Dilophosaurus wetherilli
Dilophosaurus wetherilli ('Two-crested lizard') is a genus of coelophysid theropod dinosaur that lived during the Sinemurian and Pliensbachian Ages of the Early Jurassic, approximately 193 to 183 million years ago.

The Dilophosaurus was a medium-sized bipedal predator, measuring about 6-7 meters long and weighing around 400 kilograms, and the findings suggest that it could hunt in groups.

Dilophosaurus had a distinctive skull with two thin semicircular bony ridges along the skull, which were probably used for display and gave it a unique appearance. In addition, it had large eyes and a strong jaw, which allowed it to feed on large prey like other herbivorous dinosaurs. It is also believed to have significant agility and speed in hunting and escaping predators.

Although popularized in the movie "Jurassic Park," in reality there is no evidence that Dilophosaurus ever had a venom-spitting ability or a fan-shaped crest. Dilophosaurus fossils have been found to have teeth marks from other theropod dinosaurs, suggesting that they engaged in fights and territorial clashes.

The Model Pose represents a specimen of Dilophosaurus sniffing the environment in search of a trace of one of the prey it feeds on.

Approximate measurements of the Dilophosaurus:
  • Scale 1:35 - 175 mm
  • Scale 1:20 - 305 mm (Dilophosaurus two pieces)
