Wonderful skeletal! Can I ask you a thing? Why you reconstructed the "beak" of this animal in this way? 'Cause in the few skeletals I've seen of this ornithopod, there were always deeper and more robust snouts that never looked like that of a lambeosaurine. But probably it's just me ;)

Thanks! It's because that the original praemaxilla bones was deformed and flattened. The all other skeletals of Olorotitan based only on photos of the mounted skeleton (Belgian cast). The fact is on this copy of the skeleton you can see only original (cast) deformed praemaxilla that are placed its dorsal surface more laterally. In the Russian mounting of the skeleton this part of skull was restored.

- the spines of the anterior dorsals are not like a horse -
of course they aren't . I didn't want to compare horses to hadrosaurids although I did it unintentionally.

Собственной персоной Олоротитан. Внушительный гадрозаврин

-but i think that the neck muscles should be bigger,
similar to the neks of horses-

This is one of the main questions fo me. Location of supraspinal ligaments. Anyway the spines of the anterior dorsals are not like a horse. I think that the neck should be like a camel.
