Anybody notice that INGEN might have been named after the oviraptorid

Also, any comments on dinosaur behavior within JP or LW must founder on the
fact that the creatures were genetically engineered with lots of frog DNA and
whatnot, and so would behave in whatever manner the moviemakers wanted,
irrespective of how dinosaurs might actually have behaved pre-65 Ma.
