The titanosaurs of Madagascar are known to have armor, plus a few
new forms from South America whose armor differs greatly from that of
*Saltasaurus*. As for sauropods, *Omeisaurus* is believed to own a
club, a small series of oblate spheres fused to one another, that was
found disarticulated from any skeleton, so we don't know for true if
*Omeisaurus* (*O. fuxiensis*, to be exact) had a "club", if that's
even the right word for it.
