Cryolophosaurus

Cryolophosaurus

Cryolophosaurus ellioti was a large theropod dinosaur that stalked Antarctica during the Early Jurassic, around 194 to 188 million years ago. Back then, the continent would have been covered by temperate forests as a result of the warmer global climate. The distinctive pompadour-like crest on Cryolophosaurus’s head has inspired the nickname “Elvisaurus” for this dinosaur.
