16 – The velociraptors in Jurassic Park had an usual sound source.
The 1993 science fiction film Jurassic Park, also directed by Steven Spielberg, used groundbreaking technology and life-sized animatronics to scare the pants off people. Of those animatronic dinosaurs were the terrifying and deadly velociraptors.
Everyone remembers the high-pitched shrieks and vocalizations of the killer velociraptors, but not many people know where that signature sound came from. Turns out, the velociraptor’s barking sound (in the kitchen scene) comes from a mating tortoise. Apparently the process is lengthy as well as loud.
