An armored coffee table with legs by ScottHartman An armored coffee table with legs by ScottHartman
Edmontonia, dinosaurian dreadnought of the Late Cretaceous. The side-view hides how ridiculously wide and flat-topped the animal is, and also downplays the giant sets of double shoulder spikes that protrude at close to a 45 degree angle. You very much would not want to meet the business end of an Edmontonia in a dark alley...or even a well lit one.

Will you be doing other ankylosaurs (maybe Polcanthus? :D)

Did ankylosaurs have three or four toes on their hind feet? I've seen restorations with both, and I don't know what to think.

You have to sneak up on it and then put your coffee down and run away real quickly. I recommend only filling your mug half way up ;)

I should point out that the Euoplocephalus skeletal linked above is a chimera; it is a Scolosaurus body with a Euoplocephalus head and an Anodontosaurus tail club. All of them were considered synonymous when the skeletal was drawn though.

I always resisted to draw an ankylosaurian, fearing i'd create an eldritch abomination... But thanks to your skeletal i could try...

True. Ankylosaurs are some of the most fascinating creatures in nature, with all the different armor patterns they evolved.

Sweet! This is my 4th fav dino! Do you know what predator this guy would usually face? I've watched a documentary about it facing down a Carnotaurus but these two didn't live that close......

Depends on the species.

E. rugosidens is from the middle-late Campanian Two Medicine and Dinosaur Park formations. It would be dealing with Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus.

E. longiceps comes from the late Campanian-early Maastrichtian Horseshoe Canyon Formation, where Albertosaurus was the primary predator.

E. schlessmani, from the mid-late Maastrichtian Hell Creek formation, would have faced off against Tyrannosaurus.

Probably Albertosaurus or Daspletosaurus were its main enemy. Edmontonia lived in Alberta and those were the main big predators there (with Albertosaurus being much more common, but also the more lightly built of the two).

well, hopefully a coffee table has legs. otherwise, it isn't a Table
joking aside, I really do like how this looks. almost like a picture you'd see on the Box of a Jigsaw puzzle. except this Jigsaw puzzle is an Ankylosaur Skeleton

Awesome work! I have a doubt: How many fingers ankylosaurs had in hands and feet? I did some researches, but the results I found are ambiguous (5 for hands and 4 for feet, 4 for hands and 3 for feet, 5 for both, and so).
Reply
:iconscotthartman:
ScottHartman Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
It's four toes in nodosaurs (including Edmontonia) and polacanthines, while it's three toes in the tail-clubbed ankylosaurines. As far as I know they all have five fingers, although in some the first three are much stouter than the fourth and fifth fingers.

This side-view still gives a good indication of the wide flatness I think, but yes, the monochromy totally hides the "true shape" of the spikes
