Perfect for walks at the Jurassic Dog Park.
Let's face it. We all want to be dinosaurs. And thanks to Primal Carnage, those dreams can come to fruition.
This all-new footage showcases flamethrower-on-velociraptor gameplay, the coolest combination since The Captain & Tennille. Now overlay "Love Will Keep Us Together" with the dinosaur-related carnage. Just try it.
The fourth Jurassic Park film has been stuck in development purgatory for what seems like forever, but producer Frank Marshall finally shed some light on the project in a recent interview with Collider. Marshall said fans can expect a summer release within two years, and he hopes to employ more animatronic and puppet dinosaurs than CGI, keeping in line with Steven Spielberg's original film. He also confirmed it is a sequel and not a reboot or remake.
The writing duo of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who teamed for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, recently signed on to write the screenplay.
Scientists at the UK's Liverpool John Moores University believe that methane gas emitted by sauropod dinosaurs may have had a major effect on the Mesozoic climate. Yes, this is basically a study on dinosaur farts.
Sauropods like Diplodocus, which lived 150 million years ago, probably generated methane in the same way modern cows do. The biggest difference, of course, is that a cow doesn't weigh 45 tons.
"A simple mathematical model suggests that the microbes living in sauropod dinosaurs may have produced enough methane to have an important effect on the Mesozoic climate," said Dave Wilkinson, the lead author of the study, published in Current Biology.
The study estimates that dinosaur-produced accounted for 472 million tons of methane emissions per year, which is about the same as the total of natural and man-made emissions today. Modern ruminant animals, including cows and giraffes, only account for 45 to 90 tons of that methane.
Those emissions, combined with forest fires and naturally-occurring gasfields, could have contributed to sustained warm climates throughout the Mesozoic.
