there's an exuse for this. if you've read 'The Lost World' (Jurrasic Park 2)
you'd know that the creatures were bred/raised elsewhere, then brought to
Jurassic Park for display.

there's a bit in Lost World about this, about how Alan Grant was wrong and
that Rex would have to see still things in order to be an effective
predator. doesn't fix the movie performance, tho.... 

come to think of it, was there any mention in JP the book about t-rex not
seeing still things?

that was a little bug by Nedry; it allowed him access to any area of the
park when the power went out.
