JURASSIC MONTH- Ankylodocus (Walking Fortress) by Taliesaurus JURASSIC MONTH- Ankylodocus (Walking Fortress) by Taliesaurus

With this Second hybrid, I decided to go with the hybrid of Diplodocus and ankylosaurus, commonly nicknamed as the "ANKYLODOCUS"

"The Ankylodocus is the second genetically-modified herbivorous hybrid fabricated by the bio-genetic company InGen, and by far the largest hybrid created so far, towering over even the Indominus rex." 

"When InGen were constructing the DNA of this creature, it was not sure how the armour of Ankylosaurus would effect the sauropod's bulky long-necked body, as both were very different, very unrelated dinosaurs. The resulting Hybrid came off as rather peculiar looking, a titanic herbivore with the body of a Diplodocus and the armor of an Ankylosaurus. But it also seemed to have a small diminutive club on the end of the tail, resembling the club on shunosaurus. But the head was the most jarring detail was that the very top of the head had transformed into a very conspicuous, bony club equipped with several spikes on it's cheeks and a massive beck, likely influenced by the diplodocus long head."

"Many carnivores would possibly think twice before launching a vicious assault on such a creature with armor nearly as strong as steel and as sharp as daggers. But des[ite it's vicious appearance, Ankylodocus is just a gentle giant that simply wears an almost bullet-proof armour."

But being so large and having so surreal a nature, many visitors consider this beast the "towering tank" or "walking fortress" of their Jurassic World.

iirc there was a sauropod like this, with osteoderms along the back similar to this.

This is pretty good and all, but I feel like you paraphrased some of the description from the description of my own Ankylodocus drawing.

neato, if i had to say an issue with this thing existing in real life is that nothing would be able to stop it making plant life populations totally destroyed :D
unless this is shorter than i think it is

well, these things babies are completely helpless, just ankylosaur babies are...so that fixes it.

besides this thing is about the size of a diplodocus.

alright then but what is stopping fully grown ones?
allosaurus stopped larger adult numbers being too high as they hunted adults also
know it wouldn't help shorten numbers much but still

another thing is that, they have engendered the trees to grow faster than normal trees...as a means of feeding the herbivore population

and having geneticists, ingen would want to make sure they herbivore didn't look unhealthy.

that and if they can splice random dinosaurs together they can genetically alter a plant it is only natural :D
