Answer: Quoting djd4ce

Cryolophosaurus (pronounced /ˌkraɪ.ɵˌlɒfɵˈsɔrəs/ or /kraɪˌɒlɵfəˈsɔrəs/, meaning “cold crest lizard”) was a large theropod dinosaur, with a bizarre crest on its head that looked like a Spanish comb. Due to the resemblance of this feature to Elvis Presley’s pompadour haircut from the 1950s, this dinosaur was at one point informally known as “Elvisaurus”

    The Cryolophosaurus aka “Elvisaurus”. Pompadour-crest a la The King etc..


  11. Elvisaurus or some such… dinosaur named after Elvis because of the head gear that resembles Elvis’ hairstyle.


  12. Before Cryolophosaurus got its scientific name was called the “Elvissaurus” because it seemed like comb hair with Elvis Presley.

    The nickname of Cryolophosaurus was, at one time, Elvisaurus due to the pompadour-like growth on it’s nasal ridge.
