Lexovisaurus

About Lexovisaurus

Some plated dinosaurs are believed to have had shoulder spikes protruding from their shoulder blades. However, because these spikes were attached to the skin and not to the animal's skeleton, there is no way to prove definitively how the spikes were attached, as the skin has long since decayed in any fossil remains. Lexovisaurus was a medium-sized plated dinosaur that lived near modern day France and England. Many well preserved fossils of Lexovisaurus have been found in this region. It was named in 1957 by Robert Hoffstetter after the ancient Gaelic people who lived in the same region.
