“Is it a spiky Bumpy? Because it looks like a spiky Bumpy!“
– Alan Grant
Gastonia is a genus of ankylosaurian dinosaur that lived in what is now North America, specifically in the western United States during the Late Jurassic period, approximately 125 million years ago.
Gastonia was a medium-sized ankylosaur, with an estimated length of about 13 to 16 feet (4 to 5 meters).
Ankylosaurians as we all know were a group of heavily armored, quadrupedal dinosaurs known for their distinctive bony plates and spikes. As part of the genus Gastonia also had a heavily armored body, featuring bony plates also known as osteoderms embedded in its skin, providing protection against predators.
Additionally, Gastonia also had a series of large, pointed spikes along its sides and back, contributing to its defensive armour.
The Morrison Formation, where Gastonia fossils have been found, is known for its diverse dinosaur fauna.
