[Jurassic World](movie:32752) has created one of the best movie websites in recent memory with its fully functional theme park guide at jurassicworld.com. If you register and pop in from time to time, it'll let you know which parts of the website have been updated since your last visit. Recently there were six new interesting dinos added to the Dinosaur page along with a behind the scenes look at the Hammond Creation Lab.

You've got to admire the verisimilitude of this video, especially that music they use, and the website overall. If you passed this youtube clip along to someone who had no idea about Jurassic World or the Jurassic Park books or movies, I wouldn't blame them if they came away with a lot of questions about whether or not some company was really hatching dinosaurs somewhere.

Suchomimus

You'll be able to lay your eyes on the 3 ton Suchomimus if you take the Cretaceous Cruise at Jurassic World. But seeing as the dinosaur has an Aggression Index set at Medium and it is indeed a carnivore - well, just be sure to keep your hands and arms inside the boat at all times. You wouldn't want Suchomimus to mistake you for a fish as it has a distinctive foot long claw on its thumb that it uses to spear its prey.

Baryonyx

Speaking of claws, Baryonyx's name is loosely translated to mean "heavy claw" and is the master hunter of lakes and rivers and, of course, Jurassic World's Cretaceous Cruise area. The two ton beast is distinctive for its crocodile-like head and a prowess at fish hunting that makes Baryonyx the envy of all the bears in its neighborhood.

Dimorphodon

Dimorphodon is one of the aviary dinosaurs at Jurassic World. It's one of the parks pterosaurs and Dimorphodon's big eyes and sharp talons make it highly successful at spotting and grabbing fish while its big jaws are quite suitable for catching insects. Yes, this pterosaur is indeed an 8 foot flying carnivore with an Aggression Index at the Medium level, but I'm sure Jurassic World has taken foolproof security measures to make sure these guys would never pose a threat to the theme park patrons.

Edmontosaurus

While Edmontosaurus is notable for being one of the few dinosaurs that can chew, this four ton relic from the Cretaceous period is an herbivore. It's duck-billed head also gives it a unique look that sets it apart from the other dinosaurs roaming around in Jurassic World's Gallimimus Valley enjoying a veggie snack. It also has long forearms that are good for grabbing branches but can also turn Edmontosaurus' stance into a quadruped, which can help it escape from predators like the T-Rex.

Metriacanthosaurus

Metriacanthosaurus is one of the nastier customers you'll meet at at Jurassic World's Cretaceous Cruise. With an Aggression Index firmly in the High register, it's also one of the quicker and more agile bipedal carnosaurs that you'll run into. Well, let's hope you don't run into this 26 foot tall spiny theropod - at least not outside the safe, completely secure confines of the park's Cretaceous Cruise.

Microceratus

One dinosaur that could be quite a treat to actually run into at Jurassic World is Microceratus. This little fellow could actually be the world's smallest dinosaur. This little biped weighs in at just 14 pounds and stands only 2.5 feet tall. It has a little beak shaped head that gives it all the advantages it need for a good herbivore diet.

Cretaceous Cruise is not at all unsafe, nope.

Well, there you have it. I mean, look at that image above. That's a picture of the park's Cretaceous Cruise. What could go wrong on a kayak trip down Isla Nublar's river when there's only a huge crocodile headed dinosaur and this Metriacanthosaurus around to confuse you for some sort of delicious fishy treat? Indeed, what could go wrong?
