Saltasaurus (SciiFii)

Saltasaurus modernii (name meaning "modern lizard from Salta") is a species of medium-sized herbivorous titanosaurid sauropod dinosaur which originally lived in what is now Argentina during the Late Cretaceous Period and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and now lives in Cretaceous Safari in Cretaceous Park located at Sacramento, California. Small among sauropods, though still heavy by the standards of modern creatures, Saltasaurus modernii is characterized by a short neck and stubby limbs, and can live to a ripe old age of 120 years old. It was the first genus of sauropod to be known to have possess armour of bony plates embedded in its skin. Such small bony plates, called osteoderms, have since been found on other titanosaurids (both living and still-extinct). Female Saltasaurus modernii is a social animal, living in herds consisting of daughters, mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmother, while males are solitary in most of their lives, but during mating seasons, males battle other males to win a right to mate with females.
