Raptors only in Episode 1!?

posted by mannyguy1 on - last edited - Viewed by 997 users

Now in the movie its stated there are 3 raptors on Nublar.

So we know that the first episode takes place during the later events of the movie. Now lets just assume that the first episode ends around the same time as the helicopter is rescuing Grant, Ellie and the other survivors.

So at this point 2 raptors have been killed by the T-rex, while the third is slowly dying in the freezer the kids locked her in.

That means that unless telltale comes up with another weird twist (ie the Troodon) there are NO MORE RAPTORS ROAMING JURASSIC PARK. Therefore none the game characters can encounter....

So I wonder how TellTale is going to handle this in order to keep the contiuity? Will they explain that there were actually more raptors? Did theye forget that there 3 raptors and not address this? Will we not see anymore raptors after episode 1?

  • It's simple. Remember, the dinosaurs are breeding.

  • There are so many issues with that you just said. It wouldn't work.

  • Simple, there were originally 8 raptors but when they introduced the big one(the male) it Killed all but two of the others. This was when the raptors had their own pen like the other animals. Once the raptors started breeding,the offspring ran into the jungle. Sometime afterward, the three adult raptors left were placed in the pen seen in the movie.

    The eggs seen in the film belong to raptors, note the V shaped footprints. There is a pack remaining on Isla Nublar.

    Surprisingly, the three raptors in the film broke out of their Lenin order to chase John Arnold. Arnold would have seen the destroyed cage and ran back to the shelter so after he walked by the raptors they started to escape.

    My point exactly.

  • The dinosaurs reproduced but the Velociraptor has a much smaller area and monitored. The Velociraptor not been fully outside this small area and state very well guarded by human guards. It is impossible not to notice new velociraptors.

    In the film also appears only one Dilophosaurus and the game there are 4 or 5 of adult size.

  • The raptors were kept in a rather small cage/pen. They would have known if they were breeding. Its not like the were roaming free like the gallis/brahio/trikes/ etc. They would have known if they were breeding specially muldoon who kept an open eye.

    If they were breeding, their offspring were probably still babies, otherwise muldoon or someone would have noticed that there are more than 3 large raptors in the pen.

    Didn't Muldoon even say that the "Big One" killed the other raptors and only left two. Which heavilty implies that he or someone is clearly keeping track of the raptors in the park.

    One of the characters even asks ellee "You sure the 3rd one's contained". She replies "yes...unless they figure out how to open doors"

    Where does it even say that raptors had their own large open pen originally? and later transferred to the one seen in the movies?

    We don't know who the eggs belonged to maybe their TROODON eggs...lol....

  • Raptors are gonna be in the game anyway so Im not gonna question it. I just know they were breeding, and I'm sticking to that.

    The dilophosaur thing is really not that hard to understand. Clearly Nedry was lucky enough to only encounter one. I can only assume the stench of Nedry's body later attracted more. Plus the tour guide voice even says "herd" implying that there is more than one dilophosaur in the park.
