Dilophosaurus (meaning "two-crested lizard") is a genus of theropod dinosaur. It contains a single known species, Dilophosaurus wetherilli, known from fossil remains found in the Kayenta formation of Arizona. This rock formation has been dated to the early Jurassic Period (Sinemurian age), about 193 million years ago. Dilophosaurus was among the largest carnivores of its time (about 7 meters long) and had a pair of rounded crests on its skull.

Wikipedia has a more detailed and comprehensive article on Dilophosaurus



Like all dinosaurs in the novel, Dilophosaurus was created by Lord Darren Penward which has found dinosaur DNA fragments in fossils and has used them as a basis for restructuring the DNA of chickens.

There is almost no physical information about this dinosaur. It was killed by a couple of people, and after it, it was destroyed by the military command.
