Top Ten Dinosaurs that Became Famous Because of the Jurassic Park Franchise

The Top Ten
1 Velociraptor Velociraptor is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period.

Why is it number one, well look at what happened to dino 'culture' after JP, any kind of raptor like dino was given the JP look, every movie with dinosaurs, they need to have aJP looking raptor creature. Video games, don't get me started, in FPS', that's all your shooting, it may not be a velo but it looks like one.

2 Spinosaurus Spinosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what now is North Africa, during the lower Albian to lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period, about 112 to 97 million years ago.

After JP3, Spino became the ultimate killer dino, every movie, every video game especially has spino be a boss or look like a total badass. The actual creature was probably less intimidating, a fish eater that hung around the water. The spine could have been used for a lure or mating ritual. Also a spino couldn't fall over because if it did, it would break its 'sail' aka it spine, and would die. Another thing that kickstarted because of JP3, look at the design of spinos after JP3, and the ones before, very different.

3 Dilophosaurus

A dino that most people never even heard of before JP books/movies came out, everyone associates this dino with the frill and the poison spit, but truth is, the actual creature never had this. It was an early Jurassic carnivore that grew around 20 ft long. Also look at video games, he is in there as well spitin' away.

4 T-Rex

Yeah it may have already had popularity, but JP movies set in stone the idea the T-rex is the king of the dinos

5 Gallimimus
6 Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived in North America during the Late Jurassic, about 154–153 million years ago.
7 Pachycelaphosaurus

The dome headed thing that rams into things, LWJP and JWFK helped etch this guy into dino lore

8 Compsognathus Compsognathus is a genus of small, bipedal, carnivorous theropod dinosaur. Members of its single species Compsognathus longipes could grow to around the size of a turkey.
9 Pteranodon Pteranodon lived during the late Cretaceous geological period of North America in present-day Kansas, Alabama, Nebraska, Wyoming, and South Dakota.
