Which plant and meat-eating dinosaurs had a crest all the way down their backs?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Which plant and meat-eating dinosaurs had a crest all the way down their backs?       
Which plant and meat-eating dinosaurs had a crest all the way down their backs? The plant-eater Ouranosaurus, a close relative of the very common Iguanodon, and many similar large dinosaurs walked mostly on two legs. Ouranosaurus was different because it had a large sail-like crest down its back.

The purpose of this crest is not certain, although as this animal lived in hot regions the crest may have been used as a heat regulator.

A similar dinosaur was Spinosaurus, a typical meat-eater which had a crest 1.8 m high running down its back. It was a very large predator, about 12 m long and weighing nearly four tones.

Spinosaurus would have been rather unwieldy as a hunter, so it may have scavenged the carcasses of dead animals.
