Nodosaurus eats from ground herbivore feeders. They are heavily armored and can strike each other and fight predators using their heavy club tails.
Like other ankylosaurids they live in very small social groups and prefer to have few dinosaurs of other species close to them.
Their ideal territory consists of very small areas of grassland and forest.

It was one of the first of this type of dinosaurs to be found in North America. So far only a partial skeleton has been recovered for this genus.
