Dilophosaurus (meaning "two-crested lizard") are neutral mobs from the early Jurassic. The AI of this dinosaur is largely based on the Velociraptor's AI. This species is carnivorous, feeding on any kind of meat. It is based off Jurassic Park's fictional dinosaur species Dilophosaurus venenifer, which has poison glands and a neck frill. Like all other prehistoric reptiles of the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world.
The Dilophosaurus is a medium-sized dinosaur with a pair of orange and yellow rounded crests on its head and an artichoke green body with a darker head and spots. It has an orange and yellow neck frill which is retracted most of the time, but that spreads out when attacking.
Taming and feedingEdit
Dilophosaurus are tamable dinosaurs and can be tamed in the same way as all other tameable prehistoric reptiles. If the egg comes from a mating between two tamed Dilophosaurus, the hatchling will be already tamed. If not, the player needs to stay in a range about 6 blocks of the egg, and the hatchling will be tamed. Dilophosaurs can be controlled by a bone.
Dilophosaurus use feeders and see them within 6 blocks. They will come for it when they find no animals around. There is another way to feed them: Dilophosaurus hold everything dropped, and eat dropped meat and fish. Right-clicking a Dilophosaurus with any kind of meat or fish works too. You can order them using bones, like with all small carnivores.
Dilophosaurus breed every 5 minutes. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals nearby. As mentioned above, the offspring of tamed Dilophosaurus is always tamed.
Like Velociraptors, Compsognathus and Deinonychus, Dilophosaurus are pack hunters since their childhood, so members of the pack will hunt together and will always be close. The pack has a simple hierarchy: the oldest is the leader. 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. They have poisonous bites that give the Blindness effect for 4 seconds. That's why the dilophosaurus is a more dangerous predator than the Velociraptor. They can also climb ladders.
