Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  Family Dilophosauridae
  Genus Dilophosaurus
Dilophosaurus was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived in the early Jurassic period, between about 200 and 190 million years ago. Fossils of the animal have been found in China.

Dilophosaurus was about 20 feet (6 meters) long, and about 5 feet (1.5 meters) tall at the hips. It weighed around 1,000 pounds (450 kilograms).

The most unusual feature of Dilophosaurus are the pair of crests on its skull (it is from this feature that it gets its name, which means "two-crested lizard"). It is thought that these crests were probably used for display, probably attracting mates, and may have been large in one sex than the other.

Dilophosaurus featured in the first of the Jurassic Park movies (and in the Jurassic Park novel). In the movie depiction, it appears a bit of creative license was used:
  • The Jurassic Park version of Dilophosaurus is shown as much smaller than the actual animal.

  • The Jurassic Park version of Dilophosaurus is shown with a expandable neck-frill, and with the ability to spit poison - there is no evidence that the real animal had either of these features.
Although the Jurassic Park version of Dilophosaurus may not be 100% technically accurate, it has proven to be popular - and some video games and even music videos appeared to have been inspired by the depiction.
