DescriptionDilophosaurus was one of the earliest large carnivorous dinosaurs (theropods). The prominent, arched crests on the top of its skull were probably used for display and may have been brightly coloured. Long claws on its back toes would have served as formidable weapons. Dilophosaurus may have lived and hunted in small packs.
