This comes from yesterday’s chat about Cryolophosaurus skulls
From what I remember that skull was reconstructed that way from partial material (a lot of the snout was missing) back when Cryolophosaurus was still thought to be an allosaurid? Now that it’s considered a coelophysoid people tend to reconstruct it with the longer, narrower head and kinked snout that’s typical of that group.
Here’s a skeletal (Paleoillustration note: See the top image) that shows how much of the skull we actually have versus how much had to be reconstructed.
I think that’s it (but I’m not sure that cryos are definitely coelophysoids, from what I’m reading, it’s still an open question).
I’ve added another skeletal reconstruction (image below) by Scott Hartman, there’s a very informative discussion on that thread.
niikudragon, it looks like we were wrong.
