The official Jurassic World website has been updated with a description and images for the new hybrid dinosaur, Indominus Rex.
JurassicWorld.com lists Indominus Rex as follows:
Name Meaning: Fierce or Untamable King
Habitat: Jurassic World
Length: Currently 40 feet
Origin: Hammond Creation Lab
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered.
At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus‘ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed.
Indominus‘ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 mph…while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.
