Nodosaurus looks a bit like Ankylosaurus; they're both heavy, squat dinosaurs armed with bony plates. But Nodosaurus is slightly different. Note how the tail has no leg-breaking club attachment and the armour lacks the spikes of Ankylosaurus. The mouth is different as well: it is much narrower than that of Ankylosaurus, which means it can't eat every plant it comes across. This armoured heavyweight feasts upon only the softer and younger plants.
