What happened to Dilophosaurus?3,807 Views4 RepliesAdd A Reply
The dilophosaurus lived 193 Million BC in what was later known as Arizona. Its hypothesized to be a fish eater due to its elongated hook snout and was one of the earliest large theropods. So what happened to this majestic creature?
Maybe Dilophosaurus died out, It had competition too.
I have been doing some researching, the dilophosaurus primarily ate fish, aquatic invertebrates, carrion, and small vertebrates.
Also I have been reading the dilophosaurus form (the crests) was present in many early jurassic theropods, I wonder if the dilophosaurus went extinct through evolving into more advanced theropods.
Yeah, I can see both happening. As for compeition, I think the odds were low since the Early Jurassic ecology was just recovering from the End Triassic extinction
