Oohkotokia horneri by Fragillimus335 Oohkotokia horneri by Fragillimus335
Oohkotokia horneri was named and described like...now, by Paul Penkalski. The generic name, Oohkotokia, is derived from the Blackfoot word "ooh'kotoka", meaning "Child of stone" I believe this is the first Oohkotokia on Deviantart!!! My first first! I whipped this up at 3 A.M. so have mercy. All we know about this beast so far, is that it had smooth triangular armor studs, and large triangular horns on the skull.

More scanty evidence suggests it may have been 4-5 meters long and roughly 1200kg in weight.

It is very unlikely that Oohkotokia is the same as Scolosaurus. They are from different formations and different time periods.

Unfortunately, it was discovered that it was only a junior synonym of Scolosaurus.

Which is an now unused name for Euoplocephalus too

Scolosaurus, Dyoplosaurus, and Anodontosaurus were split off from Euoplocephalus recently. In fact, they were only sunk into Euoplocephalus in 1971 by a really lazy and careless act of ov3erlumping anyway.

That's still up for debate! I like splitting over lumping!

This is a great picture, and I sometimes stay up until 3 am to draw too! I have one suggestion though you should put this Ankylosaur in a larger piece with some other dinosaurs from the Two Medicine Formation!

Actually, this is the second one. :iconalbertonykus: alerted me about this creature, and I drew one and took a pretty shoddy pic of it.

sweet! :) I thought the same thing you did: "child of stone" is indeed fitting for an ankylosaur.
I was thinking, based on its large head horns, it might be a possible direct predecessor of Ankylosaurus (also has very prominant head horns). Opinions?

Not enough to go on yet...but I did hear it was ~5 meters long, and probably 1200kg so getting pretty big already!

I don't know what to think, everything about their phylogenetics is pretty obscure, and I'm not much of an ankylosaur guy....I need to study up!

I'm actually working on two ankylosaur-focused pieces that I'll be posting soon. Would it be okay if I asked you for a critique when I post them?
