The armoured dinosaur measured between 6 to 8 metres long and weighed about 4,000 Kgs. It existed near the end of the Cretaceous period approximately 68 to 66 million years ago. The Ankylosaurus had an unusual build with a wide and low skull, a horny beak and two backwards-facing horns. It fed on plants and had a large gut to store food. The tail of the Ankylosaurus had a club on its end and side-facing nostrils. Besides, the body of the Ankylosaurus appeared to be fused in some parts with some discs covering the neck.
