Saichania was protected from predators with armor that include bony plates on its back, spikes, and a heavy bony growth on its tail which it swing as a club. The animal was about 23 feet long (7 meters) and weighed about 1 ton.
It is belived that Saichania lived in a hot, arid, desert-type environment - and it seems to have possessed a number of adaptations to this environment. Saichania's skull was equipped with complex air passages that would have helped it keep cool. Additionally, it may have a salt gland near its nostrils.
Saichania was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived about 80 million years ago
