I'm looking at an illustration of Estemmenosuchus by John Sibbick in
"Dinosaurs, A Global View". He shows two variations, and one of them
does have very long horizontal skull potrusions. The other doesn't.
Maybe these are sexual or age differences? By the way, "A Global View"
is a great book for its illustrations of non-dinosaurs. I highly
recommend it.

What the heck is wrong with this Erik chap?
