Dinosaur II - Ankylosauridae

Ankylosauria meaning "fused lizard", all have fused bones along their back which form plates of armor. Most of them have a large bony club at the end of their tail. Ankylosaurus is the largest and best known of the family. The Crichtonosaurus was named after Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park.

Most Akylosauria have been found in the Western North American continent, Mongolia and China. They lived in the late Cretaceous and were amongst the dinosaurs destroyed by the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event (the big asteroid).
