EDMONTONIA LONGICEPS
"Long headed one from the Edmonton Formation"
Sternberg, 1928
Length: 6.6m (22ft)
Weight: 2.7 tonnes (3 tons)
Location: Alberta, Canada
Era: Maastrichtian age, upper Cretaceous (71 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Ornithischia
Thyreophora
Thyreophoroidea
Ankylosauria
Nodosauridae

Notes:
It may not be apparent from the outside, but Edmontonia (as well as some other Ankylosaurs) has unusually complex nasal cavities; some studies have even suggested that it would have been capable of producing loud honking noises.

I always ask myself, how are Nodosaurids defending themselves, they don't have a club on the tail like other Ankylosauria.
