Tyrannosaurus Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY One of the most famous dinosaurs in Jurassic Park series, the Tyrannosaurus was portrayed very true to its real counterpart, such as in the second film, being parents to its offspring. In the third film, a young male only made an appearance eating and then fought with the Spinosaurus, only to be killed by it. In the first film, the Tyrannosauurus is 49 feet (15 m) long, 23 feet (7.0 m) at the hips and weighs 17,500 pounds (7,900 kg)... slightly heavier than an African elephant. Interestingly, the Tyrannosaurus is cinnamon with yellow eyes in the first film, but is jade green with dark green stripes on its nose, back, legs and tail in the other two movies.
Velociraptor Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY In all of the Jurassic Park films, the Velociraptor was one of the most common dinosaurs on the island. They were portrayed to be the most intelligent and one of the most vicious of all the dinosaurs throughout the film series. In all of the films, the characters referred to the Velociraptor simply as "raptors". The films also depict Velociraptor as significantly larger than its actual size (2' tall, 6-7' long). In the beginning of the film, Alan Grant discovers a fossil he estimates at about 6' tall and 9' long, and the raptors in the park are roughly that size.
Triceratops Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Although it has always been a popular dinosaur, the Triceratops did not really have any major roles. In the first film, it was found sick and was being cared for by Ellie Sattler (portrayed by Laura Dern) and Dr. Harding. In The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Triceratops was captured by InGen-hired hunters, and was later released, demolishing the hunters' tents.
Stegosaurus Green tickY * Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY A group of Stegosaurus saw Sarah taking some pictures of a baby Stegosaurus and believed that she was trying to harm it and charged. The Stegosaurus were also a victim of the dinosaur hunters, but along with all of the others were eventually released. The name "Stegasaurus" (a typo, obviously), was seen next to a vial in the Cold Storage Room.
Parasaurolophus Green tickY Green tickY Green tickY Red XN Green tickY These dinosaurs are seen in each movie. In Jurassic Park, they are seen along with Brachiosaurus feeding near a pond. In The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Parasaurolophus were captured by the dinosaur hunters but were freed along with the others. In Jurassic Park III, they were seen along with Corythosaurus.
Gallimimus Green tickY Green tickY Red XN Red XN Green tickY * When Hammond's grandchildren and Alan Grant were running out onto a plain, a herd of Gallimimus were startled and one was killed by a T. rex.
Brachiosaurus Green tickY Red XN Green tickY Green tickY * Red XN The Brachiosaurus was the first dinosaur to ever appear in the film (with the exception of the Velociraptor in the beginning) in what Empire called the 28th most magical moment in cinema. They were first seen feeding on tree branches and swimming in the rivers. They are later seen when Alan and the kids spend the night in a tree. They were shown only briefly in the third film. In the first novel, Tim incorrectly says that Brachiosaurus is three times larger than Apatosaurus.
Dilophosaurus Green tickY Green tickY * Red XN Green tickY Red XN Dilophosaurus was supposed to be part of the first park tour in Jurassic Park, but was not seen. When Dennis Nedry was trying to fix his Jeep and got stuck in the mud, he was savagely blinded and killed by a Dilophosaurus. While the film's Dilophosaurus was too small and had a fleshy frill around its neck as well as being poisonous, the novel's Dilophosaurus is correctly sized and lacks the frill. Dilophosaurus can be seen in the second film on the computer display inside the trailer.
Compsognathus Red XN Green tickY Green tickY Red XN Red XN This is a small deadly dinosaur in Jurassic Park. It is usually a peaceful dinosaur, but will attack when provoked. Several Compsognathus killed Dieter Stark in The Lost World.
Pteranodon Red XN Green tickY Green tickY Red XN Red XN In The Lost World one is shown briefly at the end flying over a herd. Their biggest appearance was in Jurassic Park III when Dr. Alan Grant and the others went into the bird cage where they were attacked by them, they are also seen at the end flying off the island into the clouds.
Pachycephalosaurus Red XN Green tickY Red XN Red XN Green tickY In The Lost World a group of dinosaur hunters were trying to capture one of these, but when the other dinosaurs are freed, the Pachycephalosaurus charges at the hunters.
Spinosaurus Red XN Red XN Green tickY Red XN Red XN Jurassic Park III scientific advisor, Jack Horner, decided to retire T. rex after its appearance in the previous two films, and brought Spinosaurus into the franchise for the third film. In this film, the Spinosaurus is the main antagonist, and is portrayed to be 60 feet (18 m) long, 22 feet (6.7 m) at the hips [excluding its fin] and weighing 18 tonnes (18,000 kg) - 3 times the weight of Tyrannosaurus, which weighs only 12,000 pounds (5,400 kg). Its massive body is packed with terrible power, as it is seen tearing the front of a plane off with no trouble, snapping a young male T-Rex's neck, smashing a fence with lttle effort and hauling a cage into the water.
Ankylosaurus Red XN Red XN Green tickY Red XN Red XN These dinosaurs are seen in Jurassic Park III, but don't act as any main dinosaurs in the movie.
Corythosaurus/Carinthasaurus Red XN Green tickY * Green tickY Red XN Red XN Corythosaurus, misnamed Carinthasaurus,, is seen in Roland Tembo's field guide packet. Corythosaurus is seen in Jurassic Park III as a herd along with Parasaurolophus when the characters are running through the pasture.

Apatosaurus/Camarasaurus Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Green tickY The first dinosaurs seen on the island. Some editions of the first novel replace Apatosaurus with Camarasaurus. It is replaced by Brachiosaurus in the first film and by Mamenchisaurus in the second.
Maiasaura Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Green tickY When Alan Grant and the kids are taking a nap, they discover a Maiasaura feeding near them and accidentally frighten it away.
Hypsilophodon Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Green tickY These are on the tour, and are one of the first dinosaurs seen after the Procompsognathus, the Velociraptor, and the Apatosaurus.
Cearadactylus Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Red XN In the novel, the pterodactyls in the aviary are not Pteranodons, but instead they are Ceradactylus. They dive-bomb Grant and the kids when they enter the aviary.
Carnotaurus Red XN Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY An odd dinosaur with very little importance, save only that at the beginning of The Lost World a pair of them attack Richard Levine and kill his guide. They are also capable of changing skin color like a chameleon.
Othnielia Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Red XN These small dinosaurs are referred to as "Othys", and are found in the trees.
Ornitholestes Red XN Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Levine examined a beached "aberrant form". He was not able to make a precise identification, but his best guess is that it was an Ornitholestes. However, due to the fact that chromatophores were discovered in a skin sample of the specimen, it is likely that it was instead a Carnotaurus, unless Crichton's Ornitholestes, too, would have had the fictional camouflage ability.
Mussaurus Red XN Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Only seen once, just before Levine and his guide are ambushed by Carnotaurus.
Hadrosaurus Red XN Red XN Red XN Green tickY Red XN A herd of these stampeded when attacked by the Tyrannosaurus.

Metriacanthosaurus Green tickY * Red XN Red XN Red XN Red XN Metriacanthosaurus is not seen in the movies, but its name can be seen next to a vial in the Cold Storage Room, and on the map of the park. At that time, Yangchuanosaurus was classified as a species of Metriacanthosaurus, so the dinosaur on the vial could refer to Metriacanthosaurus or Yangchuanosaurus.
Proceratosaurus Green tickY * Red XN Red XN Red XN Red XN Its name is seen in the second embryo cold storage vial, though never witnessed on the tour.
Segisaurus Green tickY * Red XN Red XN Red XN Red XN Segisaurus' name was seen briefly on a map of Isla Nublar, but it was never seen.
