Echinodon was about 2 feet (60 centimeters) long, and probably weighed around 5 to 10 pounds (2.25 to 4.5 kilograms).
Echinodon was named by Sir Richard Owen who incorrectly mistook the animal for the lizard. Today, however we now know Echindon was a dinosaur, and recent research suggests it is closely related to Heterodontosaurus.
The name Echinodon means "hedgehog tooth" and was chosen in reference to the spines on the animal's teeth.
Echinodon was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived about 140 million years ago
