Indominus rex is unique in the dinosaur world, in that it is a ‘hybrid’ genus created by combining multiple existing genera, including Deinosuchus, Giganotosaurus, Carnotaurus, Velociraptor and the infamous Tyrannosaurus rex, as well as tree frogs and snakes. As such, Indominus rex is perhaps the most fearsome dinosaur of all, boasting Giganotosaurus’ size, Velociraptor’s intelligence and speed, Tyrannosaurus rex’s power and aggression, plus further traits from tree frogs and cuttlefish that allow it to hide its thermal signature.
American geneticist Dr. Henry Wu began the development of the new genus in 2012, after Jurassic World owner Simon Masrani requested the creation of a new, exciting genus to increase ticket sales. Indominus rex’s conception has been fraught with controversy, however – the genus has proved far more intelligent than anticipated, making worldwide headlines in 2015 when it escaped its paddock and went on a rampage across the park.
Due to its synthetic origins, experts are still learning about Indominus rex’s behavior, diet and natural habitat – it was raised in isolation so that researchers could study it. Indominus rex’s ferocity and intelligence make it the apex predator of its habitat.
