Yes, you are indeed right about _Tianchisaurus_ being formerly named
"Jurassosaurus" as well as the part about the species name,
"nedegoatpeferima". The name was made by taking the first 2 letters
of each the last name of each cast member. Here's a list:
Sir Richard ATtenborough
the 3 (important) cast members they left out were Samuel L. Jackson,
B. D. Wong, and Wayne Knight.
