    Where DID the writers for Jurassic Park get the idea that something couldn’t be seen if it didn’t move?

    It does work for some species, especially if the predators are rather slow of brain.

    re: RM

    I don’t know of an animal that literally can’t see something if it doesn’t move, as opposed to not noticing something that is camouflaged. Movement tends to catch the attention. So do scents and sounds. Animals will often smell humans, but if one is camouflaged, it has a tough time determining exactly where you are.
    .
    For example, I was up in the ochocos near Emigrant creek and a coyote happened by, across the creek from me. It stopped, stared, cocked its head several times, apparently smelling me, but wondering what I was. I didn’t make sense to it, apparently. (I was wearing battle dress pants and a green Bundeswehr jacket.) It eventually just wandered on.
    .
    Another time I was with a group of biologists in the Alvord Desert. We scared up a Phrynosoma platyrhinos by accident. I tried to scoop up the slow-mover and it leaped back to the ground, where it froze. It blended well, but it was definitely still visible.

    Mona’s hoping that Donna’s like the ravonous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, if you can’t see it it can’t see you.

    Some predators are keyed to movement. In the book it was set down that some of the borrowed DNA to fill the sequence gaps must have had that trait.

    In the wild some animals hide and stop moving.

    Phrynosoma platyrhinos—The so called “Horned Toad.” Not common in Texas anymore. For defense they can shoot blood from their eyes at you. They can flatten their bodies to blend into the surrounding terrain. Most animals who hunt and eat them don’t have the kind of eyes and brains we have.

    Isn’t this a little like putting a paper bag over ones head in order to be invisible?
