Pronounced (MON-oh-LOAF-oh-SAWR-us) Monolophosaurus (meaning "one crest lizard") was a medium-sized meat-eating dinosaur with a single crest on the top of the skull. It was a theropod from the late Jurassic period, about 170 million years ago. This speedy, bipedal dinosaur had long, strong legs, short arms, a large head, and was roughly 16 ft (5 m) long. A partial fossil was found in NW China in 1984. The type species is M. jiangjunmiaosaurus. Monolophosaurus was named by paleontologists Zhao and Currie in 1993.
