Crichtonsaurus is a small ankylosaurid from late Cretaceous China. It is named after Michael Crichton, author of the novel Jurassic Park, due to his novel causing the public to become interested in dinosaurs. The genus used to contain two species, however, in 2015, one of the species was found to have enough differences from the genus Crichtonsaurus to receive a new genus name, Crichtonpelta.
