“When people come to the islands, they expect to see something dramatic, and this Polacanthus you’ve created delivers.”
Polacanthus is a genus of nodosaurid dinosaur that originated from Early Cretaceous Europe. A reclusive animal which does not tolerate more than six other dinosaurs in its enclosure, Polacanthus is first unlocked by the Hammond Foundation on Isla Tacaño.
Polacanthus is a shy species that prefers to live alone or in pairs with only a few other species in the same enclosure.
Polacanthus was discovered on the Isle of Wight in 1865. Unfortunately its remains have so far been rather scattered and only its lower half and parts of its armour being well preserved. Polacanthus lived alongside many other species of dinosaur in the Isle of Wight and the English county of Sussex, including other obscure nodosaurs such as Hylaeosaurus and Horshamosaurus. Other dinosaur types include the fish eating Baryonyx, the fierce predator Neovenator, and the ornithopods Hypsilophodon and Iguanodon.
