Guanlong wucaii by EmperorDinobot Guanlong wucaii by EmperorDinobot
Guanlong wucaii is one of those new dinosaurs that have Asian dialect names, like Dilong, Mei long, and the Mongolian Tsagaan mangas...*sigh*

So, Guanlong is thought to be one of the most basal tyrannosauroids. It also has similarities to Proceratosaurus (thought to be its young by some), and other basal coelurosaurs, mainly Ornitholestes and Proceratosaurus.

He's often pictured with feathers, as feathery integument has been found on another basal tyrannosauroid: Dilong paradoxus (coming soon!). But perhaps its most striking feature was the crest over its head. The good thing is that, Proceratosaurus' half cut-off head can be reconstructed in a similar way :lol:. It's also said that Guanlong may be the young of another Middle Jurassic theropod, Monolophosaurus, which also shares some similarities with avetheropoda (It's apparently a little more basal than that, but Taxonomically, Monolophosaurus doesn't fit well with anyone. I think he's an Allosaurid, as originally suggested!)

So...yeah.

Who says Proceratosaurus is a young Guanlong?

Some people have said so...

Recently...


But it's widely believed that Guanlong is an adult.
