How tall would Eustreptospondylus be max? Could it reach 2m tall?

Estimate length is 4.5 m but then the only known skeleton is from a juvenile so a full adult may possibly have reached a height a 2 m at shoulder level.

Thanks. Did Eustreptospondylus have little crests like Allosaurus? I have seen artworks where the crest is more evident, while others were not.

Can't really tell. The known skull is missing the relevant bones: palaeos.com/vertebrates/therop…

What is the current accepted skull shape for Cryolophosaurus? Originally it was portrayed with a broad snout, now there are some depictions of it with a narrower snout.

Here is a reconstruction of the skeleton by Mike Hanson: sites.google.com/site/cryoloph…
The white part is actually what is known. The grey parts are inferred. Cryolophosaurus was a primitive tetanuran and would have had a more elongated skull than say Allosaurus.

Very interesting reconstruction of the skull. Is such a reconstruction something to be taken with a grain of salt or is their more to be said about this hypothesis that Eustreptospondylus is a direct ancestor to spinosaurs?

This comes from this study: [link]
The skull is based on the reconstruction that came with the study (it was on the palaeos.com site but it is apparently down)

What about the partial skeleton in the Oxford Museum of Natural History?

The skull doesn´t look as elongated as in your reconstruction.

You really learn a new thing every day! =) I must say, this reconstruction nicely portray this hypothesis - the hints in the jaw morphology especially. ;)
Great work once again! =)

You're welcome! I have once read that dilophosaurus was related to a spinosaurid ancestor... This only shows that new data changes everything =D

I can see the spinosaur characteristics. I thought at first it was a coelophysoid or spinosaur looking at the thumbnail, lol. Great job! :)
