Actually I'm pretty sure they filmed the scene where the cause was 
discovered, but it was cut for some reason. I especially remember 
seeing a shot of Tim and Ellie looking at some expended gastroliths

Useless bit of probably well-known JP trivia: That vet in the 
Triceratops scene was Gerry Harding, father of (in the novels at
