If this proves popular, I will work on some other Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures,as well as accessories and variants of this model if requested. I could possibly do things like battle wounds, dino-rider armor, a wall mountable bust, a jungle base. So Please post your makes, hit like, and provide feedback on what you would like to see in the comments.
Parasaurolophus was a hadrosaurid, part of a diverse family of Cretaceous dinosaurs known for their range of bizarre head adornments. This genus is known for its large, elaborate cranial crest, which at its largest forms a long curved tube projecting upwards and back from the skull. Charonosaurus from China, which may have been its closest relative, had a similar skull and potentially a similar crest. Visual recognition of both species and sex, acoustic resonance, and thermoregulation have been proposed as functional explanations for the crest. It is one of the rarer hadrosaurids, known from only a handful of good specimens.
As always I will promote and REWARD the first person to post a quality make (must enable tips on your profile for reward). A quality make is a successful, complete, hopefully decent looking print of at least 80% scale. This doesn't necessarily need painted but extra bonus if it is.

Probably best to orient this on his feet as provided to hide supports and clean up, this is a good candidate for sla with the detail level but a challenging print to clean up no matter how you do it... If requested in the comments I will work on splitting this model to be easier to print.
Scanned using the Einscan SP, then altered, enhanced, modified, and optimized in Meshmixer
I can not take full credit for this design as it is heavily based off of the photos shown and the Mattel Jurassic World Dino Rivals Dual Attack Parasaurolophus dinosaur action figure, if you want to skip the print and own a high quality Parasaur buy the Mattel Jurassic World Dino Rivals Dual Attack Parasaurolophus dinosaur action figure.
