The Pterosaurs are the secondary antagonists in Jurassic Park III and minor antagonists in Jurassic World. In Jurassic World, they consist of two species: Pteranodons and Dimorphodons. In Jurassic Park III, they only consist of one species: Pteranodons.
History[edit | edit source]
The Lost World: Jurassic Park[edit | edit source]
Some of pterosaurs are seen flying free on Isla Sorna at the end of the film.
Jurassic Park III[edit | edit source]
When Alan Grant and the survivors enters an unknown observatory, it is revealed that it was a bird cage for Pterosaurs. One of them kidnaps Eric Kirby to feed its babies. During this time, another attacks Grant and the Kirbys and Billy rescues Eric from the nest.
Then the dinosaurs grab Billy and apparently peck him to death in a river. They managed to escape from their cage after Amanda badly closed the door.
They are then seen flying freely with the helicopters which came to rescue Grant and the others.
Jurassic World[edit | edit source]
The pterosaurs are first seen when the Indominus rex shatters the glass in the Aviary, freeing all of them. Knowing that they are free, they attack Simon Masrani's helicopter. The results are the deaths of Masrani and two soldiers, and the helicopter crashing into the Aviary, exploding all the remaining pieces. The Indominus rex and the pterosaurs escape. The pterosaurs proceed to wreak havoc on Jurassic World. One Pteranodon spots Zara and catches her, but another Pteranodon attacks Zara also. Zara escapes the fight between the two Pteranodons, but falls into the Jurassic World Lagoon. Another Pteranodon spots Zara in the lagoon and attacks her several times, but the Mosasaurus rises out of the water and snaps her jaws on the Pteranodon, but also unexpectedly eats Zara.
Meanwhile, a Dimorphodon attacks Owen and tries to kill him, but Claire shoots it 3 times until it perished.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- At the climax of the movie, it is shown that it takes one bullet to kill a Dimorphodon. However, it takes 4 or possibly 5 bullets to kill a Pteranodon, and Claire shot the Dimorphodon at least 3 times to save Owen.
- If Claire shot the Dimorphodon once, she would have more bullets to kill more pterosaurs.
