By now you've probably seen the trailers and ads teasing how the character Chris Pratt plays in "Jurassic World" has been training deadly velociraptors to follow his commands. Well it turns out that in real life, Pratt would go for something a lot smaller and less deadly if he were going to have a pet dinosaur.
If you were to actually have a dinosaur of your own, which one would it be?
I'd probably want something that wouldn't kill me. And it would have to be small. Maybe in "The Lost World," those ones that are like little rats? The little tiny guys? One of those, maybe two. That's what I'd want.
The only lingering question I had, which comes from the first movie, is why would you bring back raptors in the first place?
I was a collector of reptiles as a kid. I had frill-necked lizards, I had bearded dragons, I had iguanas, a savannah monitor, I had several snakes. I was big into it. All the way up until I was about 25 or something like that, I collected reptiles. And my favorite part was watching them eat. Whether they're eating crickets or whether they're eating mice or rats, I loved that. It satisfied this urge inside of me, the animal inside of me. I loved watching a lizard eat a mouse. It was thrilling. So that's why they made raptors, because we want to see giant predators eat.
