8.0.4 UPDATE

Dilophosaurus ('die-lo-foh-sawr-us', meaning "Two-Crested Lizard") are small to medium-sized diurnal (meaning active during the day) crested prehistoric creatures from the Early Jurassic period that were included in the original Fossils and Archeology mod. Males and females are around 1.5 blocks tall at the hips and approximately 5 blocks long. Males have orange crests whilst females have green ones. Newborns are 0.1 blocks tall, and are fully grown in 8 Minecraft days. They can be given essence of chicken to grow faster, at the cost of hunger.

Dilophosaurus, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various means. Having a low mood means it may attack or avoid you, having a high mood will make it passive. Dilophosaurus requires a higher mood than normal to not attack on sight. Right-click it with a Dinopedia to see its current mood.

A fossil version of the Dilophosaurus can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being a Dilophosaurus.

Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player through the culture vat. As they are dinosaurs, they hatch from large eggs that need to be warmed by torches.

Dilophosaurus are fast, territorial carnivores that will attack mobs that are near them. If one Dilophosaurus attacks or is attacked, other nearby Dilophosaurus will join in, even if tamed. Dilophosaurus cannot break blocks. They are also aggressive to hostile mobs such as zombies and creepers when in a sad mood or worse. Their prey when hungry or in a bad mood includes all vanilla animals, Compsognathus, Deinonychus, dodos, Dryosaurus, Gallimimus, Gastornis, Kelenken, pachycephalosaurus, Phorusrhacos, pteranodon, quagga, Titanis, and Velociraptor. Their predators include allosaurus, sarcosuchus, spinosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus.

Dilophosaurus will interact with scratching posts, tethered logs, and chase toy balls, bringing up their mood significantly. They are diurnal, meaning they will be active during the day and sleep at night.

Adult Dilophosaurus can breed and lay eggs every five minutes as adults if there is a male and female present. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.


Dilophosaurus can be tamed through three ways like most other prehistoric creatures. The first is that the player must stay within a six block radius of the egg while it hatches to tame the baby. If the player fails to do this, they will have to hand feed it until it is tamed or forcibly tame it with a whip. Tamed Dilophosaurus can be ordered with a bone.


Adult Dilophosaurus are rideable after being tamed. It is controlled with a whip. It can be controlled the same way as a horse. When riding, the Dilophosaurus is very fast.


When Dilophosaurus are hungry, they will hunt and kill the aforementioned mobs for food. They can also use a feeder if one is in sight, and can be hand-fed all meat and mod fish, aside from rotten flesh.
