DINO-A-DAY #73: Panoplosaurus

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: Panoplosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: pan-OP-luh-SAWR-us
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Alberta, Canada, 1917
FUN FACT: Foreleg muscle attachments suggest that Panoplosaurus could have charged enemies like a rhinoceros, which most experts agree would have been awesome to watch.
