Dilophosaurus A new model of North America's Early Jurassic theropod,
Dilophosaurus, that lived around 193 million years ago. A medium sized
carnivore growing up to about 7 m (23 ft) in length whose head was
ornamented with twin crests probably used in mating rituals. Well known to
the public through its erroneous portrayal in the film Jurassic Park, the
CollectA model incorporates recent paleontological research published in
2020 that amongst other things, corrected the appearance of the crests and
upper jaw. It is the state dinosaur of Connecticut.
