Cryolophosaurus (Frozen Crested Lizard)
A dinosaur discovery on the Antarctic continent. And one of the wildest head adornments on any theropod. It makes you wonder what else is under all that ice?

I always like to imagine this guy with small layers of skin on his crest that he could flush with blood to create dazzling colours for mating, food rights or territory scraps. Gorgeous picture by the way! I'm a dino enthusiast myself!

Who knows?.....Post-K/T nonavian dinosaurs?......

Awesome work, though he really should have intugement, considering he lived near the South Pole. It would've been at least a temperate environment.....

I wonder which cryo was true, the bulky abelisaurian version like this one or the dilophosaurian alternate like in Dinosaur Revolution

Well, I guess I just have to add this one to my favourites! (check out my Avatar picture to see why). This is really beautifully done, the subtly of your tonal transitions is just gorgeous. I really admire the way you have used a bright colour scheme while still making the animal look natural (and not toy-like). He really looks alive!

I was looking at fossils picture of it´s skull, it´s eyes were really so on the side that i doubt it had binocular vision. I wonder was it just a scavanger.

I like the angle at which the dinosaur is being viewed, not a portrait or plain side view. Also, love the scales and the coloring. Keep up the good work!
