Dinosaur: Dilophosaurus

-Dilophosaurus was a theropod dinosaur from the Early Jurassic
-the name is (pronounced /daɪˌlɒfəˈsɔrəs/ ("dy-LOH-fo-sawr-us") meaning 'two-crested
lizard', because it had two crests (Greek di meaning 'two', lophos meaning 'crest'
and sauros meaning 'lizard')
-the first specimens were described in 1954, but it was not until a decade later
that the genus received its current name
- Dilophosaurus have appeared several times in popular culture, most
prominently as the creature that eats Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park
