GARY RYDSTROM won two Oscars for his sound work on "Jurassic Park". And that work included . . . RECORDING TORTOISE SEX.
Rydstrom had to come up with sounds for all the dinosaurs, which isn't easy since nobody knows what dinosaurs actually sounded like. He ended up using a lot of animal noises, including the tortoises.
He says, quote, "When the velociraptors bark at each other to communicate, it's a tortoise having sex. It's a mating tortoise.
"I recorded that at Marine World . . . Tortoises mating can take a long time. You've got to have plenty of time to sit around and watch and record them."
Here's another one that might surprise you: Some of the noises that come out of the most ferocious beast of them all, the T-Rex, were actually produced by Rydstrom's JACK RUSSELL TERRIER.
And he got that idea because of the way the T-Rex grabbed things in his mouth and shook them . . . just like dogs do. He says, quote, "Every day I would see my dog playing with the rope toy and doing exactly that, pretending like he's killing his prey."
(By the way . . . Rydstrom used audio of that same terrier eating dog food in "Terminator 2" . . . for the crunching sound when the T-1000 robot spikes a man in the eye.)
Other animals Rydstrom used sounds from included horses, geese, owls, donkeys, cows, a baby elephant, swans, baby foxes, rattlesnakes and a MALE DOLPHIN IN HEAT.
(You can read about which sounds were used for which dinosaurs here.)
