Polacanthus
by: Rachel H., Grade: 5



At least 65 million years ago, dinosaurs walked the Earth. They all lived in Pangea (all the contents squished together). One of the many dinosaurs was the Polacanthus, a dinosaur with spikes on its back. The spikes on these toothless dinosaurs were from the neck to the tail. The spikes were like armor on a knight. It was found in England. The Polacanthus weighted at least one ton or 900 kilos! It was at least 5 feet (or 1.7m) high and 13 feet (or 4m) long. Polacanthus means “many spines”. It was also a herbivore (plant-eater).
The Polacanthus is one of the many dinosaurs that is still a mystery to us all.
