Euoplocephalus (pronounced yu-OP-lo-SEF-ah-lus) meaning ‘well-armored head’ (Greek eu- meaning ‘well’, hoplo- meaning ‘armed’ and kephale- meaning ‘head’) was one of the largest genera of ankylosaurian dinosaurs, at about the size of a small elephant. It is also the ankylosaurian with the best fossil record, so its extensive spiked armor, low-slung body, and great club-like tail are well documented. Genera that are thought to be the same as Euoplocephalus include Scolosaurus, Anodontosaurus, and Dyoplosaurus.

I always pronounce it "oio-plokke-fallus". And I won't change that!
good picture. I like the green-grey combination! But my favourite Ankylosaur will always be Saichania (not only because I like dinosaur names that end with "ia")
