Ankylosaur Dinosaurs



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Thyreophora
  Infraorder Ankylosauria
The Ankylosauria (meaning "fused lizards") dinosaurs were a infraorder of the the Ornithischian dinosaurs. Together with the Stegosaurs, Ankylosaurs form the Thyreophora ("shield bearers") suborder of Ornithischia. Dinosaurs in the Ankylosauria infraorder include Ankylosaurus (of course!), as well as, among others, Animantarx, Edmontonia, Euoplocephalus (sometimes known as "Scolosaurus"), Gastonia, and Tarchia.

Ankylosaurs first appeared during the early Jurassic period, and survived until the end of the Cretaceous period, about 65 million years ago, when all the remaining non-avian dinosaurs became extinct.

Dinosaur Classification

All Ankylosaurs were herbivores (plant-eaters), quadrupedal (walking on four legs), and protected by armor. Although the amount of armor did differ between species. The Ankylosaurs are principally divided into two families - the Ankylosauridae and the Nodosauridae - the big difference between that most (but not all) of the former have bony clubs in their tails, whereas none of the latter family where equipped with such clubs. Recent research has however added one additional family, Scelidosauridae to the Ankylosaurs - this group currently contains only two early and primitive armored dinosaurs: Bienosaurus and Scelidosaurus.

Product Description:
Fifty years after Professor Challenger’s discovery of the Lost World, America’s last dinosaur circus has gone bankrupt, leaving a dozen avisaurs, centrosaurs, ankylosaurs, and one large raptor abandoned. Now a daring expedition plans to do the impossible: return the Jurassic giants to the wild. Two filmmakers, a circus trainer, a journalist, and a young Peter Belzoni must find a way to take the dinosaurs across oceans, continents, rivers, jungles, up a mountain that has been isolated for seventy thousand years . . . Then, if they make it, all they will do is face the prehistoric wonders, dangers, and terrors of the Lost World.
