Video gamesEdit

Parasuchus

Credit to Jurassica.Net

Parasuchus only appeared in one game: The Lost World: Jurassic Park as an enemy to the Compy in an underwater cavern.

In the game it is misspelled as Barasuchus (due to grammar error); there has never been a creature reported named Barasuchus

It is also mentioned in the introscreen of the Human Hunter level. It says:

Be on careful lookout for Baryonyx, Barasuchus, and Dimetrodon.
Barasuchus

TriviaEdit

  • In Japan the term Bara literally means "rose" cause of this grammarical error in the creature's name it would literally mean "rose crocodile". This is the occasion for Japan's interpretation of its alphabet where the letter "P" does not exist and instead is replaced with a "B".
