A herd of Parasaurolophus in the Brachiosaurus Enclosure

The endorsement team saw a herd of Parasaurolophus at the Watering Hole of the Brachiosaurus Enclosure, though they seemed to have been more awestruck by the enclosure's titular Brachiosaurus rather than the hadrosaurs.

It is unknown what happened to the Parasaurolophus populations on Isla Nublar after the Isla Nublar Incident of 1993.

The Lost World: Jurassic ParkEdit

The InGen Hunters captured a Parasaurolophus that their leader, Roland Tembo, named Elvis because its crest resembled a pompadour like Elvis Presley had. This individual would later be freed the Gatherers Nick Van Owen and Dr. Sarah Harding the following night it was captured by the hunters, though it is unknown if the Parasaur survived.

Jurassic Park IIIEdit

When the search group for Eric Kirby was running from the Velociraptor pack who they encountered in the InGen Compound that Billy Brennan (one of their members) stole eggs from, they ran through a mixed herd of Parasaurolophus and Corythosaurus that was outside the InGen Compound.

Later, Parasaurolophus was one of the many dinosaurs that Dr. Alan Grant and the Kirby family saw on a riverbank.

Jurassic WorldEdit

Parasaurolophus was one of the many dinosaurs that lived as an attraction for Masrani Global Corporation's Jurassic World. Because of their close resemblance to the previously created clones, it is possible that those that lived in the park originated from the dinosaurs transported to Isla Sorna in 2004. However, the images on Jurassic World's website depict them with a longer and more curved crest. On the website, their skin was a mixture of tan and brown with their crests having a mint green lining.

The juveniles, unlike the originals, had crests the size of the adults.




Spielberg Wiki has a collection of images and media related to Parasaurolophus.
