Small mouth

The crest at the back of the head is longer than the rest of the skull, which requires some special adaptations by the rest of the body. When Parasaurolophus needs to tip its head back, the end of the horn fits into a little dent or notch in the dinosaur's spine. If the notch wasn't there, the dinosaur would be restricted in its head movements.
