Lovingly referred to as the "shanty", this behemoth is the isle's largest herbivore outside of sauropods. They are big enough to shrug off most attacks, but can still be vulnerable to apex predators.
When cornered, a shanty rears back on its hind legs, putting nearly 16 tonnes of weight into a powerful stomp, able to kill or severely cripple Tyrannosaurs. Their skin is also surprisingly thick, meaning they can take a good beating and remaining standing.

Doing this takes a lot of energy though, meaning they cannot run for too long without tiring out.
