An ankylosaur helps itself to some durians which have fallen onto the jungle floor. It's using the course texture of its tongue (anchored by large hyoid bones as shown by fossil evidence) to file down the fruits' spiky rinds.

This ankylosaur isn't meant to represent any specific species. I based its armor off a reconstruction of the North American Ankylosaurus magniventris, but it would have to some kind of Asian species since durians are native to Southeast Asia
