During his dig in Montana, Grant makes three mistakes: First, he unearths a velociraptor in Montana. Velociraptor remains have only been found in Asia. Second, he declares that velociraptor was a pack hunter. All velociraptor remains have been found alone, indicating exactly the opposite. Both of these, however, are accurate claims about Deinonychus, on which Michael Crichton modeled his velociraptors. Thirdly, Grant says that raptor means "bird of prey." It is actually Latin for thief. (The English word rape has the same root, and originally meant theft.) The first velociraptors were found around egg nests, and paleontologists thought it was an oviraptor (egg thief). They subsequently concluded that the eggs were in fact velociraptor eggs, indicating that the animals cared for their young, rather than abandoning them, as many had previously thought.
The credits are in a jungle typeface.
