Inaccurate Dinosaur Information/ Data

There are a few entries I've noticed to be incorrect in the game. For example: The T-Rex INGEN Database information states "To the north it is considered the dominant predator, but to the south Alamosaurus dominated."
I'm certain it should read Allosaurus, as Alamosaurus is a sauropod (not a predator).

Also: the stats on the Dracorex states it to weigh 600KG despite it being 1.1M tall. It was probably intended to say 60KG.
I'm sure there are others.
These are understandably just typos, but it would be nice if the 'facts' we are given about these dinosaurs were accurate. I was hoping to learn something about the featured dinosaurs in the game, but these inaccuracies have me doubting any information presented.
Keep in mind, these are/were real animals. Not just monsters from a book/movie.
 
Allosaurus was long extint when T.rex lived. So it wouldn't make sense to mention it as living in the south where T.rex lived in the north. Alamosaurus, while it's a sauropod it did live at the same time as T.rex. And T.rex is more common in the north where Alamosaurus isn't found.

Instead possibly mentioning Carcharodontosauria, Spinosaurids and Abelisauria would make sense as those dominated the southern continents.
 
I agree they should be corrected. I remember having a shock when reading Stegosaurus adscribed to Cretaceous period... and I stopped reading there, but I'm sure there are more mistakes, specially on the newer dinosaurs.

Exactly my point. I was hoping to learn something and so I assumed the typo meant Allosaurus. The information is not just incorrect, it's misleading.
Thank you for the info by the way.
 
There are so many errors in the Ingen data base the weigh lengh and high of some dinosaurs doesnt match like the actual model
 
Also the in the pachys,dracorex,and stygimoloch info tab it still says there vunrable to all predators even though with the new update there only prey to the large carnivores.

I also found some little issue the tsintaosaurus have a weight of 4 tons but the suchomimus have a weight of 6 tons
 
While it is written in an odd way, it is true in the T. rex database. Tyrannosaurus was the largest and most powerful animal in the northern part of Laramidia, the ancient western USA. It was a custom built armor crusher, surrounded by things it could hunt with specialization.

In southern Laramidia the landscape was dominated by Alamosaurus, a massive titanosaur. Alamosaurus is the largest North American dinosaur ever found, and to my knowledge there’s never been any evidence of Rex predation. It was invincible at adult sizes given that Tyrannosaurs were not adapted to hunt Sauropods. That is there is fossil evidence of giant herds of them and much fewer northern fauna. This is why T. rex is much scarcer in the south, hence it’s not “dominant.”

I have noticed other odd discrepancies though like the Giganotosaurus size doesn’t match the in game model. I think it still says 13.5m
