OH MY GOSH they are so young in the picture at the bottom of the post… which means this is a LONG belated post but at the same time I squeeeee at the adorableness… so that makes it all cool, right???

Another day another dino another herbivore from the Cretaceous period. The Struthiosaurus is an armoured dinosaur that was the smallest of the ankylosaurs (found to date). Found in Europe it is quite the impressive prey… well armoured, and low to the ground… not an easy target.

Out of the book

Our video included an image of our dinosaur but was not overly educational otherwise.

In the plains of Asia during the Jurassic period you could find roaming the earth a rather large herbivore called the Shunosaurus. Found specifically in China, it is the only known saurapod with a club on the end of its tail (probably used for defense). A number of skeletons have been recovered of this dinosaur, making it one of the best known of its species.

And now for the videos! First of all is the “live action” fight between our Shunosaurus and two Sinraptors. Quite the chase!

The second one is from the Inedine Dinosaur Show with his piece on our Chinese herbivore.

    Long neck and tail


We do enjoy our unique looking herbivores and Pinacosaurus is another of these. With its unusual head, armoured body and clubbed tail, this Cretaceous period dinosaur was found in one of our favourite countries… China. It is believed that is must have been a desert animal as most of the fossils have been found in sand dunes. In fact, quite a few herd type deposits have been found.

Now the I’m a Dinosaur video.
