it's possible that the scutes that morris described were not actually from thescelosaurus, so it's still up in the air.

Really?! I tought they have it. So Thescelosaurus is only a normal hypsilophodontid?

yeah, i guess. it's a bit on the big side and its legs are stockier and not at all built for running fast compared to other "hypsilophodontids."
