Character error

Errors in geography 

Dr. Whitney's crates containing the rare leaves are being shipped from Brazil, and the ship on which the kothoga journeys is "registered out of Brazil." Yet in the scene where Dr. Whitney races to try to keep the crates from shipping out, the captain and the dockworkers and crew are speaking Spanish rather than Portuguese.

Factual errors 

In the book by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, the monster has been in the museum's subbasement for around seven years, making the lair filled with either partially or fully decomposed skeletons completely plausible. However, in the movie they change the duration to only six weeks. The lair they find in the movie with tons of skeletons doesn't connect with the time it took for them to become that decomposed.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The tank into which Margo falls only contains hot water, used to loosen skin from a carcass. At the time she enters this tank, it is switched off and the water is cold.
