herbivore – ate huge amounts of low–growing plants
  • Big and slow, I spent most of my time nibbling large amounts of plants.
  • My bony tail club was a deadly weapon if I needed to defend myself.
  • I was covered in protective plates and spikes, even on my eyelids.
  • I was as heavy as five cows, easy to imagine when you know I ate the equivalent of 700 carrots every day!
