on Fossil Fighters (the game) they don't put the crest and if they did (in which I cannot see it) it's too small

GREAT DRAWING!

New studies point towards that cryolophosaurus is more related to Dilophosaurus (And if I'm not mistaken, they always make Monolophosaurus more primitive than it looks), so getting Cryolophosaurus out of Tetanurae and put with coelophysoidea...but left Monolophosaurus closer to Allosaurus and its allies.

They stuck it out to the middle Jurassic.

very strange crest for a theropod. Makes me wonder if it's not just a one-time deformity ^_^'
