Ankylosaur bodies were tough and strong!
Ankylosaurs had wide backs. An Ankylosaurus could be five feet wide. That is almost as wide as a car!
Bony armor covered most of their bodies. Many ankylosaurs even had armor on their eyelids!
Strong, muscular legs carried these heavy dinosaurs.
Ankylosaurs had giant stomachs and guts. They needed a lot of space to digest all the plants they ate.
Most ankylosaurs had large spikes as part of their armor. Some spikes stuck straight up and others stuck out to the side.
Some ankylosaurs had bony clubs at the ends of their tails. They had strong muscles to swing the clubs
from side to side.
How big were ankylosaurs?
Ankylosaurus was as long as a pickup truck and as heavy as an African elephant. Other ankylosaurs were smaller.
