Dilophosaurus is an average sized dinosaur you will encounter on the island. They are slow, brightly coloured and easily killed; however, do not underestimate these creatures, as they are also highly venomous. In addition, they have the ability to spit their poisonous concoction over large distances. The venom of Dilophosaurus has the ability to blind foes, temporarily disorientating them while it approaches and injects venom into the bloodstream through piercing bites. Due to this they are deemed very dangerous.
Dilophosaurus by nature is not venomous; unfortunately for those concerned the animals have been altered to induce this behaviour. The horrific dangers aside, it is scientifically astonishing that the species has survived in the wild for this amount of time with these alterations.
Keep your eyes open.
Bite: A Dilophosaurus bite injects a victim’s bloodstream with poison causing painful disruptions to the cardio vascular system; repeated exposure to this poison can be fatal. (In 1.3 it has a bite like the scientist's tranquilizer)
Spit: Dilophosaurus has the ability to either spit in a concentrated ball over large distance or in a wider spray covering a small area; The spit burns on contact with the skin and causes irritation if it comes in contact with the eyes, causing pain, dizziness and temporary blinding. (This has been removed in the 1.3 patch.)
Roar: The Dilophosaurus convulses its body, letting out a high pitched screech. This allows it to concentrate its internal poison allowing it to perform a long range spit for a short time. (This has been edited in 1.3 so that the roar allows two spits.)
- Never charge headlong into a large group, as you will die quickly. Stay back or under the cover of vegetation and spit to split up the group.
- It is easier for the Dilo to take on a lone human than a group. Blind the human and then bite them repeatedly, circling them so it makes it harder to hit you.
