Scutellosaurus facts

This small dinosaur was built like a armored ornithischian hut it was too primitive to belong to either of the two main groups the stegosaurs or ankylosaurs . Its back was covered with bony bumpsin the skin or ossicles .Some were flat and some were raised , like ridges they were spaced just far enough apart so that a theropod would break at least one tooth if it tried to bite Scutellosourus. This dinosaur walked on two legs unlike the other armored ornithischians
