Feeding Crane (S/F)

The feeding crane was a machine on Isla Nublar that was used to safely feed the Velociraptors in the holding pen.

The device is used to transport food, including live cattle, into the holding pen. A special hatch at the top of the cage opens to allow the food to be brought in.

Alan Grant and company witnessed a live steer being lowered into the raptor pen via the crane, which was promptly devoured by the raptors. Minutes later, the crane retracted, with the steer gone and the crane in pieces.
