Pugiodorsus squameus is 9 feet long species of basal thyreophoran dinosaur that is found on Skull Island. The animal is described in the book "The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island" (from 2005).


The Pugiodorsus is a common, armor-plated basal ornithischian with long spikes on its shoulders from the jungles of Skull Island. It is a common prey for Carvers. Moving in small herds, Pugiodorsus rotate guard duties, with one or two keeping watch while the rest graze low plants. Alertness is their greatest defense, necessitating great stealth on the part of Carvers (and other predators like Foetodon), even at night. Their bladed shoulder spikes, backward facing to protect them from pursuing predators, forces Carvers to take care when making killing bites. A wise hunter makes sure to bite low, aiming for the stomach or neck.
