Dilophosaurus is a Jurassic World dinosaur that was released in 2015.
This meat-eating dinosaur first walked the Earth during the early Jurassic Period, about 193 million years ago. The two rounded, bony crests on top of its head provide a bright display to other dinosaurs in the wild. Jurassic World visitors beware – if a Dilophosaurus extends its neck frill, then it may be about to spit its gooey venom at you!
- The Dilophosaurus lived during the early Jurassic Period, before mosquitoes are currently confirmed by the fossil record to exist. If Jurassic Park was able to find any viable DNA specimens, there would have been very little to go on. This would mean that there would be more gaps than normal in the DNA sequence, subsequently filled by more frog DNA. This could explain why the Dilophosaurus are so different from their prehistoric counterparts, far more so than other dinosaurs.
- Dilophosaurus is the only dinosaur included in the sets that does not make a physical appearance in the movie. It does however, have a short cameo as a hologram.
