The oldest known fossil of an ankylosaur, a group of dinosaur species that resembled turtles with spikes covering their backs and which were equipped with armored balls attached to their tails, has been found in the Middle Atlas mountains in Morocco.
However, thin portions of the fossil show a unique fiber ornamentation only found on ankylosaurs, The Guardian reported.
The fossil is from the mid-Jurassic, about 168 million years ago, which makes it official that ankylosaurs existed back then.
