When Steven Spielberg released his film Jurassic Park in 1993, this movie was the first truly fascinating source of information about dinosaurs for many people. Except that the creators were not always guided by the principles of reliability – after all, it was not a documentary they were shooting, but a Hollywood action movie; so they had to bail on some facts known to paleontologists for a few decades. As a result, they depicted velociraptors as smooth-skinned, smart and fast creatures, and this image is still in our minds.
Ross Geller from Friends did not help matters: his stories about dinosaurs were getting the viewers down throughout all ten seasons of the icon series. Today, we have seven dinosaurs of which you’ve might not have heard of before.
