Guanlong


"Guanlong" lived about 160 million years ago in the late Jurassic. It was one of the earliest tyrannosaurs,which were mostly from the late Cretaceous  . Guanlong had three long fingers on each hand , unlike other tyrannosaurs that had only two. Its unique features was the crest on top of its head. It was as  large as its snout area and about 2.5 inches high but it was delicate and too thin to be used in combat . It was probably only used for display-either to attract a mate or to be identified as a Guanlong
