T-Rex's Hunt?

posted by Dinofossil on - last edited - Viewed by 1.6K users
Through out most of the game, a T-Rex is a vicious hunter that will eat you if you move. My question is why? In the books and movie, it is shown that a meal of as much as a goat will stave its hunger. But in the game, you're always seeing it eating, be it a parasaurolophus or raptor, it always finds time to eat you. Why?

  • It wouldn't be as exciting if the rex didn't try to eat you... Maybe the rex was just protecting its territory and food source from a threat it didn't quite understand...
  • Thats the omly way it can defend itself, if it needs to kill, it eats the thing it wants. Starving is not factor.
  • Well what about overeating? It always swallows you, never takes you to a nest or something for storage.
  • I believe the developers did mention all of the dinosaurs having distinct personalities, the Tyrannosaurus in question being an opportunist.
  • I dont think the tyrannosaurs on isla sorna ate as much when they werent hungry they didnt hunt or eat!

    well when they were hungry anyways, yeah i like isla sorna better than isla nublar
  • I noticed, too, the T-rex seems to eat an awful lot! But then, the game wouldn't be as exciting or intense if the rex was just shown lazily napping for the whole game after one meal. The science reasoning side of me can justify it by pointing out that a warm-blooded metabolism comes at the cost of constantly having to eat, and as the timeline of the game spans a few days, one big meal per day plus one or two smaller opportunistic meals per day seems reasonable for a large tyrannosaur.

    Plus, all the eating could be all the years of suppressed hunting instinct surfacing after a lifetime of being fed tethered goats. :p

    (or maybe there was more than one T. rex...)
  • Maybe it swallows as much as it can, then regurgitates the rest into a horrific meat heap... Egh... On second thought, maybe I don't want to know.
  • hmm the tyrannosaur mistaking you as a threat highly doubt that your freaking small compared to it, but if it has offspring's yeah it would then go after you

    Less threat, more like intruder. The Tyrannosaur seems to be territorial, and it also seems to lay claim to areas pretty quickly since there aren't as many predators to contest it. Such as the Visitor's Center.
  • in the second they established that the Rex was territorial.. and that is why they would not let up and hunted down the people beyond their usual territory..
