An additional food for thought; Hutchinson's _T. rex_ is the Jurassic Park one!



Incidentally, an 11 mph _T. rex_ (fully supported by the Hutchinson & Garcia
model) is moving as fast as we see in Jurassic Park.  As Steve Gatesy
pointed out back around 1995, analysis of the jeep chase in JP shows that
the _T. rex_ is in a fast walk thoughout the whole sequence: it never breaks
into a run.
