Saltasaurus facts

This sauropod lived in Argentina near the end of the Cretaceous . IT was short and stocky . It had sets of bony lumps in its skin, called dermal ossicles , that lay along each side of its back bone . They ranged from 1 to 8 inches long-too small to be used as armor to break an attacking theropod's teeth
