The fourth movie of The Jurassic Park franchise takes place two decades after the preceding installment’s setting. Here, dinosaurs have become a rather common sight, having been available for viewing for decades. Geneticists then, instead of simply cloning more of the species the park had, decide to make a new attraction, something new and fresh to their collection – something with “more teeth”. The Indominus rex or the “Fierce or Untamable King” was created through gene splicing from different dinosaur and other animal species. This carnivorous giant is a hybrid of Gigantosaurus, Majungasaurus, Carnotaurus, Rugops, Therizinosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, cuttlefish, tree frog, pit viper, and other unspecified present-day animals.

The chalk was formed due to calcium carbonate left behind by decomposed shells of microscopic algae that populated the Seaway. This layer of the Niobrara contains much evidence of life of vertebrates and aquatic life, including birds. The limestone layer is a thick layer of limestone separated from the chalk layer by shale. The limestone layer also contains many fossilized remains, but is best known for having marine reptiles that have been preserved rather well. The currents from the different seas as well as the draining of surface water into the seaway were important in the formations of these layers and the fossilization of marine life (Colorado Parks and
