Gargoyleosaurus facts

This was one of the earliest known ankylosaurs and one of only two,so far from the Jurassic . It had a shield over its pelvis and large ,hollow pointed skin armor on its back . This armor looked similar to that or a thorny devil. A set of side-way facing spikes ran along each side of its body. Unusually, the front part of its mouth had seven teeth-mot ankylosaurus had no teeth in the front of their beaks
