Dilophosaurus (meaning "two-crested lizard") are neutral Mobs, which are loosely based on the real-life dinosaur Dilophosaurus wetherilli. These species are 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 is slightly smaller then the Ceratosaurus, which makes the Dilophosaurus the second largest medium carnivore.
It has a slim, lean, wide body, which is large compared to the average carnivore, especially for its 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 currently has two Subspecies:
- The Green subspecies
- The Desert 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. They cannot break blocks.
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 are self-sufficient; they 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
- It used to have an alternate Subspecies for the desert, the Green and Red Subspecies. This has been replaced as of Build 7.2.
