The skeletons of five dinosaurs are exhibited in the Dinosaur Hall. One is the fossil skeleton of Dilophosaurus sinensis, which lived in the early Jurassic Period. This specimen was discovered with a prosauropod, Yunnanosaurus, in 1987. Dilophosaurus is carnivorous and characterized by a pair of semicircular bony crests on either side of the skull. This dinosaur is a rare species in Asia. Only three dinosaurs of this kind have been discovered and the other two are in the United States.
