Monolophosaurus actually an interesting subject to convergent evolution. A peak at the top of his head, like that of Coelophysids crested. Monolophosaurus peak, however, is different in that it is hollow, like the top Lambeosaurine. Hollow in the top of the channel causes the nasal cavity, suggesting Monolophosaurus can sing through his peak, again as Lambeosaurines.
