Era: Maastrichtian age, upper Cretaceous (71 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria

Notes:
It may not be apparent from the outside, but Edmontonia (as well as some other Ankylosaurs) has unusually complex nasal cavities; some studies have even suggested that it would have been capable of producing loud honking noises.

I always ask myself, how are Nodosaurids defending themselves, they don't have a club on the tail like other Ankylosauria.
