Minmi

About Minmi

One of the first armored dinosaurs to evolve, Minmi was discovered in Australia. During the Cretaceous period, Australia was actually further south than it is today. This early armored dinosaur was only about 3 meters long, or about 10 feet. While large by today's standards, for armored dinosaurs, Minmi was quite small. Minmi had a sharp beak and a large flat tooth it could use for grinding its food, which consisted primarily of plants. Minmi was covered with small spikes which were used for protection. This animal was first discovered in 1964 by Ian Levers, and was later named in 1980 by Ralph Molnar.
