Query: how was the lycene (?) contingency (as i think it was referred to), supposed to work? Specifically, the dinosaurs already running amok.
Never quite got that.
The dinosaurs had to be regularly supplied with Lysine suppliments by the staff at Jurassic Park to survive. By witholding the Lysine the creatures would all die. It also meant that if a creature were to leave the Island it would not survive for long.
Perhaps it would normally have been distributed via fresh water supply.
I guess Hammond would have insisted that Lysine should still be available to them, even though they were loose on the island, against his colleagues advice.
