About Hylaeosaurus
Hylaeosaurus is an important dinosaur in the history of dinosauria. This animal was first discovered in 1833 by Gideon Mantell. At this time, the term dinosaur had not yet been coined. In 1841, Richard Owen grouped Hylaeosaurus along with two other 'terrible lizards,' calling them dinosaurs. Thus, Hylaeosaurus is one of the three original dinosaurs.

Most of what we know about Hylaeosaurus comes from a fossil discovered in southern England. This fossil is still embedded in solid rock, and as a result is difficult to piece together. As a result, much of what we believe about Hylaeosaurus is actually borrowed from its close relatives such as Polacanthus.

Hylaeosaurus was likely a solitary animal, not living in herds. It foraged through the underbrush in search of plant life that it could eat.
