Charonosaurus Flashin' the Goods by Fragillimus335 Charonosaurus Flashin' the Goods by Fragillimus335
This is my second All Your Yesterdays entry, a Charonosaurus bull going all out to catch the eye of some ladies...How could anyone miss a speculative skin sail that huge!

Charonosaurus was a huge 13 meter hadrosaur probably weighing ~8 tons!

Wow! What an interesting concept! This would be insanely cool if hadrosaurs such as Charonosaurus and Parasaurolophus had his sort of sail.

Charonosaurus: Calling all predators in the area! easy to spot meal right here!
Try not to take offence to that, It's a nice piece.

No problem!  It's an issue many living male animals have to deal with, peacocks, frogs that sing very loudly, fireflies,... I guess love beats the risk of getting eaten!

And thanks!

It is just a speculative picture, it likely didn't have a full body sail! Although there is a hadrosaur called Ouranosaurus that has a sail!

Please feel free to look around my gallery!
My characters are Cryptaloids, a half human half animal species I created.

Looks kinda unrealistic, what is supporting the peak of the sail? Thin air?

No offense, but the highest point of the sail is supported by nothing, Charonosaurus doesn't have Dimetrodon-like spines, the peak of the sail would droop instead of standing like that...

The sail is held taut by the animal tilting its head forward, the sail is slightly rigid, so it stays upright. When the animal relaxes its head the sail would fold up! I imagine the dark stripes to be keratinous strips that help support the sail.
