One of the more popular areas that Dilophosaurus has marched into is the video game world. Rather than only making a mark in Jurassic Park games Dilophosaurus makes appearances in games like Primal Carnage. It has also been modded into other games like Zoo Tycoon, but I think Primal Carnage may be the non-Jurassic Park height of dinosaur video games; where else can you hunt dinosaurs with and against other people, or hunt people as dinosaurs, online after all? Dilophosaurus has also been modded into a lot of Minecraft and Spore videos.
"Analog" versions of Dilophosaurus in popular culture include many different skeletal reconstructions and displays, some of which we have seen during this week. The variation in these representations of Dilophosaurus are fantastic and actually fun to compare to one another. The Museum of Paleontology at Berkley has gone far enough to put together an audio guided tour of their analog/digital combined Dilophosaurus exhibit that is a lot of fun to listen to (Sam Welles made a few good points about the frill and skeletal anatomy that would have supported the frill). Despite stepping on some feet with the present known facts, there are a lot of supporting characters that back up a lot of the reconstructions out there; some sculptors and paleontologists putting them together highlight specifics more than other characters obviously. There are reasons for that, but we cannot, and do not have the time, to delve into every reconstruction and determine why certain characteristics were highlighted over others.
