Here we go, an 'enormous spine lizard', or Gigantspinosaurus. Not as large as its cousins, but with impressive shoulder spines, clearly for defense.

Gigantspinosaurus is a genus of stegosaurian dinosaur that originated from Late Jurassic Asia. Gigantspinosaurus fossils can be discovered in the Ziliujing Formation in China, which unlocks for expedition teams on Isla Sorna.

Description

The Gigantspinosaurus is a medium-sized dinosaur with enormous spikes on its shoulders. It also has a paired row of small plates running down its back and four spikes on its tail. The base genome seems to be a coffee brown with a pale underbelly and darker brown stripes.

Behaviour

Gigantspinosaurus is the last dinosaur found at the Ziliujing Formation and is harder to keep comfortable than Chungkingosaurus and Huayangosaurus. They require a minimum herd of at least four, or else they'll become quickly uncomfortable.

Paleontology

Gigantspinosaurus was an unusual stegosaur. Although it looked fairly similar to Kentrosaurus, it has characteristically huge shoulder spikes. These spikes would've been a formidable form of defense or used as a display feature for mates. The abundance of primitive stegosaurs such as Gigantspinosaurus and Huayangosaurus mixed with more advanced genera such as Chungkingosaurus and Tuojiangosaurus in the Dashanpu formation of China suggest the stegosauria evolved in Asia before migrating to Africa, Europe and North America.

Paleoecology

Gigantspinosaurus lived alongside a myraid of dinosaurs such as the larger predator Yangchuanosaurus, the sauropods Mamenchisaurus and Omeisaurus, as well as other stegosaurs including Tuojiangosaurus, Chungkingosaurus, and Chialingosaurus.
