What I'd expect to happen is the United Nations would make the island under their protection and the navy will make sure of it no folks will go there so they don't get themselves killed. I also expect only authorized people would be allowed to go to the island mostly for study.

Well, aside from the intuitive implausibility of a comparatively small landmass being home to such large animals, any of the scenarios with relict non-avian dinosaurs would really stand out, and it's not hard to see why. While the entire island as whole would generate a storm of hype, confirming that "dinosaurs aren't extinct after all!!!" would definitely be one of the most outstanding and fundamental takeaways regarding the island's fauna. Obviously though, discovering a gigantic primate would rival that as well.

And on another, small note, I'd imagine we would have to deal with assertions made by any creationists who believe that the discovery of living dinosaurs would somehow disprove evolution.
If we technically want to be realistic. Then the 1976 version of Skull Island is probably the most realistic as besides King Kong, this giant snake he fought and the natives. It's pretty much a barren wasteland.
