Jurassic Park - T-Rex Teeth Fiasco
If you watch as the T-Rex's mouth goes down in front of the two kids, you can see 37 teeth. But actual T-Rex's have 38! I sure hope someone got fired for that blunder! WHOOPS!

A Great White loses an average of 1 or 2 teeth per day, their back row teeth are constantly pushing forward, thus losing the front row. This is a normal thing, I know, sharks do not have much in common with T-Rexes, except the fact that they are almost as prehistoric. Maybe(I stress the MAYBE) T-Rexes are/were the same, after all, the point is, WHO CARES AND WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU DOING COUNTING THE TEETH? Did you research this? I bet you did, you are one SAD person.

Hey hey now! Also in that very same scene, you forgot to mention that a DINOSAUR is lunging at them. Now if I can remember correctly, DINOSAURS died out 65 million years ago. now if this film was set in 1994 or 95 then there is NO way that a dinosaur could be present at that very time... (What possesed you to count the teeth?)

uh Pochette and shawn. I think that Brendan may have been sarcastic in his comment. Someone was saying the film wasn't realistic because the T-rex was missing 1 tooth which how or why he counted is beyond me. Brendan was simply joking that if a tooth is a reason to think the film is unrealistic then surley dino's walking about now is. It's sarcasm,

The dinosaurs in the film cannot be called real dinosaurs, not just because they are animitronics and computer images but also a lot of their DNA is from frogs, if their entire breeding process can change i'm sure their amount of teeth could be changed just as easily

I read an interview with the actress who played the little blonde girl... she said that in a take of (what I think was) that scene, the head actually slammed into the ground so hard that one of its teeth popped out. Maybe they didn't bother to put the tooth back in before the next usable take?

I think you may have miscounted teeth because that is a pretty close number

helloooo...if these dinosaurs were genetically engineered, they could have flaws, besides they used frog DNA, frogs don't have teeth.

Bilbo, there are like tons of reasons why it has 37. It got injured and lost it in battle, it fell out while eating, etc. It's those tiny imperfections that make spielberg's movies great. WHOOPS!!

All I am going to say is someone should slap you for even saying this. Also for thinking to count the teeth to begin with.

In this magazine i was reading, someone iterviewed tim, and he said"In the scene where the T-Rex attacks our car, the T-Rex fell over and broke a tooth. They did not want to take the time to make another tooth, so they finshed filming with out the tooth".

Ponchette is right. You basically said it was a slip-up to have dinos in present day in this movie.

Plus, why would the crew intentionally put an odd number of teeth like 37 on the T-rex, instead of 38. It's obvious they knew how many teeth it had.

Uhh, Brendan, the movie was ALL ABOUT a guy who BRINGS BACK the dinosaurs through a mosquito's DNA...that's why there's a dinasaur lunging after the main characters in the movie which was set in the 90's...ok?

I think that is very observant about the T-Rex's teeth but there are to many variations of why there was a missing tooth. And if we mist be picky I must that the T-Rex is now thought to be a scavenger not a predator. Due to it's size and bone construction, it is most likely it was a very slow animal not to mention such small arms with little use. If it fell it would be doomed, with little chance of surviving. It had quite poor vision with the way it's eyes were set on the sides of it's head, let alone seeing in the night. This animal ironically was not a king but a thief. And this comes from the man who inspired the book.
