Geocache Description:







(pronounced yu-OP-lo-SEF-ah-lus)

Dinosaur bone unearthed in Burnsville!

Yes, the DinoCache sensation has finally reached the southern suburbs. Recently we partook in an expedition to Hidden Valley Park on the banks of the Mississippi River in St. Paul. While there we unearthed three caches. The final cache, DinoCache: The Valley, unearthed the DinoCache which has now been found in Burnsville. Thanks to ShoeStorm for creating this series. For more information on this unique dinosaur, read below.

Euoplocephalus, meaning 'well-armored head,' was about the size of a small elephant, roughly 20 ft long and 8ft wide. It weighed about 2.2 tons and lived between 85 and 65 million years ago. All four legs were tipped with hoof-like claws. It had a flat, thick, triangular skull, with little capacity for a brain. However, it did have a bony club at the end of its rigid tail, which it carried in a raised position. The tail was muscular, so the club could be swung from side to side for defense. For more defense, the entire head and body of the Euoplocephalus were covered with bands of armor, made of hardened skin and bone.
