Roland (Pete Postlethwaite) refers to the Tyrannosaurus Rex as "the greatest predator there ever lived". While the Jurassic Park movies depict the T-Rex as an active hunter, the question whether the T-Rex was a predator or a poacher/scavenger has been (and still is) the subject of a decades-long debate. Opponents of the predator theory maintain that a T-Rex's arms were too short to hold down a prey, and that it would not have been able to run as fast as its prey due to its bulk; additionally, its excellent sense of smell would serve to sniff already dead prey over large distances. Supporters of the predator theory point at the fact that T-Rexes had depth perception, a trait seen mainly in predators so that they can estimate the distance to their prey. Also, fossilized skeletons of other dinosaurs have been found with healed bite marks from T-Rexes on them, which would indicate that a T-Rex had hunted them while they were alive rather than dead.

According to Hammond, Isla Sorna is supposed to be about 80 miles from Isla Nublar. According to the map, Sorna is the central island of "The Five Deaths", but none of the others are Nublar, and no other Islands are around for hundreds of miles. See more »
The Lost World: Jurassic Park is an above average sequel. I just saw it for the third time and I will still continue to fight for it. The script (although containing flaws) is a billion times better than its sequel, Jurassic Park 3. When I look back at the three times I've seen it (Theater, VHS, DVD) I saw very few flaws in an overall exciting movie. The biggest flaw is that the "wonder and amazement" were at a low level. This is mainly because we were exposed to it in the first film and it is hard to keep things fresh. Other than that, this film is one of the better sequels ever. Great action and adventure, (3 of 4 stars)
