Unfortunately that is the stuff of hollywood there is no evidence
that Dilopho-whatever had any poison sacs like a spitting cobra
(they are noticable in the skull cavity of the cobra)but such
could be in the realm of possibility. Look at ESTASIA for the
poison. (the other thing in J Park that was hollywoodised were the
velocoraptors they were actually either Deinonochus or Utahraptors)
