Guanlong (name meaning "crowned dragon") is a genus of proceratosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived in Asia during the Jurassic period. They are featured in the third episode of Dinosaur Revolution, Survival Tactics.

Physical Characteristics[]

Measuring 3 m (9.8 ft) long, its fossils were found in the Shishugou Formation, dating to about 160 million years ago, in the Oxfordian stage of the Late Jurassic period, 92 million years before its well-known relative, Tyrannosaurus, evolved. This bipedal saurischian theropod shared many traits with its descendants, and also had some unusual ones, like a large crest on its head. This crest is thin and delicate, suggesting that it likely served as display organs, possibly for events like mating. However, unlike later tyrannosaurs, Guanlong had three long fingers on its hands and was relatively smaller compared to its derived descendants. Aside from its distinctive crest, it would have resembled its close relative Dilong, and much like Dilong, it may have had a coat of primitive feathers.

Survival Tactics[]

Two Guanlongs were seen chasing two different species of mammals during the episode. Eventually, they end up on the back of a large Mamenchisaurus, later revealed to be resting in the middle of a lake with several crocodyliforms. It is unknown if they survived.


  • The mammals the Guanlong were chasing where a few million years younger than Guanlong
  • Guanlong should have had more feathers in this program, as evidenced by Dilong and Yutyrannus.
