Honestly, same. Who hasn’t seen baby Blue or a tiny Jurassic Park Compsognathus and wanted their very own prehistoric pet? That’s doubly true for DeWanda Wise, who got to get up close and personal with the various animatronics used to bring Jurassic World: Dominion. Too bad they weren’t given their own dinosaur tot ake home
