Creation Lab


A new Age of Dinosaurs starts here at The Hammond Creation Lab. In our state of the art facilities, the world’s greatest living paleogeneticists work to extract, sequence and assemble the DNA necessary to bring dinosaurs from the Jurassic era to Jurassic World.


The blood of Jurassic-era mosquitos trapped eternally in amber contains the dinosaur DNA our scientists need to begin recreating living dinosaurs. Talk about your fossil fuel!


Using sophisticated DNA sequencers, our scientists analyze the DNA sample to map the entire dinosaur genome, arranging millions of pieces of genetic code into dinosaur chromosomes.


Because dino DNA is millions of years old, there are usually gaps in the code. Our paleogeneticists use DNA from related species, such as birds and crocodiles, to fill in the missing sequences.


The dinosaur DNA is inserted into eggs that allow a baby dinosaur to quickly grow to maturity. The eggs are monitored and kept at conditions that simulate their mother’s nest until they’re ready for the nursery.


Life will always find a way. And when it's time, a baby dinosaur will break through the shell and emerge into the world. Then it's off to the species-unique nursery for some early maternal TLC by our dinosaur behaviorists.
