Cryolophosaurus was a 20 ft long theropod that lived in Antarctica. Although the continent was higher up and warmer back then, it still was in the arctic circle, and most likely had snowy winters. I couldn't stop myself from giving him fuzzy feet, although it's just artistic speculation.

So ahead of its time! Years later feathers & beak confirmed on large theropods.

This one looks better more than Yutyrannus with fluffy coats that adapted cold-envierment. An especially also it was possibly Dilophosauridea member, it means more close relative of Dilophosaurus than to Carnosauria as possible.

I don't think there is evidence of Crylophosaurus having feathers, but this is great none the less.

Oh...he is beautiful! I love how furry he looks! Yes...even the feet. But I completely believe they would have been fluffy-like. Warm feathers for those wintry times. Presently my favorite dinosaur and you do him SO much justice!!!
