FABROSAURUS
FRENGUELLISAURUS

 
FABROSAURUS

Also known as:
Description: Herbivore, Bipedal
Order: Ornithischia

Family:

Notes: Based upon fragmentary remains discovered in Lesotho, Africa, the Fabrosaurus specimen may prove to be a Scelidosauridae or a Lesothosaurus. Fabrosaurus' long hind legs suggest that it was a good runner. Its shorter forelimbs bore five-fingered hands, with which it grasped the plants it ate. Its jaw was equipped with very tiny, ridged teeth, and a horny beak.
