Basilosaurus is a giant prehistoric whale that looks more like a sea serpent than a whale. The animal is a new sb breed for the park and isnt going to live around the 5 dinosaur inhabited island. This huge marine predator gets a huge new area on the secon island of the 2013 park and is a main attraction there. As the inGen scientists found out, the animal lives mostly in shallower waters where it hunts big fish, squids and other bigger sea animals. Because of its small chest, basilosaurus is forced to come to the surface to catch air more often than normal wales. This measn that the animal can bee seen often on the surface. Basilosaurus has 44 huge teeth for catching and killing prey. The animals are coloured yellow at the belly with grey spots,the rest of the body is blue with grey spots. So far , Basilosaurus hasnt killed a human yet, they seem to be not very agressive to humans. Keepers reported that they have already swum with those animals. They are very intelligent and fast and agile swimmers. Basilosaurus can be agressive when its hungry, keepers reportet that they are very rough and angry when they arent fed regurarly. If so the animal attacks everything what comes near it. The attack of a hungry basilosaurus has been described as "a frenzy that even a feeding frenzy of sharks cant match". As Basilosaurus was bred, they were kept in a big water tank. They will be brought on the island in the next months (status 1st april 2012). 2 females an d 1 male have been bred so far. The males are bigger than the females. So far no offsprings have been produced by these animals, but thats due to the fact that they are only a few years old at the moment. The length of the adults has been taken from fossillized animals and our basilosaurus arent adult yet. So these measurements may have to been cha ged in the future. On the pic you can see the mael basilosaurus. The animals have been described as very curious and intelligent. They cant sing as modern whales do becasue the organ that whales have to produce these sound is missing in basilosaurus. The 3 basilosaurus will be put in a big area at the coast of the second island and it is planned that the park will offer diving trips in the basilosaurus paddock. Boating tours are thought o be a problem a the propellers may hurt the animals if they come too close. It was stated that a new sub,similar of that used in the mosasaur paddock is in the development for sub tours in the basilosaurus cage. This sub has a prob that is covered by a grille and has a quiet electro engine. Basilosaurus can hear very good and its eyes are also good developted.
