DINO-A-DAY #71: Euoplocephalus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

NAME: Euoplocephalus
PRONUNCIATION: you-op-luh-SEF-uh-lus
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Alberta, Canada, 1902
FUN FACT: Euoplocephalus means “well armored head” and when scientists picked the name they weren’t kidding -- this species even has armored plates that slide down to protect its eyelids.
