Diablosauruses (Red Devil Lizard) are rhinoceros like dinosaurs that inhabits the jungles of Skull Island.


A massive herbivore, Diablosaurus is normally found either singly on in small family groups of three to four. They eat ferns growing on the forest floor and strip vines and creepers from trees. Heavily armored with thick spikes along their back, Diablosaurus is mostly immune to predators, who have far easier prey to catch. If attacked, Diablosaurus will bring its horns into play, swinging its brightly-coloured head around and attempting to gore any attacker foolish enough to get within range. Male Diablosauruses had the largest horns, though they were present in females as well. In overall body shape Diablosaurus resembled ceratopsians, but instead of being relatives of Skull Island's several ceratops species, Diablosaurus represented an unconventional offshoot of a sauropod lineage. They have poor eyesight but a strong sense of smell. Young were born live and grew in the protection of their familial group until old enough to strike out on their own in search of a mate. Diablosauruses usually associated in only small numbers, either immediate family units or mated pairs. Solitary animals, particularly males, were not uncommon.
