|Q:||Ask a Question about How did slow-moving dinosaurs protect themselves?|
Second, a plant-eater might run away very fast, like many of the bird-like dinosaurs. Finally, a slow-moving dinosaur may have been covered with spikes and horns to help deter potential attackers.
As well as being covered with jointed armor and defensive spines, Euoplocephalus carried a massive club on the end of its tail which would have crushed any predator.
Triceratops and its relatives had long horns and bony shields over its head and shoulders.
Some dinosaurs developed a hard jointed skeleton as a defence, rather like modern armadillos. Often the bony plates covering the dinosaur's back were interlocking, making it difficult for a predator to reach the soft flesh. Many of the ankylosaurs had long spikes on their body, providing extra defences.
Triceratops was a huge animal with heavy armor around its head and shoulders. The horns would have been used as a defense against predators.
