Duration: 01:49

Dr Phil Manning of the Museum of Manchester talks about a working model of an Ankylosaur tail club built by special effects experts Dave Payne and John Pennicott. The tail model smashes through a log of wood - giving a reasonable estimation of what it could do to the leg bone of an attacking Tarbosaurus.
