  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: In the t.v miniseries Dinotopia, the human population lives in a symbiotic relationship with dinosaurs, while in the book and movie series Jurassic Park, chaos erupts and violence prevails. According to recent trends, dinosaurs will be reborn through scientific advancements in the near future. Will we be able to create an intelligent, peace-loving strain of dinosaurs, or will we create our own demise?

Dinotopia is a fictional utopia created by author and illustrator James Gurney.  It is the setting for the book series (1992) with which it shares its name. Dinotopia is an isolated island inhabited by shipwrecked humans and sentient dinosaurs who have learned to coexist peacefully as a single symbiotic society. 

Gurney’s assignments for National Geographic magazine required him to work with archaeologists to envision and paint ancient cities that no one alive today has ever seen. This inspired him to imagine his own.
