New-look Dilophosaurus



Here's Dilophosaurus. Maybe I'll find time for a blog on this one, but a lot of things we think we "know" about Dilophosaurus aren't true, like the overly short ilium and bizarre upper scapula from Welles 1985 osteology (which were propagated to more recent skeletal reconstructions). We also don't know the shape of the crests for certain - I've followed Jaime Headden's interpretation of the back of the crest as broken (rather than a splint that stood alone), but we really don't know for sure either way.
