Antarctopelta


Antartopelta had a body shield and many spikes. Scientists do not know if it had a club at the end of its tail. Antarctopelta had similarities to earlier ankylosaurs but it appeared much later. This led scientists to believe that it became isolated from other ankylosaurs that continued to evolve on the main continents.
