Liaoningosaurus modernii (name meaning "Liaoning Province lizard of modern times") is a species of unusual ankylosaurid that originally lived in the what is now China in the Early Cretaceous and was once extinct, but Liaoningosaurus modernii has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and now lives in Cretaceous Park located in Sacramento, California. It is an omnivore, unlike most other ankylosaurids, feeding mainly on underwater plants, leaves, fruits, ferns, cycads, insects, crustaceans, mollusks, fish, frogs, smaller reptiles, eggs, small birds, small mammals, and carrion. Unlike most ornithiscian dinosaurs, it is semi-aquatic, spending much of its life in freshwater lakes and rivers, only to come into land to rest, bask, and/or to lay eggs. Like hippos, it is a social herd-dwelling animal that lives in groups up to around 25-50 individuals at a time, and during mating seasons, males fight over other males with their sharp jaws until one backs down, and the winner gets a right to mate.
