OK. let's play the psychology game.  This hunter would want a male 
if he didn't know anything about current dinosaur-theory and assumed 
that the male was bigger.  Then again, maybe INGEN noticed the 
(entirely plausible) fact that male tyrannosaurs were larger.  I 
don't believe that a pack of Virginia Slims or a Cosmo have been 
found with the robust morph yet, so the jury's still out . . .

What about the errors in logic in the movie (don't read further if 
you don't want to know), the biggest one being how the T-Rex on the 
boat got out, ate the crew, and then locked itself back in the hold?  
How did it eat the guy in the cabin?  How was a ship with a dead 
crew guided back right to port?  Hmmm . . . pretty sloppy.  Loved the 
movie otherwise though.
