Pinacosaurus was about 16 feet (5 meters) long. Like other Ankylosaurs, it was covered with armor to protect it from predators. It also had a bony club at the end of its tail. Its chief distinguish feature are two egg-shaped holes in the skull where the nostrils are normally found.
Many Pinacosaurus fossils have been found together in bone beds, and it is thought that these animals must have lived and died together. Scientists therefore believe that the Pinacosaurus must have lived in herds.
Pinacosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived from 80 to 75 million years ago
