Dimorphodon ("two-form tooth") is a pterosaur believed to belong to the family Rhamphorhynchoidea from the Early Jurassic Period of southern England. It is unique among pterosaurs because it has two types of teeth like that of a mammal.

StoryEdit

CreationEdit

Dimorphodon was recreated by InGen for the Masrani Global Corporation owned dinosaur park Jurassic World.[1]

A Dimorphodon attacking park visitors.

Unlike the original Dimorphodon, their wingspan was one meter longer than the originals, and they were said to be able to use their back legs for grasping objects like the cloned Pteranodon.[2]Their colors were blue-ish gray on top and mostly gray on the stomach with pink on its face. On the neck and back, they have thick pycnofibers that all pterosaurs had in real life but is rare in InGen's cloned pterosaurs.

Dimorphodon lived in the Jurassic World Aviary as neighbors to the larger Pteranodon.[1][2][3]

Isla Nublar Incident (2015)Edit

During the rampage of Jurassic World's latest attraction Indominus rex, all the residents in the Aviary, including Dimorphodon, were freed when the Indominus rex broke into the Aviary in its rampage, creating a large opening the Aviary. The pterosaurs then escaped and wreaked havoc on the island. A mixed flock of Dimorphodon and Pteranodon traveled to the Main Street of Jurassic World where they attacked the human visitors in the area, when Gray, Zach and Zara were stuck in the Main Street. Gray attempted to run to safety but this almost led to him being decapitated by a Dimorphodon but luckily Zach pulled him back just in time. One Dimorphodon attempted to attack Owen Grady by pouncing on him and tried to maul his face but it was shot down by Claire Dearing who picked up a dropped gun.[1]

One Dimorphodon managed to fly out of Isla Nublar, but was soon killed by an InGen Soldier who saw it flying when he was being transported to the island. After the incident, any remaining Dimorphodon were flying wildly on the island.[1]

The Lost World: Jurassic Park PS1 gameEdit

Dimorphodon appears in the PSX And Sega Saturn Version of The Lost World. Dimorphodon lived in Habitat B of Isla Sorna together with Staurikosaurus and Baryonyx. Dimorphodon can be easily killed. Interestingly, in the Sega Saturn Port, it has translucent wings.

Jurassic Park III: Park BuilderEdit

Dimorphodon can be created in the GBA game Jurassic Park III: Park Builder.

LEGO Jurassic WorldEdit

Dimorphodon appears in LEGO Jurassic World. Its involvement is near identical to its actions in the Jurassic World film.

It first appears in the level "Under Attack" where it is freed by the Indominus rex smashing into the aviary. In the opening cutscene, three Dimorphodon that escape attack JW001, causing it to crash. They and Pteranodon then attack Main Street and its visitors. In the level itself, it is encountered in the first half as an enemy NPC.

Its last appearance in the game's story is in the level "Main Street Showdown" where 3 are seen perched on several rooftops watching the fight between the Indominus rex and the Velociraptors Charlie and Echo. Shooting all three with the plush toy launcher built in the level earns the player(s) a minikit. One more that is perched is encountered in the final half near a pile of dung on a high top to the left and soon flies away when one of the characters approach it.

The amber that unlocks Dimorphodon is found in the first level it appears in: "Under Attack". The minikits that can be collected from this level also unlock its skeleton and its skeleton skin as well. As a playable dinosaur in the game, it is much like the Pteranodon except it can not pull switches like the latter.

Jurassic World: The GameEdit

see Dimorphodon/JW: TG

Dimorphodon became a creatable legendary pterosaur in the game on September 30th, 2015.

Jurassic WorldEdit

A Dimorphodon "growler" figure was released for the toy line. Pressing its legs together causes it flap its wings and shut its jaws while letting out a sound effect of doing so. Pressing the wound on its back also causes it let out a roar and its wound to glow bright red briefly.

Dimorphodon also has a Hero Masher figure where its parts can be used with other toys in the line to make unique creations.

Behind the scenesEdit

Dimorphodon's appearance in Jurassic World is similar to the portrayal of Anurognathus in the ITV series Primeval, which is a small pterosaur from the Jurassic like Dimorphodon that attacks humans in flocks.

Patrick Crowley, the producer of Jurassic World has said that he is a "big fan" of Dimorphodon.[4] It, along with the Mosasaurus, was also a favorite animal of Colin Trevorrow, the director of the film, as well.[5]
