Ever since the first Jurassic Park movie hit theaters in the early '90s, cinematic dinosaurs have been a pretty big deal. It didn't hurt that Stephen Spielberg enlisted the talents of the inimitable Stan Winston to bring his dinos to life, and with that immensely successful first offering, a film franchise was born. As of late 2020, there have been a total of five films in the Jurassic Park franchise, and each one offers new and exciting creatures to thrill and terrify audiences.

Fans have been watching and re-watching the movies for years, and many of them have picked up on some hidden and small details spread throughout the movies. A few of those eagle-eyed fans have taken to the MovieDetails subreddit to share their findings.

The more interesting of those little tidbits are listed below, so take a look and see if there's anything about the Jurassic Park films you didn't already know. If you do spot something new and interesting, be sure to give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top!
