Deinonychus. Journal of DinosaurMovie Factuality 3(2): 60-69.
•Then the in-text citation can be:
•Grant (1993) explained that the Hollywood film, Jurassic Park, did not correctly name someof their dinosaurs; the worst offender on his list was the velociraptor,
which should have more appropriatelybeen called Deinonychus.
•The Hollywood film, Jurassic Park, had some inaccuracies when it named a few of theirdinosaurs. One example of this is the velociraptor (Grant, 1993).

•Grant et al. (1993) found a significant difference in probability of getting eaten by a
Tyrannosaurus rex between groups that moved and groups that remained perfectly motionless (p <0.05).
•When faced by a Tyrannosaurus rex attack, it wasfound that groups that moved were
more likely to get eaten than groups that remained motionless (p < 0.05) (Grant et al.,1993).
