It's curious that Roland wishes to hunt the male/buck Tyrannosaurus, when the female is actually larger. This could possibly stem from the fact that Roland is a professional hunter, and in sport hunting, it is the male that is usually prized for its size and adornment. Roland may not have known that it is the female that holds the size.

The Fox television network's version (aired on November 1st, 1998) includes two scenes not in the theatrical cut (see Trivia section). The first scene is an InGen meeting between Ludlow and InGen representatives, and takes place in between the opening Compy attack sequence and the Hammond scene. It contains exposition about what aftereffects the events of the first film had on InGen, and how Ludlow is taking over control of the company from Hammond. The second is in between the Hammond scene and the mission-prep scene with Eddie Carr. Set in Mombasa, it introduces Roland Tembo and Ajay Sidhu and makes it clear they have a long history working together. Both deleted scenes are included as special features on the DVD and Blu-ray, but are not integrated into the film.
