Euoplocephalus Ankylosaurid Dinosaur ToothDescription: This fossil comes from Euoplocephalus, an ankylosaurid dinosaur. The ankylosaurs were the tanks of the Cretaceous, possessing a Ankylosaursubstantial dorsal armor. If that were not enough to discourage predators, they were also armed with a club at the end of the tail which could be swung with disastrous results for an predator that had the temerity to attack. The distinctively-cusped teeth were well suited for shearing plants.
