Polacanthus (SciiFii)
Polacanthus modernus (name meaning "many thorns of modern times") is an armoured dinosaur, part of the nodosaur family that originally came from 130 to 125 million years ago in the Early Cretaceous in what is now western Europe, and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and now lives in the Cretaceous Safari tour in Cretaceous Park located at Sacramento, California.

Polacanthus modernus is a bulky, broad and tank-like solitary herbivore that mainly feeds on fruits, leaves, shrubs, nuts, cycads, ferns, and horsetails, but can occasionally feed on insects to supplement its diet or when plant food is scarce. It can grow to be about 5 metres (16 feet) in length and weigh about 1.9 tons. The spikes of Polacanthus modernus are used between males in contests of strength to defend territory or gain mates, they are also used for intimidating predators and for active self-defense against predators. The female Polacanthus modernus lays around 9-14 eggs about 3-4 months after mating, the eggs hatch around 2-3 months after being laid, and the mothers care for their hatchlings until they're sub-adults, when they are old enough to fend for themselves.
