New Polacanthid Found In Utah

From KLS.com:

Utah bone diggers have uncovered what could be the largest and heaviest armored dinosaur on the planet. The dino appears to be a new species and has yet to be named.

With a six foot forearm and stretching 25ft. the new Polacanthid is three times the size and weight of an armored dinosaur called Gastonia. At more than 10-thousand pounds, even a pack of Utahraptors couldn't turn this thing over. As for a new species, if it gets a name?

Dr. Reese Barrick: "Something that includes tank, or monster, or mountain, or something."
