Ceratosaurus (meaning "horned lizard"), was a medium theropod dinosaur that existed during the Late Jurassic period in what is now Africa, Europe and North America.
Ceratosaurus was recreated by InGen in their lab on Isla Sorna where they were taken care of by the workers there. Like all of InGen's cloned theropods, Ceratosaurus had pronated hands. The clones had a bright red head and a yellow body with black striping. They also had no horns over the eyes like a Ceratosaurus juvenile and were slightly larger than the original with the most notable difference in size being that it was 3 meters in height rather than 2 meters.
Ceratosaurus was not planned for Jurassic Park.
Living in the wildEdit
When Hurricane Clarissa struck Isla Sorna, the InGen workers abandoned the island. The Ceratosaurs that were under their care were either freed by their caretakers or escaped on their own. In the wild, one of the ways Ceratosaurs countered the Lysine contingency was by eating herbivorous dinosaurs who in turn ate lysine rich plants.
Jurassic Park IIIEdit
Isla Sorna Incident (2001)Edit
A Ceratosaurus encountered Dr. Alan Grant and the Kirby family on a riverbank when they were digging through Spinosaurus dung. The humans thought it would attack them, but instead it went away, having been detoured by the Spinosaurus dung that was on them.
