Description

Euoplocephalus is one of the largest ankylosauridae at around 8m in length and weighing 3T, it feeds on ground-level plants with its tapered beak. It is best known for its clubbed tail, armor plates on its back and horns at the base of its head – all of which help Euoplocephalus to protect itself from predators. In fact, the name Euoplocephalus translates to ‘well-armored head’.

Discovery

The first Euoplocephalus fossils were discovered in Alberta, Canada in 1897, when paleontologist Lawrence Morris Lambe unearthed a partial skull and small bits of armor. Further Euoplocephalus bones were discovered throughout the 20th Century, including a tooth excavated by Lambe himself in 1902.

Paleoecology

Euoplocephalus dates back to the Late Cretaceous period, around 70-75m years ago and roamed the vast floodplains of Canada and the western states of the USA, staying close to rivers to ensure easy access to water and vegetation. It lived alongside other dinosaurs including Parasaurolophus and the fearsome apex predator Albertosaurus.
