I shared another article about this same fossil on Twitter a only couple of hours ago. It certainly has piqued a lot of interest. Amazing how well preserved it is - just in the right place at the right time for the soft bits not to be eaten away.
When I was a child (40 years ago), I actually wanted to be a paleontologist. I think I read every book I could find about dinosaurs, and my parents still joke about the time they had guests over & a couple of hours after I had gone to bed I "sleepwalked" into the party and loudly told everyone how big a dinosaur's tooth is before turning around & going straight back to bed.
Seeing the picture of this one tested my knowledge from all those years ago & looking only at the picture I guessed that it was an ankylosaurus. And I was correct - the fossil nodosaur is from that family of dinosaurs.
Thanks for posting the link to the article BouldRake.
