsay Cole explained the species and referred to it as Moros intrepidus. Moros were likely part of the dinosaurs that got evacuated to the Biosyn headquarter after a flock of burning Giant Locusts created a forest fire. It can be assumed that Biosyn's Moros now resides in the wild or they might be continuing their lives in the abandoned sanctuary which is now a global sanctuary.

At the end of the film, a girl is seen feeding a mixed group of Moros and ducks in Washington, D.C. Watching from nearby, Alan Grant comments that he's never going to get used to it.
