New tank-like dinosaur found in Andes mountains (Chile).

Scientists searching for fossils high in the Andes mountains in Chile have unearthed the remains of a tank-like mammal related to armadillos that grazed 18 million years ago.
The discovered creature was a primitive relative of a line of havy armored mammals, which culminated with Gyptodo, a mamal about the size of a Volkswagen Beetle, 3 meters high
( 10 feet), covered in armor plates and with a spiky tail used probably for defense.
The creature was named "Parapropalaehoplophorus septentrionalis" (why would someone chose such a name) and you can read more about it here : click for full story.
