The Indominus rex (meaning ‘fierce or untamable king’) was InGen's first genetically modified hybrid dinosaur. While it was intended to be a spectacular new attraction to increase guest numbers and corporate sponsorship, it also formed part of a secret program to create weaponized dinosaurs. The events in the 2015 Isla Nublar incident proved to be disastrous for the park with many guest casualties, as well as dinosaur losses and escapes as a result.
Dr. Henry Wu created the Indominus rex using DNA from a number of dinosaur species. These included Giganotosaurus, Majungasaurus, Carnotaurus, Rugops, Therizinosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptor. DNA from modern animals like cuttlefish, tree frogs and pit vipers were also utilized.
Indominus rex was an engineered hybrid and had no natural ecology. It was raised isolated (after killing its sibling) in its own paddock.
