The spitting and drooling Rainbow Dilophosaurus is a Tier 2 Forest dino. The name for this two-crested lizard comes from the Greek roots di-(two) + lophos-(crest) +sauros-(lizard). Sure enough, the specimen directly below sports two oversized head crests.

Below, we see a stunning Dino-Diorama featuring a family of these drooling multi-colored Dilophosaurus dinos. Judging from all that drooling and spitting, it appears likely these toddlers are learning one of their first lessons in life - never, ever eat those pretty red flowers. Those are the notorious red sniffle weeds!

These unfortunate dinos are acutely allergic to the red sniffle weeds that grow through-out their natural habitat. Ashes from the two volcanos in the background only aggravate their desperate condition.
Here are some additional snapshots in various life stages, from egg, to baby, then toddler and teen.
Curious Case of Benjamin ButtonEdit
This is the only dino which exhibits the following strange ailment. In all four stages, whether baby, toddler, teen or adult, the dino regresses to the baby stage while sitting. This is nicely demonstrated in the following two snapshots from TinyDude's village. The screenshot on the left shows a fully grown adult Rainbow Dilosophosaurus. But just seconds later, the next shot shows the same dino resting or sitting - but as a baby! The dino flips back and forth between the two stages, always regressing back to its baby form while sitting.

The problem is that the sacred Book of Dinosaurs specifies the sitting image for all four stages is a sitting baby!
This is not because sitting images for all four stages do not exist. Indeed here they are.

Stage Oscillations for the Rainbow Dilophosaurus
by Professor Onestone
The sitting form for each of the 10 levels of a dino is specified in the Dinosaurs file by the field imageName. Ordinarily there are four sitting images.
Baby s1: for stages 1 to 3
Toddler s2: for stages 4 to 6
Teen s3: for stages 7 to 9
Adult s4: for stage 10
Although all four images were created, unfortunately the code for all 10 stages is the same:
This means that in all ten of its stages, the resting form for the dino, i.e. when it is not animated, is the sitting baby rainbow dilophosaurus. No doubt this began as a copy/paste error, in which the Dino God(s) simply forgot to adjust the stages. This theory agrees with the excellent experimental observations of villagers TinyDude and StarAngel proposed earlier.
