Palaeoscincus the dinosaurian skink

Palaeoscincus costatus is a species of indeterminate Late Cretaceous(Campanian) ankylosaurian dinosaur, possibly an indeterminate nodosaurid, known only through it's teeth, and has a taxonomic history which is very convoluted. The generic name means "ancient skink".

Since the only illustrations I've seen of P. costatus were retrosaurs, I took it upon myself to draw this dinosaur with the updated knowledge about thyreophorans.

You indeed gave it a somewhat skink-like appearance. Coincidence?

Yes, it's coincidence, but it goes well along with the name! :D
