Dilophosaurus venenifer (dy-LOF-oh-SAWR-us) was one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs of the Early Jurassic Period. Dilophosaurus gets its name from the two thin crests of bone on the top of its head. These were probably used as a display for courtship purposes. Dilophosaurus has been found in both the U.S. and China, which, although part of the same huge landmass, were still quite a long distance from each other.
As a more primitive predatory dinosaur, Dilophosaurus didn't have forward facing eyes to give it stereo vision. It may have used scent as an integral part of its hunting technique. It had long and slender, rear-curving teeth in long jaws and strong front arms which would have been effective in grabbing prey. It was fast - probably with a top speed of about 30-mph.. Footprints attributed to Dilophosaurus appear in groups, so it may have hunted in small packs. Dilophosaurus has the ability to spit up to 10 blocks, which explains how it ensures that it kills it’s prey. Dilophosaurus travels in packs of 5-15, and is shown to ambush it’s prey in dense jungle areas. All of this makes Dilophosaurus a beautiful, but deadly addition to your Jurassic Park.
Hunting & BehaviorEditDilophosaurus is generally thought of as weak or fragile, but in actuality, they are extremely dangerous because of their ability to spit blinding venom into the eyes of their prey. To add to their ability to hunt, they usually travel in packs of 5-15. This gives them the opportunity to ambush their prey in areas with dense trees and plants.
