Dilophosaurus (meaning "two-crested lizard") are neutral Mobs, which are loosely base on the real-life dinosaur Dilophosaurus wetherilli. This species is carnivorous, feeding on any kind of meat. They lived in the early Jurassic period, in Arizona. It is quite possibly the most edited Mob in the mod from when it was first added, to now.
Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world.
The Dilophosaurus is a medium-sized dinosaur, at roughly 2.2 blocks tall.
It has a slim, wide body, which is large compared to the average carnivore, especially for it's time. It has a long tail, and legs made for running. The arms on it, are small, like Tyrannosaurus. It's head is narrow and it's eyes are large and yellow. It has a pair of large distinct bony 2D crests on the top of it's head, of which it is notable for. It is fully grown at 8 days.
It has two Subspecies:
- The lime subspecies
- The green subspecies
Dilophosaurus, are neutral carnivores that will automatically attack farm animals. They are very fast, have 18 heath, and will attack with 3.5 hearts of damage on anything that provokes it. They are one of the more deadly carnivores, as they have a very high attack, and can run very fast.
Dilophosaurus are pack hunters since their childhood, so members of the pack will hunt together and will always be some-what close. If a member of the pack is injured by the player or if the pack is starving, the whole group will become aggressive against the player.
Dilophosaurus breed every 5 minutes. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals nearby.
Taming Ordering and FeedingEdit
Dilophosaurus are tamable dinosaurs and can be tamed in the same way as all other tameable prehistoric reptiles. The player needs to stay in a range about 6 blocks of the egg, and the hatchling will be tamed. If not, you will have to feed it, until it is tamed. Dilophosaurus can be ordered to Stay Follow and Free Roam, by a bone.
Dilophosaurus will kill and eat any farm animals that they find. They can also use a Feeder and see them within a certain range of blocks. Dilophosaurus can be hand-fed all mod meat and vanilla meat.
Dilophosaurus "Two Crested Lizard"
Dilophosaurus were carnivores, having fed on herbivorous dinosaurs, such as prosauropods and Scutellosaurus.
It is notable for the double crests on it's skull.
- Dilophosaurus Idle 1
- Dilophosaurus Call 1
- Dilophosaurus Call 2
- Dilophosaurus Hurt
- Dilophosaurus Death
- It was once based off Jurassic Park's fictional dinosaur species Dilophosaurus "venenifer" but, as of build 7.0, its poison-spitting ability and neck frill have been removed in order to make it look more realistic and closer to Dilophosaurus wetherilli
- It is still slightly unrealistic, as it's size in the mod is taller than the real life
