Chasmosaurus

Chasmosaurus was an average sized ceratopsid dinosaur from North America. Like Triceratops if featured three facial horns and a wide frill. The frill would likely have been too fragile for defence, so may have been for attracting makes, or identification within their herd. Its name means 'Opening Lizard' because of the holes present in the frill bone structure to save weight. Like all ceratopsids they were herbivores.

Pachycephalosaurus

Pachycephalosaurus was a pachycephalosaur (or thick-headed dinosaur) hat lived in North America. It was one of the last non-avian dinosaurs before the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event about 65 million years ago. It's distinctive for the reinforced dome of its skull, leading to speculation that they used to fight each other by head butting. This has more recently been countered with the suggestion of flank-butting.

Triceratops

The large bony frill and three horns serves to make Triceratops one of the best known dinosaurs, and this makes the Triceratops a popular attraction. It's name means 'Three-Horned Face'. Triceratops was a herbivore. In 2010 a controversial theory was proposed that Triceratops was actually an immature form of Torosaurus, although this has yet to be proved.

Velociraptor

Velociraptors (often just referred to as 'raptors') are one of the most dangerous animals in Jurassic World. Their history with InGen has been a troubled one, in part because they have been engineered much larger than their base genome, but also because they have proved to be smart, and efficient hunters. More recently they have been part of the IBRIS project where Owen Grady (and supporting team) trained them to obey commands. Their name means 'Swift Siezer'.
