2010 Canada $4 Dinosaur Collection - Euoplocephalus (#5) (TAX Exempt)

Euoplocephalus tutus was a large, 5.5 m (18 ft) long armadillo-like creature that lived in Alberta between 76 and 70 million years ago. It weighed some 2.5 t (2.8 tn) and its back was covered with large and small pieces of bony armour embedded in the skin. Even the dinosaur's eyelids were covered with moving bony plates. In fact, "Euoplocephalus tutus, - means "well armoured head;" a name derived from the ancient Greek language. Euoplocephalus was also equipped with a defensive tail club that was formed by four bony growths fused together.

Despite the warring impression of such extensive body armour, Euoplocephalus was a slow-moving herbivore that fed on fleshy, low-lying vegetation.
