There were technically 6 velociraptors shown in Jurassic Park; the three in the pen, the infant in the nursery and the two fossilized ones in Montana. Technically.

Intro: Toucans.  Outro: Chinese Cafe.
The Text:
This week’s text is Almost Paradigm, spanning from pages 380 – 384.
Synopsis:
Hammond is uncomfortable with Malcolm’s sepsis, and leaves for a walk believing that the park is under control now, and is safe. On his walk back to his bungalow, he stews over how unfit everyone he’d hired to work at Jurassic Park had been, blaming them all for its downfall – and taking no responsibility of his own. Then he hears the roar of the juvenile tyrannosaurus, and panics. Out of fear and anger, he winds up falling down a ravine, landing in a river below, with a broken ankle. It turns out the tyrannosaur roar is just a recording being broadcast over loud speakers, as Tim and Lex are playing around on the computer in the control room, and there was no danger after all. 
Discussions surround:
Dramatic Irony, Responsibility and Safety, Considering whether or not you should, and Almost Paradise v. Almost Paradigm.
Corrections:
I said that Nedry didn't turn off the fences in the movie - when, of course he did. Arnold also turns off the power, but Nedry did it first. My mistake. Sorry.
