Dilophosaurus "Venenifer"

Height: 11.7 feet
Weight: 484 pounds
Length: 25 feet
---------------
Coloration:
Male: Vibrant shades of pure olive green, with around six vibrant red blotches marking the belly region. Leading from the closest from red blotch is a red stripe going up to the skull, and leading up to the V-shaped crest and ending at the spike on the crest. A pure white stripe borders along the red stripe and blotches, and ends at the tip of the tail. Underbelly is colored pale yellowish white, and the eye's are pure yellowish-amber with circular black pupils. Crest is dark olive green with two red splotches under the white stripe. Frill is colored olive green, and is marked with red, purple, green and orange stripes and spots.
Young Male: Lighter olive green with smaller, dull red blotches. White stripes around the blotches are smaller, duller and have shades of gray in them. Crest on the head has a yellowish red blotch with a white border. Frill is colored the same as the adult male, but duller and less stripes and blotches. Eye's are colored dull yellowish amber with roundish black pupils. Underbelly is pale yellowish white.
---------------
Female: Dullish bright olive green, with about six dull red blotches marking the belly region. Leading from the closest from red blotch is a red stripe going up to the skull, and leading up to the V-shaped crest and ending at the spike on the crest. Pale white stripe borders along the red stripe and blotches, and ends at the tail-tip Underbelly is pale yellowish white, and the eye's are yellowish-amber with roundish black pupils. Crest is dark olive green with two red splotches under the white stripe. Frill is colored dull green, and has red, yellow, orange and purple markings.
Young Female: Pale olive green with smaller, dull red blotches. White stripes around the blotches are smaller, duller and have shades of gray mixed in. Crest on the head has a yellowish maroon blotch with a pale white border. Frill is colored the same as the adult female, but duller and less stripes and blotches. Eye's are colored dull yellow with roundish black pupils. Underbelly is pale yellowish white.

Preferred Habitat: Most of the Dilophosaurus population prefers to live in tropical, warm areas like the swamp-like West Delta, and others live in the Dense Jungle and areas around the EALC.
Diet: Young Dilophosaurs tend to hunt smaller prey than the adults, despite them having the ability to spit venom. Usually, young Dilophosaurs hunt prey like Thescelosaurus and Gallimimus Bullatus, as well as try their luck on hunting small hadrosaurs like Corythosaurus. Adult Dilophosaurus usually hunt smallish hadrosaurs like Corythosaurus and Saurolophus. Both will raid dinosaur nests for eggs and hatchlings.
Family: Dilophosauridae
Social Structure: Dilophosaurus tend to be found living in breeding pairs, family packs and hunting groups. Hunting groups can have as many as eight members, and are often led by a dominant pair. It is quite uncommon and a rare sight to find a Dilophosaurus alone.
Description: Medium-sized, bipedal carnivore. Average-sized, three-fingered forearms tipped with sharp and strong claws. Long, thin tail used for balance when running and used like a rudder when swimming in dense water. Thick, strong hind-legs with three toes on each foot which can lash out at attackers. The most notable feature of Dilophosaurus is the robust, V-shaped crest running along the top of the skull. In males the crest is the most colorful and the strongest. During the breeding season, the crest is used to display to females and intimidate rival males. Along with the crest, the frill which is tucked against the neck tightly is used as well to display to females and intimidate males, but also try to intimidate and scare off attackers.
Behavior: Nicknamed the "Spitter" by InGen staff and scientists, Dilophosaurus "Venenifer" gets their nickname from their ability to spit a toxic venom as far as sixty feet away from their location. The venom is black, gooey and sticky in appearance, and because of it's sweetish smell resembling dried vomit, it is thought the Dilophosaurus mixes their venom with powerful stomach acids from their organs. If spat in the eye's, the victim has around two hours to wash out the venom with special antivenom created by InGen. If not done so, the victim becomes permanetly blind. Seconds after being spat in the eyes, the victim feels immense pain, and they see flashing spots against black; a sight resembling being blind. The frill of a Dilophosaurus is used to frighten attackers, intimidate rival males and attract mates. When the frill is exposed, ti shakes around violently, creating a rattling sound simular to a rattlesnakes rattler. This alone can frighten away attackers the size of Thescelosaurus, and intimidate most rival males. Along with the gooey venom, Dilophosaurus can emit toxic venom from it's tooth glands. It can inject this in it's victims by biting it deeply, injecting it into the bloodstream, then back off. Like the Compsognathus, the Dilophosaurus venom has a calming effect on the victim, and with multiple injections, the victim can be paralyzed in less than several minutes. Because of it's relatively weak bite force compared to it's body size, Dilophosaurus prefers to attack it's prey with it's gooey venom and it's narcotic venom rather than crushing it with it's jaws. Dilophosaurus is a nocturnal hunter; using it's unique coloration, it can hide very well in the night jungle, and sneak up on it's prey without it knowing. Dilophosaurus stalks it's prey intensively, monitoring it's movements and learning about it's weaknesses, or if it's injured. After it's period of patient stalking, the predator attacks. With it's colorful frill exposed to 'hypnotize' the prey, the Dilophosaurus spits the venom glob at the prey, aiming for the eye's or the mouth. After the prey is hypnotized, the carnivore kills it's prey, chewing at the windpipe. After killing it's prey, the Dilophosaurus begins eating it. Although it doesnt have a bone-crushing bite force like Tyrannosaurus, Dilophosaurus still tends to chew on the bones of it's prey, trying to get at the delicious marrow. During the breeding season, the crest of male Dilophosaurus becomes very colorful, with the white stripe and the red blotches become vibrant. Male Dilophosaurs flash their frills to females in a rythmetic pattern, all while bobbing his head and producing screeching and hissing sounds. After mating, the male Dilophosaurus sticks near the female, and he helps her intensively in creating a nest and setting up a home. The average female Dilophosaurus lays around twenty eggs, although most of the time only seven or less survive. Dilophosaurus chicks are very energetic, playful and curious of their surroundings. Often at times, the young Dilophosaurs take their time in subduing thier victims, often watching as their victim becomes paralyzed and dies, whereas the adults waste no time in killing prey and victims. Dilophosaurus communicate with a variety of sounds, such as whistles, chirps, squeaking and most often hooting sounds. When agitated or aggresive, it produces a loud, deafening, hissing screech or scream.
Additional Information: On both Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna, their is a rare variant of Dilophosaurus. This variant is nicknamed the Flame or Fire Dilophosaurus, and they get their nickname from their coloration. These types of Dilophosaurus are colored yellowish orange, with black spotting marking their body. They have emerald green eyes with slitted black pupils and pale green underbellies. With a vibrant red crest with black striping, they often resemble the African leopard. Unlike the normal Spitters, these have no frill, and their venom resembles modern human saliva or spit; foamy, clear and with hundreds of tiny bubbles inside them. This variant is quite rare, and it is thought that this Spitter is in decline, with less than seventy-five left.
Maximum Age: The oldest an adult Dilophosaurus can reach is 29.4 years.
