Basic Info


  • Wild: Dilophosaurus sputatrix is considered as a weird creature. When standing, its size is just over half of known Dilophosaurs, and usually escape from assaulters when getting involved in a battles with them.
  • Domesticated: Dilophosaurus is sometimes known as “guard dogs” due to their high-pitched cry and capability to assault the trespassers from distance. And they won’t be appropriate as mounts because of the diminutive size.
  • Known Information: Dilophosaurus sputatrix has several characteristics which are slightly different from the Dilophosaurus genus. They can be utilized to lure the mates and threaten preys. Dilophosaurus sputatrix usually spit venom to enfeeble and paralyze the prey prior or to killing it instead of assaulting it completely.


Dilophosaurus have a diminutive nuisance range, but if you provoke it, it will generate perilous attacks in such a short period, and also blind you with ranged poison. Dilophosaurus will not assault other dinosaurs, except Parasaurs and Pteranodons and Dodos. Instead, this creature will hunt for the killed dinosaurs and absorb the meat for the dead bodies.

Plus, no scientific evidence indicates that this creature can fire venom or they were extremely poisonous.
