team discovers that Biosyn has also sent in a team to infiltrate
Isla Nublar, now under control of the U.S. Army.
Grant, Ellie, Muldoon and Edgar continue their trek across
Jurassic Park. They come across Raul Lopez, a radical
paleontologist, and Sonya Durant, a field guide, both in the
employ of rival corporation Biosyn. The two refuse to answer
questions and are taken hostage. After an aerial attack by
Cearadactyls, Raul and Sonya turn the tables on our foursome,
but then some renegade U.S. Army soldiers arrive. After the
firefight, the soldiers are dead and the two Biosyn crewmembers
agree to partner up with the InGen crew to survive and get to
the bottom of what is going on on the island and the secret of
the green flame.

On page 10, Raul Lopez shouts, "Ay Cabron!" as Edgar and Muldoon
get the drop on him and Sonya Durant. "Ay Cabron", in this
context, basically means "a traitor" in Spanish.
Muldoon calls Sonya the only female guide west of Tanganyika.
Tanganyika is a territory within the African nation of the
United Republic of Tanzania.
Among all the other dinosaur enclosures opened up by the Army,
apparently they have also opened the aviary and allowed
Cearadactyls, and perhaps other pterosaurs, to fly free over
Isla Nublar. Wouldn't there be some hesitation about letting
creatures, which could end up flying to the mainland?
On page 17, Sonya refers to Edgar as Muldoon's bwana. "Bwana" is
Swahili for "master".
