It’s the end of the [Western] year, and the holiday season is underway. With this, I will leave the year off unless something comes up with my version of a reconstruction of Edmonotosaurus regalis (actually, Edmontosaurus annectens) rendered via a new specimen suggesting a fleshy “cocks’-comb” surmounted the head. Rather than provide this as an isolated comb-like thing, as the authors did not justify why the margins of the structure are intact, or take into account that the lateral margins of the stucture are flush with the sides of the skull, but reconstruct it as being inset and median, I’ve chosen an alternate take. So I leave you with a final illustration for the year:
