Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Parasaur. He’s got a profile like no other.
Now students of all ages have some help in learning how to draw a Parasaur. This dinosaur has an unusual look, with his strange head and tip-toe walk.

The Parasaur is most known for the crest on the back of its head. It has been argued from scientists that the crest was used for multiple purposes. It could have been used to visually recognize the gender of the parasaur and used for acoustic resonance, which means it helped the dinosaur call out to his or her friends.
