Deriving its name from the Ancient Greek polys - many and akantha - thorn or prickle, is an early armoured, spiked, plant-eating ankylosaurian dinosaur from the early Cretaceous period of England. Polacanthus was a quadrupedal ornithischian or -bird-hipped dinosaur. It lived 130 to 125 million years ago in what is now western Europe. Polacanthus foxii was named after a find on the Isle of Wight in 1865. There are not many fossil remains of this creature, and some important anatomical features, such as its skull, are poorly known. Early artist depictions often gave it a very generic head as it was only known from the rear half of the creature. It grew to about 5 metres 16 ft long. Its body was covered with armour plates and spikes. It possibly was a basal member of the Nodosauridae.
