Scutellosaurus was about 4 feet (1.2 meters) long, and about 1 foot 8 inches (0.5 meters) tall at the hips. It weighed something in the region of 22 pounds (10 kilograms).
Scutellosaurus had a covering of hundreds of bony plates (scutes) on its back and neck. Some of the scutes were flat whereas others were pitted. Unusually for an armored dinosaur, it was bipedal - however it had a long tail and long arms so may have browsed on all fours.
Scutellosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived from 200 to 196 million years ago
