DINO-A-DAY #78: Polacanthus

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: Polacanthus
PRONUNCIATION: pol-a-KAN-thus
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Isle of Wight, 1865
FUN FACT: In the TV show Dinosaurs, the character Spike was a Polacanthus. In total, the sitcom aired 65 episodes, while real dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago. Coincidence?
