A heavy suit of armor was a very effective way for some dinosaurs to protect themselves. The best suits of armor were developed by a group of plant-eating dinosaurs called Ankylosaurus (ann-KY-luh-sawrz). Many Ankylosaurs had long tails with big bony knobs at the end. When they were attacked, they would pull their godies in under their armor (like turtles), and swing their long tails like clubs. As you can see in this attractive poster, the tails could do a lot of damage--even to a huge meat-eater Tyrannsaurus rex. The Ankylosaur shown in the poster is Euoplocephalus (YOU-plo-seph-uh-lus).
