Summary of what I learned

Scutellosaurus was an extinct genus of thyreophoran bird hipped dinosaurs. Scutellosaurus was a 3.9 feet long ground-dwelling omnivore. It weighed twenty-two pounds and was two feet tall. Scutellosaurus lived approximately one-hundred ninety-six million years ago, during the early Jurassic. It was a bipedal lizard that lived in the north U.S.A. It was also an ancestor of the later armored dinosaurs. The final thing I have to say about scutellosaurus is that it was an ambidextrous reptile. That was the summary of what I learned.

Connections I made while researching

One connection I made while researching was Scutellosaurus and I are bipedal. Which means we both walk on two legs. Another Connection I made while researching was Scutellosaurus and I are both omnivorous. Those are the only two connections I made while researching because nothing really hit me at the time.
