SCELIDOSAURUS HARRISONII
"James Harrison's Leg Lizard"
Owen, 1859, 1861
Length: 4m (13ft)
Weight: 250kg (550lb)
Location: West Dorset, England
Era: Sinemurian age, lower Jurassic (195 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Ornithischia
Thyreophora
Thyreophoroidea
Scelidosauridae

Notes:
When Scelidosaurus was first discovered by James Harrison in 1858 a few theropod bones had been mixed into the animal on accident. It took over one hundred years to correct this mistake in 1968.

UPDATE MAY 07, 2013:
There were several anatomical inaccuracies in my original that I noticed nearly immediately after completing it, but I have only just now gotten around to updating it. Most notably in the forelimbs, which I just got completely wrong. I redrew its limbs and other more minor aspects of it, and have given it an updated color scheme. Go here ([link]) for the original and compare.
