Jurassic Dilophosaurus

Jurassic Park, home to many dinosaurs of the Cretaceous, was also home to Dilophosaurus. Remember the parts of this wonderful scene that were added by Crichton, retained by Spielberg, and have no known basis from the fossil record and enjoy the scene regardless. Probably my favorite of all the Jurassic Park scenes floating around the internet (also, listen closely near the beginning for the funny and overused slide whistle):

Now, for comparison, view these much more fossil based reconstructions of Dilophosaurus from When Dinosaurs Roamed America and note the differences between the two clips (there will be a Christmas Eve test):
