Parasaurolophus by Eurwentala Parasaurolophus by Eurwentala
Parasaurolophus walkeri, a late Cretaceous hadrosaur with a particularly handsome head crest. The crest might have been used as a resonance chamber.

When I was a kid, I used to have a plastic toy Parasaurolophus that had green body and a red crest. They even had the same colouring in Dinotopia. Ever since I've felt this is the only way to reconstruct a Parasaurolophus: all the other colour themes just look wrong.

don't they have to wear a veil between the crest and the neck ? If I remember well, a lot of paleonthologist thinks they had it.
By the way, your pic is great ! I just love dinosaure since I was a little child.^^

I don't think there's any direct evidence whether they had a veil or not, though it's certainly possible and often depicted in paleoart. It would make the crest even more visible, which would have been useful if it was a display structure (which is likely).

I think there's a species of dino that supposedly had that, though I can't remember what it was called by it looked like a parasaurolophus.

Nice. Like the scalation detail By the way, if Madbird-Valiant wants pompadours, he ought to see Crylophosaurus (aka Elvisaurus) - not to mention Lambeosaurus.

I'm the same way. I had a toy that was green with a yellow crest, so that's how I saw them.

Great job by the way. Really loving those arms and legs, good angles and attention to detail.
