Zhejiangosaurus is a nodosaurid from Eastern China, Asia.
The partial specimen discovered from the site revealed no special features. So, it was likely for this genus to be similar to other extinct armored dinosaur lizards.
A dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous period, Zhejiangosaurus can be described as a typical nodosaurid. Named after the site and province it was discovered in, this dinosaur would have been the size of an average height human. Not much is known about the Zhejiangosaurus, apart from it being a herbivore and its classification. The fossils had no distinct features and the material referred to belong to the holotype- ZNHM M8718. The reclassification of Zhongyuansaurus and Liaoningosaurus led to Zhejiangosaurus being classed as the only known member of the Nodosauridae at least at the time of discovery.
The pronunciation of Zhejiangosaurus is 'Zay-jee-ang-o-sore-us'.
Zhejiangosaurus was an extinct genus of dinosaurs belonging to the Nodosauridae family.
Zhejiangosaurus roamed the earth during the Cenomanian stage of the Upper Cretaceous Epoch.
Zhejiangosaurus became extinct by the end of the Cenomanian stage of the Upper Cretaceous Era.
Zhejiangosaurus was a terrestrial species.
The fossils of the type species were discovered from Lishui, Zhejiang Province in Eastern China.
It is not known who Zhejiangosaurus used to share their territory with.
The lifespan of Zhejiangosaurus is not known.

The fossil representation of the Zhejiangosaurus revealed it to be a member of the nodosaurid family. The dinosaur's skeleton parts like the complete hindlimbs and partial left ilium do not have any special features.
The fossils of the type species included an incomplete skeleton. This skeleton had eight vertebrae with a preserved sacrum, partial left ilium and complete right one, right ischium's proximal end, two hind legs, unidentified bones, and caudal vertebrae (14).
The communication style is unknown.
The Zhejiangosaurus was 17 ft (5 m) in length.
The speed by which Zhejiangosaurus would have moved is unknown.
Zhejiangosaurus would have weighed around 3086.47 lb (1400 kg).
Both sexes will be referred to as adults.
The baby would be a juvenile.
The aggression showcased by the Zhejiangosaurus has yet to be ascertained.
The type species was named after the site from which the fossils of this dinosaur from the cretaceous era were found.
Lü Junchang et al. (2007) named the type species Zhejiangosaurus lishuiensis.
