Films: The Lost World (1992), Return to the Lost World (1992)
Alias: Edmontosaurus, Pteranodons (like Percival), Herrerasaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Ankylosaurus
Height/Weight: Ranges from that of a small dog to that of a large building.
Summary: We've been here before, and we'll come here again. The great plateau where the dinosaurs still live is a popular monster movie tourist attraction. So much so that they released two films in the same year all about it.
History: Somewhere in the unexplored regions of central Africa, there is a land where the dinosaurs found enough resources to survive, the natives are split down the middle as to whether they should sacrifice themselves to them, and a few diseases threaten everything. Now, Professor Challenger is out and about to find the place again, but he could end up going there twice.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Challenger's friends manage to find a different way for the tribe to live alongside the dinosaurs before they part with Percival the Pteranodon, though the little guy eventually tires of living in a zoo and returns home. Later, Challenger and company would save the lost world from greedy oil miners and a volcano that said miners accidentally activated.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 1.5-Aside from generally keeping to themselves, the models used for these creatures leave more than a bit to be desired. They're too stiff to look all that real, and ultimately, it all feels like something that should have been released a couple decades ago.
Trivia: -If this were more accurate, the team would have met Africa's answer to the T-Rex. No, not Spinosarus, but Carcharodontosaurus, or "sharp-toothed lizard". This bad boy's size was on par with the tyrant lizard king, with some saying that it grew larger.
-Challenger was played by John Rhys-Davies, who would later score big taking the role of Gimli in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
