Nothing is wrong with bringing a terrifying hairy 6 ton mammoth back from the dead, right? I believe that raising extinct species from the dead is a dreadful idea. Many examples are from disease carriers to environment changing. To start, “Animal welfare: People could be exploiting animals for solely human purposes, and may cause individuals of the de-extinct species harm,” stated by Breanna Draxler author of 5 Reasons to Bring Back Extinct Animals (And 5 Reasons Not To). This was to shows how some of these animals would be hunted if they were come back to life.
Merlyn turns Wart into a snake, and meets T. Natrix. T Natrix tells Wart a old story about the dinosaurs. There were two types of dinosaurs, a bloodthirsty carnivorous dinosaur and a peaceful herbivore. The carnivorous dinosaurs eventually went extinct after losing a war with the herbivores, and eating themselves because of starvation and their bloodthirsty needs. Eventually, there was one herbivore left.
Travis was successful in convincing Eckles, however, when the meet the dinosaur Eckles loses control of his actions and leaves the path. When the others discover that Eckles left the path, they hope all he did was kick up some dirt. Although when they return to the future and it has changed, they learn that Eckles had killed a butterfly. By killing something so small, and seemingly pointless, the whole future was different and the consequences were irreversible. The path in the setting was meant to prevent any changes in the future from occurring, but by stepping off it, it created the overall theme of the story.
The Sound of Thunder by Ray Bradbury is a futuristic science fiction short story about a hunter named Eckles, he visits the Time Safari, a company that sends you to the past. Eckles travels back in time with a group of three to shoot and kill a prehistoric dinosaur. Nethergrave is about a young boy named Jeremy, who plays sports, and has a group of internet friends. Later, Jeremy is faced with a decision whether to stay in the real world, or leave it for the virtual introduced by a great being. This critical response will be comparing, and contrasting both stories by making points such as, how the stories fit into the science fiction genre, the characterization between Eckles and Jeremy, the theme/message of the stories, dialogue, and writing style.

The author of the Jurassic Park is Michael Crichton. This book is about a zoo with genetically engineered dinosaurs. The main characters are Alan Grant, John Hammond, Ian Malcolm, Ellie Sattler, Lex Murphy, and Tim Murphy. The park was still in stages of opening but the investors want the park to have visitors before the park opens. Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler go to the park to see if it is ready for the public eye.
Straining for months in his laboratory, Victor Frankenstein set to achieve a single task: create human life from inanimate objects. He imagined a perfect being of “gigantic stature” (Shelley 32), who would better mankind; he sought for his new species to “bless [him] as its creator and source” (Shelley 32); he worked to “discover so astonishing a secret” (Shelley 31) of human life itself, unlocking the mystery of science. After years of ardently studying and preparing for his creation, Frankenstein finally brought the creature to life. Unfortunately, the monster he procured was unlike anything he could have predicted. The “beauty of his dream vanished” (Shelley 35) when the yellow-skinned, horrendous monster with dark, hollowed lineaments arose from the night to eventually destroy both Frankenstein’s sanity and family.
All of the Ray Bradbury stories that I read share common traits. To begin with, all of the stories have fear in them. “The Fog Horn” has this example when monster attacks McDunn and Johnny and they get scared for their lives. “In The Veldt,” the kids lock their parents in the room that comes alive and the parents are terrified right before they get attacked by the surprisingly real lions. In “A Sound Of Thunder,” Eckles gets frightened right when he sees the dinosaur that will attack them.
One of those things happened to be stepping off of the trail. Eckles stepped off of the trail and so when they got back to the Machine they told him the only way he could come home was if he went and stuck his arms up to his elbows into the dinosaur’s mouth and cut out all of the bullets they shot at the dinosaur. He went and did that but on his way back to the Machine Travis shot him. Now did Eckles purposely get off of the trail, or did the dinosaur being so close
These eating machines don’t provide a benefit to the Everglades, instead, they harm the ecosystem. The presence of Burmese pythons are changing the Everglades because they are forcing many humans to hunt the pythons and Burmese pythons are wiping out native species. The only solution to the Burmese python crisis is to convince people to go out and hunt them. “Python Challenge” is an advertisement that uses appealing phrases and prize money to convince many citizens to hunt and kill these pythons.
This article stood out to me because I used to want to be a Paleontologist and I am also a big fan of the Jurassic Park movies. This article takes a look at the Velociraptor and the genetic makeup as well as phenotypes that it displays. A recent discovery showed that the real Velociraptor was a lapdog-sized predator covered in feathers. In Jurassic park the velociraptors are shown as raptors that are bigger than humans and have a rough scaly skin. If you look at the arm bones of Velociraptor you can see a row of bumps, identical in size and shape to the quill knobs of living birds: the anchor points for big wing feathers...” These are very similar structures found on both birds.
Micheal Crichton’s 1990 novel “Jurassic Park,” is a science fiction cautionary tale of how reckless experimentation without proper oversight can lead to catastrophic results. The novel revolves around an isolated Costa Rican island and the dangerous experiments taking place there. When a series of mysterious animal attacks begin to occur on mainland Costa Rica, a connection is made between the attacks and the “biological reserve” on Isla Nublar. Two paleontologists Allan Grant and Ellie Sattler are among the group whisked away by billionaire John Hammond to the island for a weekend. The island is revealed to be Jurassic Park, a themed park showcasing the world’s first cloned dinosaurs.
I am comparing and contrasting jurassic park and alice through the looking glass i have several similarities and differences and i shall give several examples. the theme/plot lie for jurassic park is that you should not mess with nature. I know this because in the movie the scientists “make” a new dinosaur which they should not do eventually the dinosaur gets out of its cage and every one is in a panic but at the end they kill the dinosaur and they abandon the park. Then they are all home safely. The theme/pot line in alice through the looking glass is you should never lie.
