  I'd say ... and? I'm willing to bet quite a few basal ornithischians
were armored in some fashion. *Scutellosaurus* and sundry other forms
similar were armored. It's possible *Echinodon* was armored (no, I'm not
talking about those *Hylaeosaurus* scutes the type was found with), but
that's related to a different theory. So, fairly many?

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
