Scutosaurus was a genus of armor-covered pareiasaur that lived around 252-248 million years ago in Russia, in the late Permian period. Its genus name refers to large plates of armor scattered across its body. It was a large anapsid reptile that, unlike most reptiles, held its legs underneath its body to support its great weight.
Scutosaurus was set to appear in the Jurassic Park Series 2 toy-line, but it was cancelled before it was released. It then appeared in The Lost World Series 1 toy-line in a set with Estemenosuchus. Its appearance is not accurate compared to the real life Scutosaurus due to the fact that no fossil evidence suggests that the creature bore walrus-like tusks as seen on the toy.
Scutosaurus also appears in the Mattel toy-line for 2020. The figure has a dark red coloration with purplish blue stripes on its head and body with a purple spot on its eye.
