John "Jack" R. Horner



John "Jack" R. Horner (1946-) is an American paleontologist who discovered and named Maiasaura. This was an important discovery as it offered the first clear evidence that some dinosaurs cared for their young, as well as containing the first dinosaur embryos discovered, and the first dinosaur eggs found in the Western hemisphere.

Horner also served as the technical advisor to the Jurassic Park movies. He also was part of the inspiration behind the films' character, Dr. Alan Grant (played by Sam Neill).
