Schleich Dilophosaurus #14567 Review:
What jumps out immediately is the bright blue base with red highlights. It really makes the figure stand out from the others. This figure has a moveable jaw. The mouth is well done. Tongue has a nice curl and the individual teeth are well formed. This is the "beefy-ist" of the Dilophosaurus figures. It looks stronger / more solid and slower than the other figures. While some of the others look like speed demons. this doesn't have that same sense of flow.
We would consider this to be the largest of the Dilophosaurus toys available. Overall one of the best Dilophosaurus models.

Dilophosaurus Dinosaur Facts:Dilophosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaurs (hollow bones and 3 toed limbs) that lived in what is now North America about 193 million years ago. It was also the largest known land-animal of North America during the Early Jurassic period.
Slender and lightly built, its size was comparable to that of a brown bear. The largest known specimen weighed about 400 kilograms (880 lb), measured about 7 meters (23 ft) in length, and its skull was 590 millimeters (23 in) long.
Its snout was narrow, and the upper jaw had a gap or “kink” below the nostril. It had a pair of arched crests on its skull. The lower jaw was slender and delicate at the front, but deep at the back. The teeth were long, curved, thin, and compressed sideways. The teeth in the lower jaw were much smaller than those of the upper jaw. Most of the teeth had serrations at their front and back edges. The neck was long and its arms were powerful, with a long and slender upper arm bone.
Interestingly, the Dilophosaurus’ hands had four fingers (Theropods typically only have 3); the first was short but strong and bore a large claw, the two following fingers were longer and slenderer with smaller claws; the fourth was genetically unusable.
