Dilophosaurus dinosaur facts VR 360 video education

In today’s episode of VR Jurassic Encyclopedia, we will tell you about one of the largest theropods, the Dilophosaurus dinosaur. This dinosaur inhabited what is now North America in the Early Jurassic about 193 million years ago.

Dilophosaurus was one of the earliest large predatory dinosaurs. It is estimated that this dinosaur was about 7 meters long and weighed about 400 kg. As for the structure of this dinosaur, it was distinguished by the upper jaw with a small fissure or fracture below the nostril and a narrow mouth. He also had long, curved, and thin teeth. Dilophosaurus also had a long neck with hollow vertebrae which made the neck very light.

The first remains of Dilophosaurus were discovered in Arizona in 1940. During a field study, three skeletons of this dinosaur were excavated. The two best-preserved skeletons of Dilophosaurus were excavated in 1942. In 1964, Samuel Walles discovered another new skeleton a quarter of a mile south of the 1942 finds.

As for the food of this dinosaur, I speculate that Dilophosaurus did not have a high bite strength, which is why it is believed that the dinosaur was a scavenger. Evidence of this may be the front teeth, which are likely to be tearing and tearing meat. Scientists who have been able to study the Dilophosaurus skeleton concluded that it could eat fish due to its structure of jaws and nostrils.

An interesting thing is also the myth that this dinosaur was 1.2 meters tall and spat venom. All this thanks to the movie Jurassic Park in which this dinosaur was presented in this way. While it was possible that he might have spit venom, there is no evidence that this was the case. Also, the frill around the neck of the Dilophosaurus featured in the film is fiction. None of the excavated skeletons even had a trace of a frill.
