Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia

  Superorder Dinosauria

  Genus Gastonia
Gastonia was an armored herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in North America during the early Cretaceous period, about 125 million years ago.

Gastonia was about 15 to 20 feet (4.5 to 6 meters) long, and weighed around 1 ton. It was protected by armor, most noteably its shoulder spikes. However, since fossils are usually found disarticulated, it is hard to know how many spikes each individual animal had.
