Additional Creatures Wiki

Sauropelta is a species of dinosaur in Additional Creatures.


Sauropelta currently holds the record for largest known Ankylosaur on the island. If you want to be specific, it's a species of Nodosaur: barrel-bodied ankylosaurs which often lacked tail clubs and focused on sheer durability and maximum armor. With a name that means “Lizard Shield”, Sauropelta lives up to that name as one of the most durable creatures on the island. Well-mannered, almost nothing beats sauropelta when it comes to defense. Survivors value it both as a protective mount, a hauler of resources, and of course: an incredible tanking unit.

The Sauropelta reduces the weight of stone, wood, and metal in its inventory.

Most smaller carnivores ignore Sauropelta.


  • Sauropelta means "Lizard Shield".
  • The design of the Sauropelta is inspired by the Sauropelta in Jurassic World: Evolution.
  • Despite what is claimed in the mod, nodosaurs are a completely seperate branch of herbivorous dinosaurs that have armored bodies like ankylosaurs, but have spikes instead of club tails. Them and Ankylosaurs are still closely related regardless.
  • Despite the insane defenses, the reveal of countershading in a close relative, Borealopelta, suggests that Nodosaurs probably still had to worry about predators regardless of age.
